Bible Talks from Acts



Why Are You So Afraid

Preached on January 10, 2021
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 4:35-41

The story of the sea storm in the Gospel of Mark challenges us to recognise Jesus for who he really is and call us to respond: either in fear, or faith.


Coming To Samaria

Preached on December 20, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 8:1-25

The mission heat has reached boiling point as Christians are forced to leave Jerusalem. Philip preaches the good news in Samaria where many believe. The inclusion of the Samaritans is confirmed by the gift of the Spirit witnessed by the Apostles.


The Witness Of Stephen

Preached on December 13, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts: 6:8-8:1

Persecution has been slowly ramping up against the God's people in Acts so far. In Acts 7 it escalates to the point of death as we meet the first Christian martyr, Stephen.


Get With The Program

Preached on December 13, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 6:8-7:50

Stephen was the first martyr. But he isn’t the last. In his dying words he issues a rousing wake up call to get on board with God's program.


The Highest Priority

Preached on December 6, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 6:1-7

There are so many things that need to be done in the life of a church, but the Word of God and prayer must remain the priority.


The Word Must Go On

Preached on December 6, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 6:1-7

The Word ministry must not be neglected, but in order for that to happen, the church needs godly leaders to oversee other ministries in order for all to be cared for and the lost saved.


Faithful Witness to a Suffering Saviour

Preached on November 29, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 5:12–42

Persecution against the church increases as the Apostles learn what it is to suffer along-side their Saviour.

Joy In Suffering For Jesus

Preached on November 29, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 5:16-42

The mission of the risen Jesus is God's mission. His hand is seen in the signs and wonders, the angel who provides escape and Gamaliel, all who provide the apostles freedom to preach.


Bad Witness in the Church

Preached on November 22, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 5:1–11

The honeymoon period of the church in Acts comes to a sudden end as God breaks out in judgment against a couple who try to deceive his church.


Authentic or Hypocrisy

Preached on November 22, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Acts 4:32 - 5:11

The early church is marked by radical and sacrificial generosity in which no member had any needs. This idealism is undermined by the sin of one couple who hypocritically lied to the apostles and the Spirit of God experiencing immediate judgment.
