Paul’s Sermon

In our last part of studying Acts 13, we get to the first documented sermon by Paul.

God’s Process

In the beginning of our study of Acts 13, we see the Holy Spirit say to set apart Barnabas and Saul “for the work to which I have called them.” In this sermon, we explore the foundation and path that God laid before Saul and some of what he went through for the sake of the gospel. We can see the faithfulness of God towards Saul in the ministry that he gave to Saul, and through this we can learn to be faithful ourselves, to trust in God for what is to come, and to be content with wherever we are at today
