Book of Acts: Try to Understand

Acts 17. When the Apostle Paul found himself in Athens he worked to understand the people and culture in order to more effectively share the gospel in that context, meeting them where they were. Dale Kuehne reminds us that we need to take the same approach as we bring the good news of Jesus to our communities.

Advent in Isaiah: Come, All You Who are Thirsty

Isaiah 30 and 55. Dale Kuehne asks us to consider the areas of our lives where we might be seeking provision, deliverance, guidance and satisfaction apart from God. We’ll always end up disappointed by those “alliances” and idols, but God invites us to come be satisfied in Him, for eternity, free of charge.

Advent in Isaiah: We’re All in it Together

Joshua 24, Judges 2, Isaiah 6. Dr. Dale Kuehne emphasizes the collective responsibility that we have as followers of God, not just for the present, but for the past and future as well. In Isaiah we see that though the prophet’s words will be ignored by his generation, he must still be faithful to deliver God’s message. These words will be discovered by a future generation who will need them to recognize the Messiah.
