Welcome to the ACTS Podcast!

The Christian life involves not just believing something about Christ but also believing something about us.  We must believe that we are indeed part of Christ’s new creation.  Our faith in Christ must include believing that we are exactly what the Bible says we are.  Our personal self-image should be primarily positive.  This does not mean feeling good about ourselves on the basis of our own achievements or virtuous behavior.  This would be sinful pride.  The Christian self-image means looking at ones self in the light of God’s gracious work of forgiveness and renewal.

“The Cleansing Gift of Christ” – has been given to us because we cannot wash away our own sins, we need His help.  (Ephesians 2:8-10) “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

John's message was, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!"  The King would soon appear, but He could not and would not reign over people who clung to their sins.  They must change directions, must confess and forsake their sins.  God was calling them from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of heaven.

No gift is acceptable to God if the giver is harboring unresolved anger (Matthew 5:21-26).  The giver, knowing someone is holding unresolved anger, has the "Ability" to give a "Response" to that person by seeking them out and reconciling their differences.
