Acts: Did You Receive The Holy Spirit?
Acts 19:1-7 The life of a disciple of Christ is supposed to be characterized by the work of the Holy Spirit indwelling us and continuing to be filled.

Acts: The Power of God & The People of God
Acts 18:1-17 Trusting God more and loving God more will dispel our fears.

Acts 18:9-10 “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.”

Acts: Deep Dark Dungeon Worship Part 2
Acts 16 Be the light of the world even in the darkest or most challenging of times. This light can help guide those who are lost to Jesus.

Acts 12:1-11 The Bible calls on us to pray fervently and to believe in the power of prayer.

If we don't call upon the Lord, He has promised nothing-nothing at all. It's as simple as that. No matter what I preach or what we claim to believe in our heads, the future will depend upon our times of prayer." Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala

Sent Part II
Our goal in spending a couple of weeks on this is to recapture a consciousness of our sentness (if that's a word). We want to be the church that Jesus intended His Church to be…And Jesus intended His Church to be on mission = (Jhn 20:21)“…As the Father has sent Me, I also send you."(Mat 28:19)"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

After (Matt 12) and the Nation Rejection of Jesus as the Messiah… we saw a distinct change in Jesus’ ministry. It went from having it’s main focus being Jesus giving evidence of Himself as the Messiah to the Nation of Israel, and teaching and preaching for that purpose.Now shifting, and having the main focus be on the training of His disciples, and preparing them to be sent out and carry on ministry after His ascension. We look at what it means to be a sent people. Sent by Jesus on mission.

As Christians, sometimes we tend to focus on what not to do and what's going wrong. Today we focus on Praising God for the New Life that Christ has given us.

Satan, Demons, and Spiritual Warfare Q&A
Jesus sent out 70 of his disciples…(Luk 10:17)The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name."(Luk 10:18)And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.(Luk 10:19)"Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.(Luk 10:20)"Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven." And there is a great danger in becoming overly focused on demonic stuff (there are entire ministries & churches that their main focus seems to be fixated with the demonic).Our focus should always be on Jesus.

Healing The Gerasene Demoniac
We come to one of the wildest and freakiest stories in the Bible. I think this is the most descriptive picture of a demonized person in scripture. In the other accounts… we are mostly told that Jesus just cast the demon out… And maybe we’re given 1 or 2 affects of having a demon (i.e. mute or blind). But here we are given a far more descriptive account. And this is an extreme case of someone being demonized…

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand,by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the thrd day according to the Scriptures,and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.After that He appeard to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep;then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles;and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeard to me also.-1Cr 15

Palm Sunday and Triumphal Entry
Theologically, it was the official presentation of the Messiah to the Nation of Israel. Prophetically, this was the fulfillment of prophecy. Both in the way that it happened, and even down to the ery day that it happened. Spiritually, this is the Messiah on his way to redeem humanity.

One Another As A Core Value

Love Not The World
Ashton McNab teaches out of 1 John 2 :15-17 about loving God, not the world. "If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world." - C.S. Lewis

God Is Light
"The Christian is joyful not because he is blind to injustice and suffering, but because he is convinced that these, in the light of Divine Sovereignty, are never ultimate. The humor of the christian is not a way of denying the tears but rather a way of affirming something that is deeper than tears." -Elton Trueblood

God Is Love
“ A spiritual and saving knowledge of God is the greatest need of every human creature.” Jeremiah 9:23&24 says, “ Thus says the Lord, “Let not a wise man boast in his wisdom, and let not the mighty boast of his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises loving kindness, justice, and righteousness on the earth; for I delight in these things declares the Lord.” This morning we are looking one of the Attributes of God – Who He is, His nature, His Character… God is Incomprehensible, God is Self-Existent & Self-Sufficient, God Never Changes, God is Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, God is Sovereign, God is Holy, Faithful, Just… Next week also in 1 John we see that “God is Light” …and we will see this morning in 1 John 4: 7 -21, that “God is Love”… Our view of Him will directly affect how we view everything else.

The Word of God as a Core Value
Our ability to be and do what we are called to, will depend on what we do with God's word. 2nd Timothy 3:16-17 states: All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for corrention, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
