Acts 18:18

Acts 18:18-19:7

Vintage message from May 4, 1997. There’s a lot of discouraging things that happen in this world. And they happen to believers, or they happen around believers. And you know, it is so easy for us to say, “I’m just going to give up.” And especially, especially when it comes to evangelism, when it comes to sharing our faith with people around us…God does not want us to give up on the people who are around us. God does not…
Acts 18:11

Acts 18:1-17

Vintage message from April 27, 1997. The one thing we have to realize is that God is the One Who’s doing the work [drawing people to Himself]. Through the power of God’s Holy Spirit, He is already touching lives. He is already changing lives, and all He wants from us is to allow Him to use us to show people the love relationship that we have with Him. You know that’s the one thing that people really need to see?…What…
Acts 17:17

Acts 17:16-34

Vintage message from April 20, 1997. The fact is, you have a responsibility to open up God’s Word for yourself, to search the Scriptures, to be like the Bereans. The Bible says they were people of good character. That’s what brings good character: when we are willing to engage in the study of God’s Word. The only good character that there is in life is the character that comes from knowing and growing within the relationship with Jesus Christ, and…
Acts 17:11

Acts 17:1-15

Vintage message from April 13, 1997. What is it in our lives that causes us to grow in character and strength? It’s the manure that’s packed around us in life; the stinky, hard things of life; the things that we don’t want to happen to us; the things that we look up to God and say, ‘God, what could You have been thinking to allow this to happen to me?’ And we do that. And we get angry and we…
Acts 16:25

Acts 16:16-40

Vintage message from April 6, 1997. (Please note: the end of this message was not a part of the original recording.) We can either walk around burdened in our faith in Christ, or we can walk around excited in our faith in Christ. You know, I see a lot of burdened Christians. I see a lot of people who give their lives to the Lord, and then they spend the rest of their lives complaining and murmuring and telling everybody…
Acts 16:10

Acts 16:1-15

Vintage message from March 23, 1997. “We have to understand the call of God on our lives; the specifics of the call of God on our lives. And if God has called us, we simply do what God’s asked us to do and not worry about what anybody else around us is doing, because God will work all things together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. God will do that. I…
Acts 15:8

Acts 15:1-21

Vintage message from March 9, 1997. “We don’t always have to agree with everything that everybody says because they’re a Christian, but we are called by Jesus Christ to love everyone regardless of what they believe, and then we leave it in God’s Hands. If we disagree, we love each other and we move on, and we allow the controversy to lay behind us until Jesus Christ reveals to us what the truth is, and we just simply love.” Dave…
Acts 14:21

Acts 14:21-28

Vintage message from March 2, 1997. “When God uses us, when God does something in our lives, we need to share that with someone…The testimony we share with people is generally the testimony that strengthens them. People want to know that God can, in fact, use us…There are a lot of people out there that are saying, ‘I don’t believe God can use me. I don’t understand how God can use me.’ Well, you know, I can tell you that…
Acts 14:3

Acts 13:44-14:20

Vintage message from February 23, 1997. “No matter what life seems to be offering us, God’s the One Who knows the number of our days, God’s the One Who’s in control of our lives, and there’s nothing that’s going to stop us. If we are willing to serve God, if we are willing to trust Him, if we’re willing to speak His Word boldly, He’s not going to take us until He’s ready for us.” Dave Elkins
Acts 13:39

Acts 13:13-43

Vintage message from February 16, 1997. “What brings [the unsaved] to the place of salvation is hearing that not only does God love them and will do the miracle in their lives, but that God can and does forgive. That’s the real miracle…because of the love of God, we can be forgiven. And then, once we hear that we can be forgiven and we see the display of power that the Holy Spirit brings, then we know we can be…
Acts 13:12

Acts 13:4-12

Vintage message from February 9, 1997. “Jesus gave us a responsibility to love Him, to love the world. Jesus gave us the responsibility to forgive. Isn’t that what He tells us? All through the New Testament, what’s laid out to us the most is forgive, love your neighbor, do what’s right to those that are around you. And this is where we find ourselves all too often: living in our rights rather than living in the privilege and responsibility of…
Acts 13:1

Acts 13:1-3

Vintage message from February 2, 1997. “This is my goal…to take this Word and make it understandable to you so that you can use it practically in your life, and know that God’s Word is still in effect today… And the biggest problem is that oftentimes it is God’s will to move people on…What could God be thinking? Well, the fact is, God was thinking that He’s picked each and every one of us for a purpose. He has created…
