Life, Purpose, Mission
Topic: Discipleship Passage: Acts 12:1–19
Today we look at a story that captivated a teenage boy. The story has everything needed to keep our attention. It has action and suspense – an arrest, a jail break via a miracle; with a villain – Herod, a hero – Peter, a super hero – God. It is a story with a little comedy and irony thrown in with a teenage girl – Rhoda and some doubting adults; with an angel thrown in for good measure.
But there is more we can take away from today’s text. We see an example of this year’s theme iWitness: Life, Purpose, Mission. A life that is about being a disciple, a mission of making disciples that ties it all back to our dear Savior bringing glory to the Great I Am.
