How do Christians Rob Themselves of God’s Power for Their Lives?

This week Pastor Dallas shares about how faking spirituality robs you of God’s power for your life.

Robbing Power (Acts 4:325:16) Have you ever wondered if something was too good to be true? That lingering question could be a realization of problems hidden under the surface. On the other hand, that lingering question could be robbing an actually good thing of its power for you. This week, we read the tragic story of Ananias and Sapphira, who tried to fake it like they were all in with the early church. Join us as we discuss the power of authenticity.

Series: Empowered Have you ever felt powerless? Have news stories about the problems of the world disheartened you because there doesn’t seem to be anything you can do about it? Powerless is not how God describes us or created us.

Jesus told his disciples that God would give us power and then the disciples lives were forever changed. Exploring stories of power in the book of Acts, we’ll describe how God wants to empower you to be a changemaker in the world today.
