We're Not Out Of Our Minds! – Highlights

November 6, 2022 • Jay Hardwick • Acts 26

We can learn a lot from the way Paul shares his testimony before King Agrippa in Acts chapter 26. Even in front of an audience that claims he is "out of his mind," his passion and the strength of his faith and conviction are evident. Sometimes we can find ourselves in a situation where the world thinks we are out of our minds to believe and share the gospel, but in reality we are out of our minds if we don't!
