Hello This is a Test

Acts 8:12-13
12 But now the people believed Philip’s message of Good News concerning the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ. As a result, many men and women were baptized. 13 Then Simon himself believed and was baptized. He began following Philip wherever he went, and he was amazed by the signs and great miracles Philip performed.


8:13 Not only the Samaritans but Simon also believed and was baptized. Commentators differ over whether Simon had genuine saving faith. Peter’s strong rebuke to Simon soon after would suggest that Simon did not have genuine saving faith (see vv. 20–21).


  • On Sunday, Clayton shared this quote from John Stott: "Ambitions for self may be quite modest... Ambitions for God, however, if they are to be worthy, can never be modest. There is something inherently inappropriate about cherishing small ambitions for God. How can we ever be content that He should acquire just a little more honor in the world? No. Once we are clear that God is King, then we long to see Him crowned with glory and honor, and accorded His true place, which is the supreme place, We become ambitious for the spread of His kingdom and righteousness everywhere." What are your thoughts?

  • It is no secret that most Christians in our country today are complacent and lukewarm. We've all been there. But if we're going to be world changers, if we're going to serve and follow a radical God with a life-changing, life-saving message of salvation, this cannot be true of us! Half-hearted worship is an oxymoron. That's why Jesus said to be hot or cold, but don't be lukewarm. It makes him sick! What is your spiritual temperature? Have you gotten complacent? If so, how do you turn the corner? 

Prayer Topics:

  • That you would become ambitions for the spread of His Kingdom.
  • That you would be on fire for Jesus. 

This Week's City 7:

Try to commit to memory! 

4. Can a person be good enough to go to heaven? No. Because Jesus rose from the dead, proving He is God, I believe a person is saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
