Sermons on Acts
Where is the Church in Jesus life? Good question, since Jesus only says the word twice. But when He talks about the Church, it is very weighty. We need the Church – to grow, to learn, to love each other. The Church needs us – to encourage each other, to help each other. The Church was born in song, it is an act of worship and God blesses us through the Church as we bless others.
How does one live with the presence of God now; now that you are holy, set aside, and meant for a special purpose? Live as you are the temple of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit lives in you!
These final chapters of Acts are a great example of both earthy love for all and heavenly minded devotion. Paul shows us how the Gospel is for all peoples, cultures and times. Because, Jesus is Lord of all!
We all have a powerful tool for the Kingdom of God. Your testimony! Today we look at a history changing statement from Paul on trail. He tells kings that Christianity is true and rational, and prayed that all who hear him might become just like him, except for the chains. Your statement can be just as powerful.
Paul completes his third missionary journey in Jerusalem where he is confronted with all sorts of trouble. In the midst of riot and arrest, Paul keeps a ‘hope filled – Big God’ perspective. Paul takes the opportunity of a riotous crowd to preach the good news of Christ through his testimony.
