Paul spoke to the Jewish leaders of the Hope of Israel: the Kingdom of God manifested in the resurrection of Christ. As with all Paul's preaching to the Jews, some believed the message of faith in Jesus and others did not (Acts 28:24). God's Word cannot be put under arrest. Likewise the gospel in our time will ultimately succeed. Acts ends with the gospel witness spreading from Rome, and today the power of the gospel is operative in Toronto.
Our sphere as the church has largely been that of a child; we've retreated from one area of life to another, leaving law, politics, education, etc. to the influence of godless people. Toronto is God's city because all authority in heaven and earth belongs to Christ
The Psalms give voice to the believer's cries to God. Following David's sin, his sons subsequently rebelled, forcing David to flee to the wilderness where he writes Psalms 3 and 63. Under affliction, David's soul is thirsting for God Himself. The Psalms celebrate God's loyal, faithful, enduring love. We need to set aside time to remember God's steadfast love demonstrated to us in the cross. As we cling to God we gain confidence, so we can then offer confidence to those who come to us.
