What made Peter's sermon so powerful that it "cut to the heart" the very people who crucified Christ? What gave him such boldness to say, "This Jesus, whom you crucified?"

February 5 was Vision Sunday at PCC. A vision is the ability to see what could, what should be and what, by God's grace, will be. In this message, Rick Keller shares the interesting process of how an arrow is made.
He uses Hebrews 12:12-13 and Isaiah 49:2 to show how God works a process in us so that He can use our lives to His glory. Why has God placed prayer like He is doing in our Church? Why does He allow us to go through difficult experiences? Rick shows us how it is all a part of God's plan to release us, like an arrow being launched from a bow.

What do you do when God answers your prayer in a way that you did not expect or even desire?
When God told Habakkuk in chapter 1 how He was going to raise up the Chaldeans to capture Israel, Habakkuk was devastated. He could not reconcile God's actions with God's character. Have you ever been there? Have you been in situations where you knew God could have intervened or changed His mind, but He didn't?

Habakkuk is an Old Testament Prophet, whose name means, "To Embrace." The Book of Habakkuk teaches us how to embrace the Sovereignty and wisdom of God.
Habakkuk is a comforting book because it is a dialogue between God and man. Habakkuk has complaints against the Lord and he asks God hard questions. Questions that most of us ask along the road to spiritual maturity.
Habakkuk asks the Lord how He can be just yet allow injustice? How can he be silent when Habakkuk is crying out to Him? How can God have pure eyes yet look at evil?
These are questions people are still asking today and we find the answers in the 3 short chapters of Habakkuk.
It is a special book and we are glad you are beginning this journey with us in Habakkuk 1 entitled, "Wonder & Worry."
