GCP EP. 001: An Introduction to Acts
July 11, 2018 Josh Suson | A man in desperate need of the Gospel
GCP Ep. 1: Intro to Acts
In the very first episode of our show, Josh introduces the book of Acts and discusses what it’s going to look like for us to dive into the book.
He also takes a significant about of time discussing the gospel and what it means to live a gospel centered life.
Things to consider:
The gospel isn’t just 4 books but the whole bible
Living a gospel centered life isn’t just about telling everyone what you believe but living a life that reflects Christ’s story to the world
How can we center our lives around the gospel when we live for so many other things?
The book of Acts isn’t just about the apostles but the continuation of Jesus’ work
