Men's Bible Study with Brad Randall
Wednesday Evenings at 6 PM
Disturbing the Peace
October 20, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 4:17–21, Acts 4:1–4, Acts 4:13, Acts 4:14–16
Jesus interrupts life! This isn’t a bad thing, but when He calls us to follow Him it disturbs our old life for a much better one. The Prince of Peace simultaneously brings disruption. In Acts 4, the Gospel of Jesus annoyed religious rulers who were trying to put a stop to the mention of His Name. But, for those that belong to Jesus, we have a purpose to make the Name of Jesus great with our lives and known to others.
October 6, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 3:11–26
Life is full of opportunities. Some we miss out on and some we have gratefully taken advantage of. In Acts 3, when a crowd gathered, Peter & John saw an opportunity to share the Gospel. May God help us to see the opportunities that He gifts us with to share the God News of Jesus with others. (Audio issues happen 17 minutes into the study due to technical issue)
September 29, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 3:1–10
The salvation that God offers is greater than anything we could even think to ask. When the lame man asked Peter and John for money, in the Name of Jesus, they gave him the ability to walk for the first time in his life. We truly have something better to offer. Everything the world offers is temporary, cheap, and useless. However, what the Kingdom of God offers is eternally valuable.
September 15, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 2:41–46
There are many ways we could describe the early church, but one clear characteristic of these new believers is DEVOTED! Acts 2:42 tells us that they had their heart set on the teaching of God’s Word, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer. This isn’t meant to be unique to them alone. These four disciplines are for every follower of Christ. They helped the early church grow in spiritual maturity and they help us mature our faith as well.
The Clear Gospel
September 8, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 2:14–41
When the Spirit of God came upon the disciples and tongues of fire broke out throughout Jerusalem, it left the city amazed by God’s power, but still confused about what took place. But, the Apostle Peter cleared the confusion by preaching the clear Gospel. The Good News of Jesus may be difficult to embrace for some, but it’s not difficult to understand. When they heard the clear Gospel, they were “cut to the heart” and the Church exponentially grew like it had never experienced before.
Arrival of the Holy Spirit
September 1, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 2:1–13
There are certain stories in the Bible that we would have loved to witness firsthand. The arrival of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2 is certainly one of those moments. Not only was it amazing, but it was a fulfillment of prophecy for the Church. Unlike the birth of Jesus, this moment wasn’t quiet and peaceful. It drew great attention from everyone in Jerusalem. They truly witnessed a miracle of the power of God as He made clear the truth of the Gospel.
A Worthy Church
August 25, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 1:12–26
What does it take to be a church that is worthy and one that is ready to glorify God. This week reveals that there were 120 believers that were waiting for the Holy Spirit to come to them in Jerusalem. Even though they were diverse, they found themselves united in their faith. They were devoted to each other and they were devoted to prayer with each other. These attributes reveal a people of God prepared for God’s work.
Am I A Witness?
August 18, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 1:1–11
Like the Great Commission, Acts 1:8 is one of the pinnacle passages for believers. It reveals a purpose for us and who we are in Christ. We are witness of the Gospel of Jesus. With our life, we testify not only what we have seen, but what we have experienced. We share in Jesus's resurrection and we testify to the Spirit of God living in us. It's not just for those like us or those who live around us. Acts 1:8 reveals that this testimony is for the whole world to experience.
God's Plan and His People - Introduction to Acts
August 11, 2021 • Brad Randall • Acts 1:1–5
We are beginning a study on the Book of Acts, which was written by Luke. Acts gives us a glimpse of the first few decades of what we know as the modern Church. Acts is meant for us to see our calling to take on the mission of God and continue the ministry of Jesus after His death, resurrection, and ascension into Heaven.
Celebrating Our Deliverance
May 19, 2021 • Brad Randall
Who doesn’t like to celebrate? Of course, we all enjoy getting together to celebrate someone or maybe a certain date or moment. Purim became the celebration of Israel’s deliverance from the hand of Haman and it's still a part of the Jewish heritage today. God delivered His people! As we study Purim, we're reminded of the importance of Christmas and Easter. God made a way for deliverance for all of mankind and it is more than worthy of a celebration!

The Reward is Coming
May 5, 2021 • Brad Randall
Everyone knows what it’s like to patiently and anxiously wait on something. The Book of Esther tells about Mordecai helping to save the life of the king only to be forgotten about, but only for a little while. Eventually, the king was reminded and Mordecai received a great reward. For those that follow Jesus, our reward is greater than we could ever deserve. It is unhindered presence and glory of God for eternity! Recorded live on May 5, 2021 at 6:30 PM
Holy Hunger for God
April 28, 2021 • Brad Randall
Esther, Mordecai, and the entire nation of Israel was in danger. Action was needed in order for their lives to be saved and they immediately took the right step. Before they went to man, they went to God with fasting and prayer! This is an action we are called to as believers as well. Ultimately, fasting and prayer is about knowing God more. However, we also see in God’s Word how God listens to our requests and faithfully answers our cries the way He did in the Book of Esther. Recorded live on April 28, 2021 at 6:30 PM
