This sermon from Acts 3 shows the importance of worshipping together. Worship is a lifestyle. Worship is about sharing Jesus everywhere we go with everyone we come in contact with.
Peter and John worshipped by sharing Jesus and watching the Holy Spirit heal a paralytic. Then, in front of the same people who killed Jesus, they boldly proclaimed Christ. Finally, they REPORTED on the things God had done when they arrived with the other believers. Together, they prayed for boldness, to continue proclaiming Christ even in the face of persecution.

God’s call for the church to be unified is not unique! It’s all through Scripture!
It’s been like that from the beginning. We see it modeled in the early church but it’s still like that today. Church, for a time such as this we need to be unified! We need it now more than ever on what really is foundational and important. On the core of the message and the purpose of what it means to be a Christian.
Church we have a mission!
Whatever the church looks like today… we are still called to have the same heart as the church in the book of Acts!

When Jesus ascended to heaven He told His disciples to wait in Jerusalem until the Promise. They waited. They didn’t know how long or what exactly would happen. They just waited because Jesus commanded them to wait.
What did they do? They prayed together.
We pray for together so the World may know Jesus.

Before in the Old Testament people had to sacrifice lambs, and go to alters, and go to Priests, and do these things in order to make an atonement for their sin. God sent His son, Jesus, to die in our place. A perfect, pure sacrifice so we don’t have to keep sacrificing.
His blood is so powerful it covers all your sins of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And not just your sins but every other person in the world who ever was, is now, and will be to come. That is how powerful the blood of Christ is!

Have you ever had any moments in your life, moments in your faith, where maybe you’ve doubted your salvation? You’ve doubted whether or not you’re going to heaven when you die, whether there is life or death? Have you ever wanted a little extra assurance that you’re going to go to heaven when you die? That’s the first question.
And the second question is like it.
Are you overburdened and do you ever have moments in your life where you look at the world around you and you think to yourself, “Man, it is just too much! There’s just too much going on around me.” Does it feel like the world is just too much?
John talks about that in this passage.
In this sermon we will talk about overcoming the world and we will talk about assurance in our faith, assurance in our salvation.

Love Reveals Reality. Is it possible to love in an unnatural way? The way the read more…

The word “Love” is used 13 times in this passage. In every occurrence what Greek word do you think is used for the word “love”? Phileo? Eros? No. Agape. Agape is used in every instance in this text.
Even in addressing them he uses the word “beloved.” This word means, “dearly loved”. In other words, just in how they’re addressed John’s saying you are dearly loved brothers and sisters. “Dearly loved – Listen to what I say about love.”
What if we saw Christians from other churches as dearly loved. Not saying, “oh they’re from the other church.” But rather, “They are dearly loved children of God.” Do we talk about our brothers and sisters like that?
Other words that can describe this are cherished or admired. We should see each other just like that.

The Word “Test” literally means to examine or prove. It’s literally this idea “to weigh.” We’re going to test it and know it to be true.
Did you know it’s all of our responsibility to know the Gospel is being preached? Not just the preacher.
We have to PROVE it and know our faith has some real reasons behind it. The Bible teaches us it’s our job to test it. To weigh it out.
Here’s why this is important. This world is inhabited by The Evil One. The Evil One is the Father of lies. That’s what Jesus says about the Evil One.

Remember when you went to your room and you slammed the door (gently because you didn’t want your parents to get made). Or you screamed in to your pillow. You were ANGRY! Well what was making you mad? Well it was that brother of mine! I had two brothers. They made me angry all the time!
But why was I really angry? It’s really interesting that God asks the question, “Why are your angry?” But we respond by saying, “I’ll tell you WHO made me angry. And that person has a face and a name.”
So who is it? “Well it’s that husband of mine…” or “It’s that wife of mine…” or “It’s that brother in law of mine…”
So who is it? And why are they making you angry?
God’s calling attention tot he WHY, not the who or the what. Because anger is a secondary emotion. There’s something else going on.
