Sermon 6 from Life in the Church of Acts by Dr. Steven D. Bruns.
This riot occurred because the citizens of Ephesus could not argue against the Gospel message. It was not so much the logic of the argument, but the transformed lives of the Christians that were the death-knell for the idol makers. In everything, we must remember that if Christ is not changing our lives, we are not the kind of Christians we need to be. It is an ever-changing process in our lives, and it is something that cannot be argued against by a hostile world.
