Take It To The Streets

Acts 1:8-8

Topics: Evangelism

The whole key to the Book of Acts is taking the Gospel to where the people really are. The Book of Acts is a vivid portrayal of taking the gospel to the streets. The Gospels show the Life of Christ but Acts shows us how the early Christians lived out the teachings of Jesus Christ and what they did with the Great Commission and with the baptism of the Holy Spirit that they received.

God of this City - Lord of this Nation

Acts 18:9-11
Topic: Evangelism
If asked to describe your city in one to three words, what would quickly come to mind? Swarming streets, tedious traffic, soiled slums, soaring skyscrapers, boulevard beggars and constant commotion begin the list. Then there is polluted air, sleepless, exciting nightlife, trade centers, unorganized, mindless, energetic, enormous, sprawling, materialistic, industrious, historic, noisy, primitive, advanced, modern, interesting, smoky, breathtaking, magnificent, hot, humid and on and on. Surely, a list of good and bad, negative and positive would speedily be generated. There is: lost, unreached, dark, hopeless, desperate, unpromising, worldly, and wicked to add. Did I mention sinful? Doesn’t it cause your heart to sink, feel sick and sad? But, there is hope. [ read more... ]

The Prodigals are Coming Home!

Acts 20:29-31
Topic: Revival
This lesson focuses on those that have heard the gospel before and have, at one time or another, walked in truth. But, for some reason, have walked or strayed away from it. Some slip, slide, or skid to the fringes of the Apostolic movement and don’t even recognize their risky state. They are commonly referred to as ‘prodigals’ or ‘backsliders.’ Neither word seems to be explicitly found in the King James Version of the Bible. However, both are unmistakably referenced there.

Acts 2:40-40

Keep Sowing until Church Growth Happens

Acts 2:42-47
Topic: Revival
You have the same choice as the frogs. You can either give up or continue in steadfast perseverance until God moves in your situation. I am sure each of us yearns to see our churches grow. Sometimes we feel hopeless and inadequate because we know church growth cannot be produced by man. We understand that anything with eternal value will be accomplished by God. It is only God who can breathe on a valley of dry bones and cause them to come back to life. It is only God who can cause revival, church growth, and hearts to be receptive to Him. [ read more... ]

Listening to the Voice of God

Acts 20:27-27
Topic: General
What comes to mind when you think of pastors, evangelists and Bible teachers? These are people who preach and teach the Word of God. Being a man of God is not just about preaching or speaking. In order to speak, “Thus saith the Lord” the preacher must first listen to God. It is a big problem when preachers do not take time to hear God’s voice. What a tragedy when they speak what people want to hear instead of what God directs. [ read more... ]

Look At Us! Ministering With Boldness

Acts 3:4-4
Topic: Leadership
At Pentecost Peter stood up in boldness to proclaim what was taking place. What a difference this was to just a few days earlier denying he even knew Jesus Christ. Following this, we see the disciples possessing faith, power, and boldness. We see them being used in the healing of the lame man at the Gate Beautiful in Acts Chapter 3. Here we also see the Gifts of the Spirit starting to be used. In this lesson we will deal with the boldness displayed by Peter and John. It is this boldness that causes us to wake up the spiritual gifts wanting to operate through us and causes us to press forward even in the face of opposition, persecution, and problems. We realize, “no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper” (Isaiah 54:17). [ read more... ]

Mighty In The Scriptures

Acts 18:24-25
Topic: Doctrine
Acts Chapter 18 opens with an interesting testimony of a man called Apollos. In the opening verses we read of a man who was eloquent, mighty in the Scriptures, and received instruction. He also taught and preached what he knew. Beyond the descriptive phrases written about Apollos, we see a further hidden quality in his walk with God. This begins with “knowing only the baptism of John.”(18: 25) Apollos was a sincere man who was walking in every light of the Scripture that he had received. There was a longing in his spirit to obey all of what God had in store for him. His understanding of the Word of God and the things of God, led him to accept John’s baptism. [ read more... ]

The Apostle Paul realized that Satan would raise up false teachers from even within the church who would bring in false teachings, doctrine, pagan practices, worldly ideas, and man-made trends. They are like dangerous animals attacking the church and are difficult to handle. They are like wolves that wish to attack and kill the sheep. We, as leaders, must be very careful to make sure that such wolves will not enter and destroy any of the flock of God. We must guard the truth! [ read more... ]

Realizing that there was a great cause (I Samuel 17:29), he fights and defeats the giant. This great feat was done with a slingshot and just one smooth stone.
