Prince of Peace continues its series on the Early Christian Church. Pastor Andrea Fluegel and John Van Hise discuss the story of Peter healing a man in Jesus' name. What does it mean when we look someone in the eyes and acknowledge that they are a child of God? Peter didn't go out looking for someone to heal, but as a witness to the Good News of Jesus, he was prepared. For the Early Church, evangelism began with acts of mercy, just like Jesus' earthly ministry. Followers of Jesus help restore people to a more whole life and bring them back into community. How do you see people's deeper need? How do we see someone else's brokenness when we can't even look at each other?
A 7-week series on the Early Church and its struggles, conflicts, and joys. We learn about how the Holy Spirit was present among these first apostles (sent out ones) just as Jesus told them through the Book of Acts and the Apostle Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians.
