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 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 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.

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 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.

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...]
