Sermon November 12, 2017: Power – Ignition

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “Power – Ignition” and his scripture reference is Acts 6:9 – 7:60. Listen and follow along:

Those “in authority” decided…

…to ignore their best advice to themselves.

Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” (Gamaliel) (Acts 5:38-39)

…to go to their old playbook.

…to choose the wrong target.

All who were sitting in the Sanhedrin looked intently at Stephen, and they saw that his face was like the face of an angel. (Acts 6:15)

…to hear out their enemy.

You stiff-necked people! Your hearts and ears are still uncircumcised. You are just like your ancestors: You always resist the Holy Spirit! 

Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One.

And now you have betrayed and murdered him — you who have received the law that was given through angels but have not obeyed it.” (Acts 7:51-53)

Sermon November 5, 2017: Power – Realignment


Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “Power – Realignment” and his scripture reference is Acts 6:1-7. Listen and follow along:

  1. The first culture clash and significant conflict.
  2. The Apostles decide this is too much for them to handle alone.
  3. The Apostles handed the choosing of leaders to handle these matters over to the disciples.
  4. These new leaders were “commissioned” and the Church continued to prosper.
    • The church is still and always will be dependent on each one doing their part.

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. (Ephesians 4:15-16)

Sermon October 29, 2017: Power – Great Grace and Greed

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “Power – Great Grace and Greed” and his scripture reference is Acts 4:32-5:11. Listen and follow along:

Great grace requires great favor.

Great grace creates great sacrifice.

Great greed comes from insincerity and hypocrisy.

You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue, you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
(Psalms 139:1-7)

Great greed brings great consequences.

God may be calling you to make a great sacrifice/gift.

God may be warning you to not mess with His church.

Sermon October 15, 2017: Power – Offensive Power

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “Power – Offensive Power” and his scripture reference is Acts 4:1-22. Listen and follow along:

The Message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and

The Power of the Spirit Offends.

That the cowering wimp had become a bold proclaimer.

Those in authority found out they were not.

The leader’s belief system filtered out recent and past evidence.

It was difficult to punish this “offense”.

The biggest offensive charge against the Gospel of Jesus is exclusivity.

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. (2 Corinthians 1:21b-22)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. (Eph. 4:31)

Today Pastor Dan’s message is titled “Power – Fuel For The Fire” and his scripture reference is Acts 2:42-47. Listen and follow along:

The Experience wasn’t Enough

  1. The Apostles teaching…
    • Learning from the first hand witnesses…
    • Learning from the scripture…
      But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you. You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. (2 Timothy 3:14-17, NLT)

  2. Fellowship
  3. Giving
  4. Gathering and Prayer
    It was….
    infectious,
    powerful
    and contagious…

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 4:10-11a)

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. (Romans 12:6-8)
