Acts Week 22 – “The Religion of the Empire”
In Acts chapter 19, there are two things happening that are also happening in our own day: a fire and a riot. The beginning of the chapter tells about how many people in the city of Ephesus came to know Jesus. They were wholehearted in their desire to follow him, so much so that they burned all of their sorcery books (which were very valuable/expensive at the time). It was clear that they didn’t just believe, they were living out their faith in every aspect of their life.
