Stop Banging on Closed Doors

January 31, 2021

Series: Acts 2021

The pandemic has forced many changes and forced many of us to change directions in big and small ways.

What if God has purposely closed off some opportunities to get us to move in a different direction?

Maybe it’s time to stop banging on closed doors and to start asking, “What does this now make possible?”

In fact, this is exactly the pattern we see in the Book of Acts:

God uses larger circumstances to move the church into new ground.

The first wave of nasty persecution that breaks out is used by God to move the church to minister to new people in new places.
