Sermons from July 2022
The Persecution of Man and the Power of God
Text: Acts 8:1–25 Main Idea: Gospel success is not as cut and dry as we would like it to be. Sometimes people respond to the gospel in false belief, foolishly hoping they can receive the benefits of God apart from God himself.
Faithful Gospel Witness in the Face of Opposition
Text: Acts 7:54-8:1 Main Point: Faithful gospel witness in the face of opposition is upheld by the Holy Spirit and approved of by Jesus.
The Devastating Impact of Faithless Familiarity
Text: Acts 6:8-7:60 Main Idea: Israel’s long history reminds us that faithless familiarity with the things of God blinds us to the glory of God and breeds every manner of rebellion.
The Priority of the Word
Text: Acts 6:1-7 Main Idea: The mission of the church requires that it prioritize the preaching of the Word while actively ministering to the physical needs of its members.
Persecution and Paradoxical Joy
Text: Acts 5:12–42 Main Idea: Opposition and persecution cannot stop the advance of the gospel; rather they unwittingly reveal the active power of Jesus in the persevering faithfulness of his blood-bought people.
