The early church threatened everything. Its followers did not set out to overturn the religious, political, economic, or moral standards of society. They set out to bear witness to Jesus as Lord. Their loyalty to the risen and ascended king, however, made them dangerous because neither lobbyists, legalists, nor morally lax crowds could persuade them to shut up and stop loving others in Jesus's name. The modern day church could learn a few lessons from their fearless proclamation of Jesus is Lord.

Health things grow. This includes people and plants and local churches. Growth is not simply a numbers game, but it includes spiritual depth, as well. The book of Acts records dramatic growth of the church, showing the partnership between God and his people who were committed to spreading His word.

The Holy Spirit is shrouded in mystery and misunderstanding. We know what the Spirit does; we don't always know how the He works. Bu the book of Acts records his falling, fitting, filling, fortifying, and focusing of the early church. There is no church without the Spirit.

Jesus is the cornerstone to the church. When Luke wrote his gospel account and sequel (Acts), he wanted his readers to be convinced of Jesus' works and committed to his work. In our skeptical and busy age, the need for conviction and commitment remain relevant. This sermon traces six key aspects of Jesus' ministry so church members better know their Savior, Messiah, and Lord.

Stigmas make us stand out. Some of them are self-inflicted. Others cling to us from birth. While stigmas may lead to opposition, rejection, or mistreatment from society, God can open doors through stigmas. The story of Jephthah, an ancient Israelite leader, tells such a story. God uses his strength and diplomacy to deliver his people who had earlier rejected him. What doors has God opened for you?

We all have knowledge. Boatloads. At our fingertips. But disparate facts and unlimited access to information does not make us wise. Wisdom, in its biblical sense, is knowledge that works and aligns with God's will. God, the All-wise One, is its source. And he gives of it generously, if we would just learn to slow down and heed Him.

The apostle Paul knew something of God's compassion. It shaped his past, empowered his present ministry, and reached all people. When he describes God's compassion (i.e., mercy, kindness) to Paul, he assumes Timothy, too, will take it and pay it forward. And so should we.

As children we learn to sing "Our God is so big. Our God is so mighty. There's nothing our God cannot do." Then we grow up and face suffering. Suddenly God seems small, impotent, uncaring. The story of Job reminds us of how big God is even in the face of our suffering.

Our struggles reveal our need for salvation. In some form or another, we all want freedom, release, salvation. While we cannot secure it for ourselves, we can turn to God, our Redeemer. The exodus story not only shows his redeeming power but establishes his people as his prized possession

Passage: John 8:12-59
Series: God 101
Duration: 43 mins 25 secs
God is our Father. Jesus knew Him intimately and eternally as such. Thus we allow him to define the terms of fatherhood. While this is hard for those who have distant, abusive, or deceased fathers, we cannot avoid the metaphor. And when we understand all that is wrapped into the fatherhood of God, we cannot help but feel cared for by Him.
