A- Gospel Power
Good news which is powerless to change the misery in the world is not good news
The Gospel’s Power is made known by the Apostles healing of the sick and care of the poor
B- Things Go Bad
The gospel’s power will always be challenged by the world’s power
What do we do when participating in God’s work puts us at odds with the world?
C- Freedom?
If we hold fast to Christ, nothing can stop us.
The Gospel is unstoppable, and God will let nothing hinder its work.
God gives the apostles freedom, but is this the kind of freedom we celebrate today?
They are free, but they do not run to protect themselves
They are not so much freed from prison as they are freed for the gospel
Precedented in Egypt
The freedom offered by God is not the freedom we celebrate
American freedom is selfish and easy
God’s freedom is selfless and difficult
The freedom given by God empowers the apostles to stand in defiance of the world
D- Revolution
In Short, the Holy Spirit empowers us for a revolution
God’s revolution looks different than revolutions in this world
“When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious how or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you are to say.” (Luke 12:11-12)
I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death”- Patrick Henry
“Those who wish to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” -Thomas Paine
