May 26, 2019: Turning the World Upside Down

Rev. Brian Johnson

Series: Church on the MOVE – A Sermon Series on the Book of Acts

Scripture: Acts 17:1-34

The early church was accused of “turning the world upside down.”  Because they upset traditional ways of doing things and invited new people to experience God’s grace and love, they were seen as troublesome and potentially threatening to the religious elite.  Jesus was always about upsetting settled expectations and offering new life to people who were desperate for God’s love.  As the church, we are still called to join in God’s work of “turning the world upside down” – of sharing boundary-breaking love and working for the good of all who are in need.

This Week:

  • Ask God to show you how the world needs to be turned upside down.
  • How is God calling you to “turn the world upside down” and share love in ways that aren’t expected?
  • How is God calling our church to turn Haymarket/Northern Virginia upside down?
