THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE POWER OF GOD
Acts 4:32-5:16

Many Christians seem to be in search of the perfect Church.  Of course, what constitutes a perfect Church will vary from person to person.  Some want great singing and short sermons.  Some want great sermons and little singing.  Some want children’s ministry or youth ministry or young adult ministry or young at heart ministry.  Some want many programs others want no programs.  Some want more pot-lucks and others want less.  Some like blue carpet and others like it green.  Everyone seems to be looking for the perfect combination of what they want so that they can attend the perfect Church.  But the old joke is true: if we ever found the perfect Church we could not join it because then it would no longer be perfect.

Acts 4:1-31: No Other Name Print E-mail

Jesus is the greatest name in all the earth.  There is no greater name than the name of Jesus.  People may not honor His name now, but there is coming a Day when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess the name of Jesus (Philippians 2:9-11).  There is no other name like His Name.  And the reason His name is so great is because of what He did for us while on the earth.  He humbled Himself and became man, He perfectly obeyed the Father’s will, He gave Himself in our place at the cross, securing the redemption of all who call on His name, and He rose victorious from the grave and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.  When we speak of His name we are talking about all that He has done to redeem a people for Himself.  There is no other name like His because there is no other Savior like Him!

Acts 3:1-26: From the Miracle to the Message Print E-mail

I believe in the miraculous.  I believe the Lord held back the waters for Israel to cross the Red Sea.  I believe Elisha made an axe head float (2 Kings 6).  I believe Jonah spent a few nights in the belly of a fish before being spit out on dry ground.  I believe God came in the flesh.  I believe Jesus walked on water, calmed the storms, fed thousands, healed the sick, and raised the dead.  I believe that God has done all these things and more.  Yet, have you ever wondered why God does these things?  What is the purpose of miracles?  We could give several biblical answers to this question: they bring glory to God, they bring good to God’s people, they attest that a person is truly of God, they cause others to marvel at God and His power.  All of these are reasons why God uses miracles.

Imagine with me if a person who had never heard of Christianity, never heard of the gospel and what Jesus did through His death and resurrection, never been to Church, never been around believers, was here this morning.  Let’s call him Joe.  If Joe sat beside you through our corporate worship, what would he observe?  If he went home with you and spent this week watching you and your family, what would he see?  If he spent the next few weeks coming to Church and watching you and the rest of us, how would Joe describe the followers of Christ?

“The Church without the Spirit is dead,” writes John Stott.  He explains: “There can be no life without the life-giver, no understanding without the Spirit of truth, no fellowship without the unity of the Spirit, no Christlikeness of character apart from his fruit, and no effective witness without his power.  As a body without breath is a corpse, so the Church without the Spirit is dead.” 1  There is no mission, no forgiveness of sins, no salvation, no body of believers, apart from the power of the Holy Spirit.  The life we have in Christ comes from Him.

Acts 1:1-26: The Call to Act Print E-mail

Download (right-click) or Listen Now

The Lord has saved us to action.  The call of Christ is not to ‘sit on the sidelines’ while others do the work.  It is not to be lazy or comfortable or easy.  It is a call to take up your cross daily.  It is a call to go to the hard people and the hard places with nothing but a cup of cold water and the love of Christ.  It is a call to get off of our couches and out of our comfort zones, a call to risk it all, a call to live for only one glorious goal: the spread of the glory of God through the proclamation of the gospel.  It is a call to preach the gospel and see thousands saved in one day.  It is a call to keep preaching the gospel even after been imprisoned and beaten.  It is a call to give up everything you thought you knew as true and join the ones you were trying to silence.  It is a call to bold proclamation and fervent prayers.  It is a call for Jews and Gentiles, men and women, educated and uneducated, slave and free.  It is a call to take good news to High Priests and Ethiopian Eunuchs and Roman Rulers.  It is a call to give your all for the glory of the Risen Christ.  This is the call that Jesus has placed on the lives of His followers.
