Dear Mosaic Family, The Christian life begins with faith. Just faith. Simply faith. Nothing but faith. However, this faith isn't simply knowing some truths or facts intellectually. Genuine saving faith is a pulsating connection to God. It's a vibrant relationship. When we truly believe in Jesus Christ, we are deeply connected to him. Scripture even talks about us being "in Christ." We are in him, and he is in us. If we're connected to Christ, we cannot but be transformed. Our life looks and feels different. We live for what he lives for. We want what he wants. We dream for what he dreams. We pray: "May your will be done, in my life, as it is in heaven." We love him and we long to please him, so Jesus says, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments." We obey, not to be accepted; in Christ, we are accepted, so we obey.
In our text this week this week, Paul is invited to speak about the Gospel to a powerful politician named Felix. Acts 24:24-25, says Felix invited Paul and "heard him speak about faith in Christ Jesus. And as he reasoned about righteousness and self-control and the coming judgment, Felix was alarmed and said, “Go away for the present." Felix understood that if the Gospel is true, then he needs to make some massive lifestyle changes. This "alarmed him."
Join us Sunday, as we hear the alarming truth.
