"God's Choice, God's Work," Rev. R. Scott MacLaren, First OPC Perkasie PA

The journeys of the Apostle Paul would make for a great National Geographic Special, following him from the malarial low lands of Phrygia in modern day Turkey, through bandit infested roads, to the highlands of Antioch in Pisidia. What fortitude it must have taken to make that journey while possibly suffering from malaria. Yet, through his sufferings and perilous travels, Paul brought a powerful message of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. Paul was not like some who manipulate the emotions of their audience with tearful stories and loud declamations. He spoke a high and challenging message of God's sovereign choice of a people for himself, followed by effective action in bringing salvation to them.Watch as Pastor MacLaren shows from Acts 13 how God's Choice determines God's Work in this sermon preached at First Presbyterian Church in Perkasie, Pennsylvania on August 31, 2014. First Church is a member of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. The Rev. Richard Scott MacLaren is the pastor.
