Our lives are prone to move downward and inward. Away from the things of God to the things of earth (downward). Away from the needs of others to ourselves (inward).
But this is not how it should be as followers of Jesus. How do we renew our lives to be focused upward and outward?
The book of Acts is like a community guidebook of renewal. It tells the story of God’s mission to send and save so that the church may be awakened to our global missionary task. By learning the message of this book, we pray our church will be inspired to go with God on His mission to send and save from Renton to the ends of the earth.
