Welcome to the ACTS Podcast!

Just as a distance runner won't win the race by starting off like a sprinter, you also must manage your spiritual, physical, and emotional energy deliberately and for the long haul.  As you break free of the restraints that have held you back, you will notice that the journey to complete freedom is a process.  Identifying energy drainers is crucial to developing the strength to persevere, the attitude to overcome,and the power to live fully every day. (Burton, Valorie; What's Really Holding You Back? Water Brook Press, Colorado Springs, CO (2005, P. 11))

The last days have begun.  God, through his Son, has fully revealed his nature, and his purpose which stretches back through the prophets to creation. The Son has made it possible for sins to be purged away.  He has been exalted to God's right hand, and has been given a supreme title, higher than that of angels. (Ellingworth, P. 1993)

The Christmas message is that there is hope for a ruined humanity--hope of pardon, hope of peace with God, hope of glory-- because at the Father's will Jesus became poor, and was born in a stable so that thirty years later He might hang on a cross.  - J.I. Packer

Micah in this chiaroscuro takes us back to the cradle of David's line and exhibits the Messiah as representing a new beginning out of a famous heritage. As God unexpectedly anointed David and rescued his people upon the failure of Saul, so he will give his people David's true successor after the defeat of David's descendants. (Wiseman, D. J., Alexander, T. D., & Waltke, B. K. (1988). Obadiah, Johah and Micah: an introduction and commentary (Vol. 26, p. 199). Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press.)
