By Greg Laurie
"Those who have turned the world upside down have come here, too" - Acts 17:6
That's what the world had to say when the Christians came to town. "These men who have caused trouble all over the world ...!"
In the pages of the book of Acts, many in the established order thought of believers in Jesus Christ as agitators and troublemakers. The apostle Paul himself seemed to provoke a mini-riot wherever he turned ... spending more time in jail than in church!
But the resurrected Christ was at work in those days, shattering darkness, snapping chains, breaking boundaries, healing broken lives, saving souls from the clutches of Satan and filling the lives of His followers with His mighty Holy Spirit and unparalleled joy.
In this exciting overview of the Book of Acts, Greg Laurie reminds us that our mission as believers has never changed. Today, just as it was 2,000 years ago, those who belong to Christ need to make a seismic impact on their culture ... and turn an upside-down world rightside up!
