"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Acts 25:13-27

In this section of Luke's account, two dignitaries get together for a chest bump. Herod Agrippa comes to town to pay Festus a welcome to the region and Festus wants to get Agrippa's opinion on what to write to Nero when he sends Paul off to Rome. In the middle of all this pageantry, Paul expresses and models a simplicity that is much needed for us today. While the world around us pats itself on the back, how is the Christ follower to respond in a world of selfies and networking to climb the ladder? Join us as we look at the simplicity of Paul in a world of exclusive individualism.
