When the Church Chooses the Chosen – Acts 6
God is all-knowing (Omniscient). (1 John 3:20; Psalm 139:1-18; John 1; Ephesians 1)
God is everywhere all of the time (Omnipresent). (Isaiah 57:15; Psalm 33: 13-14; Psalm 46:1))
God is all powerful (Omnipotent). (Genesis 1; Romans 8:35-39; Revelation 1:8)
The entire Bible shouts to the human heart
– God loves you
– God desires a personal love relationship with you through Jesus Christ
– God’s will shall be done – walk in His will.
The Church – An organized body of born again Christians who are called out by God to fulfill His will. Let’s look at the early Church today.
