His Team

Who does Jesus want to include?

Acts 8:1-40

Background: Stephen’s legacy is that the Good News leaves Jerusalem (1-4)

Who does Jesus want to save and include in the Church He is building?    

(1) Jesus wants the despised (5-8 and 14-17)

(2) Jesus wants the deceived (9-13 and 18-25)

(3) Jesus wants the distant (26-40)

Do we want these people on Jesus’ team, and will we help them join? 

Honouring God By Remaining Healthy And Avoiding Hypocrisy

Audio Only

Acts 4:32 – 5:11

Is my church full of hypocrites? Am I one of them?

(1) A God-honouring community (4:32-37), marked by:

– a shared unity (32a)

– unceasing Gospel testimony (33a)

– heartfelt generosity (32b and 34-35) 

(2) A God dishonouring conspiracy (5:1-4 and 7-9)

(3) A God-inflicted penalty (5:5-6 and 10-11)

For the health and holiness of Jesus’ Church, we must shun hypocrisy and pursue honesty.

Waiting Well As The People Of God

What can we learn from the earliest believers about waiting well as God’s people?

(2) The Church waited collectively (13-14)

(3) The Church waited in unity (14a)
