A New Name

Sermon Scripture: Acts 11:19-30 Sermon Big Idea:  Believers were first called Christians because Jesus was a common name, but Christ only belongs to one. Acts 11:19 In Antioch, the Gospel was still spreading broad, but narrow. Acts 11:20-24 In Antioch, God’s grace was on the message and the messenger. Acts 11:25-26 In Antioch, discipleship led to a name change. Acts 11:27-30 In Antioch, Christians realized they belonged to a bigger family. Matthew 21:1-11 We look to the cross as a How COVID has affected us

Door or Window?

Sermon Scripture: Acts 11:1-18 Sermon Big Idea:  When God moves we can either be an open door for people to hear the Gospel, or a window in which people can see but never be invited in. Acts 11:1-3 Peter was criticized for being a door to the gentiles to hear the Gospel. Acts 11:4-14 Peter was a window for the Judaizers to see the bigger picture of God’s plan. Acts 11:15-17 Peter dropped the mic by closing the door on How COVID has affected us

Perspective

Sermon Scripture: Acts 9:32-43 Sermon Big Idea:  The power of Jesus is still active through his disciples. Acts 9:32-43 From one perspective, these stories are about the healing of two faithful witnesses. From another perspective, these stories are about Peter following Jesus’ example. From still another perspective, these stories are about a place where God was disobeyed becoming a place where God will be obeyed and proclaimed. Our perspective: God has called us to be faithful servants. God has called How COVID has affected us

Redrawn

Sermon Scripture: Acts 10 Sermon Big Idea:  The Bible is full of lines drawn that God’s people are not supposed to cross.  Jesus redrew the lines but not by changing the message of the Gospel. Acts 10:1-8 The first vision was an affirmation that Cornelius’ prayers were being heard. Acts 10:9-33 The second vision was for Peter, the leader of the church, to open his eyes to a broader audience. Acts 10:34-48 The third vision is God’s vision for all How COVID has affected us

Phase II

Sermon Big Idea:  When it seems as though God is on the run, He is accomplishing what He set out to do. Acts 8:1-3 Sometimes it takes an ending to create a beginning. Acts 8:4-25 The church was scattered, but so was the Gospel. Magic had people amazed, the Gospel had people saved. Acts 8:26-40 The Gospel shared with one was the Gospel shared with a nation. Acts 1:8 The witnesses were on the move by the power of the How COVID has affected us

To Die is Gain

Sermon Scripture: Acts 6:8-7:60 Sermon Big Idea:  Surrendering your life to Jesus means surrendering it ALL. Hebrews 11:35b-40 Acts 6:8-9 Being full of the Holy Spirit doesn’t take you off Satan’s radar. Acts 6:10-15 When people’s beliefs are threatened, they go a long way to defend. Stephen used familiar stories to defend Jesus. Acts 7:51-53 Acts 7:54-60 Many stories like Stephen’s end in tragedy, but the fight goes on. Stories of martyrdom give us a whole new perspective on the How COVID has affected us

Rising to a New Level

Acts 6:1-7 Sermon Big Idea:  While many things need to be addressed in the church, some need to take center stage. Mark 8:15-21 Acts 6:1-7 The church needs servants Those who will serve – 1 Corinthians 12:27-31 Those who will lead servants – 1 Timothy 3:8-13 The church needs elders To pray, study, and teach To Shepherd the flock – 1 Peter 5:1-3 To be examples – Titus 1:5, 1 Timothy 3:1-7 The church needs organization God organized his people How COVID has affected us

What’s The Cause of All This?

Acts 5 Sermon Big Idea:  If something is “of God,” you can’t stop it nor do you want to be the person or people trying to stop it. Ananias and Sapphira tried to deceive God. Acts 4:36-37 Matthew 19:16-22 Proverbs 1:7 Even in fear, many received Jesus. Acts 2:47 2 Corinthians 3:2 A new separation The religious leaders wanted to be relieved of Jesus. Ephesians 6:12 We can’t deceive God or defeat God.  We can fight Him or follow Him.
