"reaching people in difficult places"
God has a mission and He calls His church to join His mission. What we see in the book of Acts, is that the mission of God is to draw people in to Himself through faith in Jesus Christ. But what kind of people does God use to turn the world upside down?

"ALL THINGS TO ALL PEOPLE"
DR. JIM DENISON
Paul was "all things to all people" for the sake of Christ. Now it's our turn. We are to go to the people and preach Christ. Our Lord calls us to be "fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19). But how? We learn in Acts that the method may very well be there is no method but, rather, a willingness to be used by God in very unique ways.

"THE WHY, THE WHERE, AND THE WHAT"
Paul traveled to many different places and spoke to many different cultures influencing them for the sake of the gospel. How did Paul posture himself to act as a good and faithful servant to such a multiplicity of people? We learn from Paul, who was a follower of Christ, first and foremost, what that looks like and how we might model our lives in the same way.

"A CALL TO PERSONAL HOLINESS"
1 PETER 1:13-19
The reality of the cross is meant to wreck our lives in the most beautiful of ways. It changes everything inside of us and calls us to live holy lives that honor what Jesus has done for us. We often think of holiness as simply 'the act of right living', but we learn in 1 Peter that holiness is much more than that.
