Pastor Jarrod continues the I AM series, where we examine the seven famous "I AM" statements of Jesus found in John's Gospel. In this message, Jesus declares, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).
What does it mean to "share your God-story?" Paul was a master communicator, but when it came to sharing his God-story, he was meticulously simple. Paul took the time to explain, to an unbelieving audience, his encounter with Jesus. The greatest part of the greatest story ever told is the story of what God has done in us through His son, Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Conversion rocks your world!
Conflict. Dissension. Debate. Just as The Church is seeing "all the things God has done", a council is called to settle the dispute. The process of resolution is uncanny for the sake of the gospel and the expanse of the Kingdom which was meant to create unity. What was the dispute? They must answer, "What does a person have to do to be saved?"
The greatest conversion story of all time in all the world would probably be the story of Saul in Acts 9. But what about your conversion story? Your conversion story is the greatest God-story of all time because it is about you & how Jesus rescued you & is transforming you into his likeness right now! Ananias can be easily overlooked in Saul's conversion story but today we will see why he played such an important role in Saul's conversion.
