Something For Everyone

Acts is the one book in the New Testament that is classified as a historical book. And yet it is different than secular history in that it is filled with the wisdom of God. Though multiple sermons could be taught verse-by-verse out of this section, we are going to look at some of the highlights as Paul says a last goodbye to the elders in Ephesus before sailing to Jerusalem. There is a word here for those considering and yet not believers, for believers, and for the leaders and elders of churches.
