SUNDAY'S sermon

January 23, 2022

In the same way we inherit various legacies from the families we come from – some good and some not-so-good – the Church in all her beautiful brokenness has also left a variety of legacies. This week we look at another word and experience we’re all bound to react to in one way or another: Healing.

Healing isn’t the “Main Thing” in the Book of Acts. It’s not the apostles’ primary mission, although it oftentimes becomes the ‘Main Attraction,’ in the Church – past and present. When it comes to healing – like the Legacy of Conversion – it’s hard to sift through those blessings and bruises. In varying degrees, the tension between faith, healing, science and medicine has been layered onto the Church. What do we believe about God’s power to heal? What’s the blessing of the Church’s Legacy of Healing? What's part of the bruising?

leaving a legacy

The Early Church has left us a lasting legacy, showing us what it means to be The Church. Watch and listen to what they did and said. Pay attention to how God led them. Notice the ways in which God worked in and through them.

What kind of a legacy are we leaving to those who come after us?
