Peter Grainger's acts of preaching course.
Earlier this year, I'm not a theologian normal Christian who loves Jesus and he wants to know and Poland more challenged by this passage over the last few weeks and I'm excited to share with you what I find.

Paul's Mission mindset is after a 24-year epic journey of missionary service since he first came to Faith In Jesus after all these years of service good news about Jesus.
What can we learn from Paul's Mission mind-set?
That's what we're going to think about it today as we carry on, through the story.
Before we do have a quick That 28 years of the book of Acts and 20 seconds that possible.
Let us has died on the cross and comes back to life to meet with his followers.
He promises them that'll be filled with the Holy Spirit.
And she seems to promise that they will be his Witnesses.
Drag the surrounding Countryside and to the ends of the Earth at 3, the rest of this week, we see not flee.
This, we see Jesus, for always being filled with his holy spirit as a result, they changed their able to do things, just like Jesus has done and they're filled with a new movement to talk to people about the good news of Jesus.
It's not like Jesus Promised.
This starts in Jerusalem breaks out into the surrounding areas.
Mean a mile comes to Faith In Jesus start sharing, they could use with people who aren't Jews against him into trouble with the Jewish authorities, jailed wait, 4 years in prison.
And eventually after appealing to Caesar's a trial and room, last week we saw I was prison ship was going to storm all set for disaster but miraculously old 270 people on board survive up to Rachel is going to come up for us this morning.

But polshek of the snake Into the Fire and stuff with no ill effects.
The people expected him to swell up with suddenly full dead but have to wait in a long time and seeing nothing unusual happened to him, they change their mind and said he was a god.
Are we going to stand here by the belonging to Publius?
The Chiefs official of the island?
He welcomed us to his home and showed us his generous Hospitality for three days.

When they said happened, the rest of those on the island.
Should they honored us in many ways?
We were ready to sell?
They furnished us with the supplies we needed.
After three months, we put out to sea in a ship, the hood wintered in the island.
It was an alexandrian ship with the second batch of the twin Gods Castor and Pollux we put in at Syracuse State.

An angel appears reassures poll of his calling, to go to room to call Smitty's promises to Paul, even when something comes along with your seemingly derail, all those promises, you know who's the God will make incredible?

It ain't like I'm fighting these promises.
You don't know where to start.
My Bible reading notes, start with an, i or even getting hold of a copy of something, like the checkbook of the bank of Faith by Charles Spurgeon.
That was recommending it to me.
So classic daily reading because I said promises from the Bible, alongside a short devotional thought, all of us here to deliberately stock up.

So balls, not too bothered by the snake, but look at the reaction of the locals.
They are loving the drama.
They are literally waiting for Paul to swell up, Keel over and die and are pulling a range until it happens and what's more.
