Acts: Big Changes

We are at a place in the book of Acts where life and circumstances are changing big time for the Apostle Paul, but there is one thing that isn't changing in his life and that should be the same for you and me. It matters not if we are male or female, young or old, a pastor, mechanic, clerk, or a student. If we are a Christian, it should never change in our lives either.

Sermon discussion topics for parents to use with their children:
  • What does it mean the God made them in His image: male and female?
  • How are they equal, different, and complementary?
  • Masculinity: How could this be defined, what is it, and what is it not?
  • Why are godly men needed in Society, the Church and the Home?
  • How does the gospel help us recover biblical masculinity and femininity?

Acts: Led by the Spirit

How can one humble man, who just wants to tell people the Good News, cause a riot? Well, it happens. The man is Paul, the place is Jerusalem, and the riot is real and mostly deadly. Why? What are people so upset about? Well, it has to do with the liberating power of the gospel. Do we know of this power? Let us investigate this important confrontation in Acts.

Colossians: Realistic Expectations... or... How Not to Be Shocked

Rejoicing and suffering seem to not fit together: but Paul experienced both, as he emphatically expressed to the Colossians, as he took on the inevitable but glorious persecution all Christians must face.

Colossians 1:24-29,1:19-20,2:9-10

    As, therefore, Christ has suffered once in his own person, so he suffers daily in His members, and in this way there are filled up those sufferings which the Father hath appointed for his body by his decree. John Calvin John Calvin's Commentaries On St. Paul's Epistles To The Philippians
    The oftener we are mowed down by you, the more in number we grow; the blood of Christians is seed. Tertullian Apology 50.13
    God hath called you to Christ's side, and the wind is now in Christ's face in this land; and seeing ye are with him, ye cannot expect the lee-side or the sunny side of the brae. Samuel Rutherford The Letters of Samuel Rutherford 1600-1661
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. Jim Elliot The Journals of Jim Elliot
Sermon discussion topics for parents to use with their children:
  • Why is it assumed Christians will suffer persecution?
  • What is Union with Christ and how does that fit into this topic?
  • Why is it important to have realistic expectations about this suffering?
  • How does rejoicing fit with suffering in this text?

You Must Bear Fruit

Jesus probably shocked His listeners by one of His I AM statements when He said He is the True Vine. They would have understood exactly this reference to Messianic prophecy. But comfort comes from abiding in Him, thriving on the nutrients He provides, so we can bear fruit.
