Acts 6 & 7 are about the life of Stephen.  He was chosen with six others from the new believers to help distribute food.  However he was a bold witness for Christ among the Greek speaking Jews (Hellenists).   That boldness led to his murder and the launch of both persecution on these new believers and the spread of the gospel outside of Jerusalem.  In this message we look at four characteristics of this man of grace, faith, and power.

The concept of the Christian life has degenerated to mean a “good” life. In the second part of chapter 5 we looked at the life of the early church. Their lives and identities were marked by the gospel. In the message we look at four consistent aspects of the gospel life. Persecution, power, persistence and rejoicing.

This week we studied Acts chapter 5. The account of God’s first disciplinary act on his early church. Ananias and Sapphira tried to fool the apostles by bringing a portion of their proceeds and pretending to bring it all. God struck them dead. In this message we’ll look at the heart changed condition of believers and the serious danger that pretending faith is to the church.

The disciples are facing their second crisis. The first was the arrest and crucifixion of Jesus. They scattered afraid at that event. Now 45 days later they are released from prison and when they return to their friends they pray. This text is a prayer that reveals the deep and somewhat new convictions they are now acting on. Those convictions drive them to ask God for more boldness as they return to sharing Christ.

This message is a look at the message that Peter and the apostles proclaim. It might surprise you to find out that it was not a fluffy message about God’s love. It was a message about who Jesus is and an indictment of man followed by a small window of grace. In this message we also looked at a concept called theological drift. The slow movement away from the foundational truths.

In Acts chapter two, the promised Holy Spirit comes just as Jesus said He would. The Holy Spirit rests on the apostles and they begin to speak in a language that everyone hears as their own native language. We look at the message the disciples are a witness of in some detail. So the power comes, the witness begins, and the church explodes onto the scene.
