Welcome to the ACTS Podcast!

I must ask God, in faith, for the wisdom for living, because faith endures trials.  Trials come and go, but a strong faith will face them head-on and develop endurance.  Faith understands temptations.  It will not allow us to consent to our lust and slide into sin.  Faith obeys the Word.  It will not merely hear and not do. Faith produces doers.  Faith displays itself in works.   Faith acts wisely.

You hid Your face, and I was troubled.  I cried out to You, O Lord; and to the Lord I

made supplication.” 

If you are in trouble start praying and when you get up off your knees start praising…

Just as God was in Paul’s letter to his friends in Corinth, He must have been in their response.  The letter created not only a godly sorrow in them but also a change of mind and attitude that led to the restoration of their relationship with Paul as their spiritual leader.  And as Paul reflects on their response, he draws the distinction between godly sorrow that leads to repentance and worldly grief that leads to death.  (Ogilvie, 1985)
