By Pastor Glenn Pease There are few stories more exciting than escape stories. One of my favorite kinds of movie when I was a kid was prison escape movies.

What do you think of when you think Pride? There has been a big controversy lately in the news having to do with athletic ware.

In Acts 12:1-25, Luke—the author of Acts—shares an important story about a prideful king, a sleeping preacher, and a praying church. Three incredible lessons emerge as we examine this passage: first, God expects His people to look to Him for help in difficult times. We see the church (once again in Acts) praying, instead of pouting, as trouble comes upon them. Secondly, God sustains His people with peace in the midst of trials. Peter—now for the third time in Acts—is in prison...and he’s sleeping! Only a heart resting in God’s grace and sovereignty can catch some “z’s” behind bars. Finally, God will humble man’s foolish pride and cause His word to go to the nations. King Herod is humbled (and eaten by worms) for his boasting and arrogance. God’s word steams on ahead as we’re now poised for Paul’s missionary journeys from Antioch.
