What does it take to turn a city upside down? What does it take to turn a culture upside down? What does it take to turn an entire economic system upside down? It takes the gospel. It takes the gospel that confronts the idols and destroys them. Paul was a stellar example to us on how to impact those around us with the life-transforming power of Jesus.
The gospel is on the move. What an exciting time in the history of the church & what a harrowing time as well. The gospel is now being shared with Samaritans & Philip is preaching the kingdom of God & the name of Jesus. Simon the magician gives us a view into the culture. His story also causes us to evaluate our own conversion stories, the intentions of our hearts, & the transformation process of being a follower of Jesus.
