Several years ago, I had my interest piqued concerning the book of Acts due to a message I heard preached in a conference setting. The focus of the message was concerned with the principles that were found in the book of Acts concerning how the Church was to function and operate. So I purchased a small notebook and begin to read through the book of Acts in sort of a devotional/expositional approach with the main question being...

Acts - Life In The Spirit 2

Acts 1:1-11

Somewhere in the neighborhood of forty days ago at this point in Acts, the disciples had heard the words of Jesus that extends even to this generation of disciples in our day. Go and teach the nations. Baptize them. Teach the commandments. Evangelize the world. It is with this emphasis from... [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 4

Acts 1:1-3

Acts - Life In The Spirit 5

Acts 1:1-3

Just in case you may be wondering, solid, principled biblical preaching is hard work. Sermons and Bible studies do not just happen because a man decides that he wants to put a “lecture” of sorts of together. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 6

Acts 1:1-3

It is important to understand that when Peter stood to preach on the day of Pentecost that he had been filled with the Spirit. This gave boldness to his actions and there was an abiding authority that had not been present prior to Pentecost. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 7

Acts 1:1-3

This passage is a foundation point for the apostolic church both then and now. When the people who heard Peter’s sermon and felt the force of the convicting work of the Holy Ghost, they asked the most important question of all: What shall we do? [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 8

Acts 1:1-3

Steadfastness is a very desirable trait to have in our lives. We live in a very unstable world that seems as if it is changing every hour of the day. The church must resist the urge to adapt to every new fad that comes down the pike and it needs to remain steadfast in its service to God. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 9

Acts 1:1-3

We now come to the first recorded miracle of the young church. There are empowering gifts that come to a true apostolic church and although miracles, signs, and wonders are not to be the focus of the apostolic church, you will find them to be manifested throughout the church. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 10

Acts 1:1-3

This passage opens immediately after the miracle of the lame man. Peter now preaches his second sermon to those who had gathered at Solomon’s porch. Josephus mentions a porch in his writings that was associated with Herod’s Temple. Solomon worked at great cost on the other three sides of the Temple by filling up and leveling the area so the walls of the Temple could be built. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 11

Acts 1:1-3

Repentance is two-fold in its directions. The negative aspect of it means to turn away from the sin that captures all of man. The positive side of repentance means that we will have to turn toward God and away from the sin whether it is of thought or of action. [ read more...]

Peter and John did not attempt to organize the early believers into a political alliance to thwart the efforts of their persecutors. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 15

Acts 1:1-3

Immediately following the introduction of Barnabas, we find one of the most chilling stories found in the book of Acts and for that matter throughout the whole Bible. It is the story of Ananias and Sapphira. It is the New Testament equivalent to the story of Achan in the Old Testament. It shows what takes place when there is sin in the church. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 16

Acts 1:1-3

When God moves about and starts working in the lives of men, specifically with the action of salvation, there are at least two components that motivate His actions. His grace and His judgment are actively working to move man back into the proper relationship that sin has destroyed. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 17

Acts 1:1-3

Since we are looking at the apostolic principles from the book of Acts, we find another principle being reiterated. Persecution fosters church growth! We saw a hint of it in Acts 2 when Peter preached and had to endure the ridicule of the crowd in Jerusalem. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 18

Acts 1:1-3

The will of God can be specific to each of us. It is a matter that exists between us and God and at first it may seem like we do not know which way to take. Many young men and women do not know specifically what path to take initially in life. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 19

Acts 1:1-3

As for the actual recognition of when the church came into existence, all conservative biblical scholars point to Acts 2 in the upper room. From that point on, the actions of the church begin to give it an order which is seen throughout the flow of the New Testament that can help us to see what it is to do. [ read more...]

Acts - Life In The Spirit 20

Acts 1:1-3

Before moving into the character study of Stephen, it is beneficial to look a little more deeply at one of the Scripturally designated offices of the church. Stephen was fulfilling the role of a deacon although he is never identified as such in the Bible. [ read more...]

Image for series A Man Of Macedonia

A Man Of Macedonia

Alexander the Great was from Macedonia and went on a military campaign where he and his armies conquered most of the known world at the time.

His home town of Macedonia thought of him as a son of Zeus; the priests in Jerusalem didn’t declare him to be God, but they did tell him that he was the fulfillment of the prophecy in Daniel 8; the Egyptians did declare him to be Pharaoh and the son of the god Amun; there are some who even think that he influenced the development of Buddhism.

Image for series You Matter

You Matter

People Matter. They matter to God and they should matter to us. One of the biggest hindrances to growth in any church is the general lack of compassion for other people. We easily find reason to dismiss someone from being someone we would introduce to Jesus due to how they look or what our impression of them is. However, They Matter. Just how they are at this very moment. This series will help your church to understand the urgent need to love people and to embrace them regardless of where they are at in their life. Without this, people will remain lost and our churches will not grow. [ read more... ]
