Acts 2:1-4 The Coming of the Holy Spirit 2 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing…

Through Many Tribulations

•We are born into a troubled world. •Pain, sickness and death cannot be avoided. •Trust in people gets thin sometimes. •Setbacks: Home, School, Work… can put our dreams far into the distant future. Acts 14:22 22 strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, “Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.”

On Our Way Home

We are travelling on this journey with the people around us. The journey begins, there is no day like it. Our journey begins the day we were baptised. You can get distracted, remain focused. Acts 8:39 39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch no longer saw him, [a]but went on his way rejoicing. Matthew 7:13-14 13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad…

God is the Giver

Acts 20:35 35 I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”

Be Sober – First Thoughts⦁ Not Drunk? ⦁ Sombre? ⦁ Serious? ⦁ Sensible? ⦁ The Sober-minded Christian⦁ Self-controlled⦁ Clear-headed⦁ Watchful— ⦁ God expects the Christian to know what is:⦁ Happening around them.⦁ Coming in the end.

It is only from him that comes “Times of Refreshing.” Acts 3:19 (NASB) 19 Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;

The Truth About Baptism

•The truth is that Baptism: •Is a contentious subject •Causes confusion and division •Its meaning and method has changed •Christians would rather not talk about its deeper meaning. Acts 22:16 (NASB) 16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.’

Generousity – Staring in the Heart of God-Acts 17:25-28

God’s generousity is not about you, Acts 17:25-28 (NASB) 25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;28 for in Him we live…
