Pastor Rod teaches in Acts chapter 17, verse 1b-2 "Paul and Silas went to Thessalonica, where there was a Jewish synagogue. Paul, as his custom was, went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures". Pastor Rod asks the question if we are using our Bible as a daily tool? Are we letting our Bible collect dust? Let us fill up on God's Amazing Word. Let us be ready. 1 Peter 3:15 But in your heats set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. Let God's Word transform you. Proverbs 4:20-22, "My son, pay attention to what I say: listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body."

Pastor Rod teaches in 1 Kings 12, where we see the divide of the kingdom of Israel. In this story we see Rehoboam and Jeroboam listen to horrible and ungodly advise. Jeroboam, out of fear and for the sake of convenience, made false gods for the people to worship. In this chapter we see the importance of seeking godly counsel, and to remember that convenience isn't always right.

Pastor Rod explains how Paul and Silas didn't go to jail for the Gospel and then whine about it; they made the most of their time and brought the Gospel to those in prison, even to their Jailer. This story is an example of how when you live for the Lord, you don't have to make up ways to share the Gospel!

Pastor Rod continues his teaching on Paul and Silas's journey. Coming across Lydia and her conversion and baptism through bad times, we learn that earthly expectations often disappoint us. Scripture teaches us that God promises our needs instead. Don't let earthly expectations steal your joy (Ezra 3:12-13). God is looking for people who are faithful even in the insignificant. Always be listening, always be learning, and allow God to be involved to open your heart.

Pastor Rod teaches in 1 Kings 11, where we see king Solomon's heart turn from the Lord as his wives turn his heart after their false gods. As a result, the kingdom was divided. We must take heed that we don't allow other things take our heart away from God.

Pastor Rod speaks in Chapter 16 about the importance of moving forward with the Holy Spirit. Timothy joins Paul and Silas on the journey to share the gospel. As the disciples we want to build God's Kingdom. We want to minister to others out of love for God's Glory. Be willing to listen when God whispers. Be willing to give up whatever in order to be used for greater work. Be ready, moving, serving for God. He will get you where He wants you to go.

Pastor Rod teaches in 1 Kings 8, where we see the dedication of the temple in Jerusalem. After Solomon prays to the Lord, giving Him praise for His faithfulness to His Word, he also prays for the people of Israel. When Solomon has finished dedicating the temple, the people go to their tents full of joy and a glad heart. Worship leads to joy. Let us be filled with joy as we come before the Lord's presence and worship Him.

Pastor Rod taught that like believers in the the early church, we carry a lot of baggage into a relationship with God. But, as the early church leaders explained, when we have a right relationship with God, the rest follows.
