Acts Series – THE UNKNOWN GOD

While the philosophers that participated in the Areopagus were primarily interested in the mental exercise of sharing new ideas this day they would be introduced to a philosophy that would change the world more than any other single philosophy in history, the message of Christ and him crucified.

The Gospel Unchained

We may be so bound in the prison and stocks of circumstances that we cannot do anything other than pray. But being limited to prayer is not a limitation. The opposite is true, prayer is a mighty weapon to defend us in the time of trial.

A Beautiful Mess

What made this doctrinal crisis work out as beautiful as it did was the Church’s AIM.

First, the church in Jerusalem made sure The gospel, was never compromised.
Throughout this debate, the gospel of Christ, the gift of Jesus shed for our sins, the call to repentance, was never compromised. The church understood what people—Jew or Gentile—have to do to be powerfully saved.

This could have been a moment when the gospel of salvation could have been terribly confused, and the church could have divided over doctrinal misunderstandings.
• But the church preserved what Paul would say to the Corinthians in chapter 1, when he said: If anyone pulls the cross out of the gospel in any way, shape, or form, they’re wrong.
• So the gospel of salvation was preserved in this great debate.

Second, they preserved the unity of the body of Christ.
No one walked.
• We don’t hear ourselves well in today’s society.
• We are being so in love with a customized society in which every person wants everything his or her way.
• Whether we’re talking about business and the stores we go to,
• or the clothing we buy,
• or the job we do,
• everybody demands that you do it his or her way.
• If not, they walk.

UNEXPECTED

When we read the stories in the Bible we often fail to recognize just how strange some of them are. We would never use those people, or that situation, or that approach, but God does and will again.

Persecution and the Gospel

The book of Acts opens with the truly amazing account of the exciting expansion of the New Testament Church. However in Chapter five the story begins to change in a way that quickly captures the readers attention. In the beginning the Church enjoyed a session of favor and acceptance, then persecution began to break out that scattered the Church and cost the lives of many.
