Acts 19:11-20 Power to Change (Sept 21 2008)


Three stories illustrate in quick succession the effect of faith in Jesus Christ on self, society, and state. Contrasted with the power of God to heal even through clothing, the sons of Sceva are overwhelmed by the demon they tried to cast out in the name of Jesus who did not know them. True power for the Christian life comes through true relationship with Jesus Christ, and when people submit to him the life-change can be immense. In everything, ultimately, the word of God continues to increase and prevail mightily.
