    Acts 21:37-40; 22:1-23

    In Acts chapter 21 and the first part of chapter 22, we see how much patience and concern Paul had for the very people who were beating him and trying to kill him. It is amazing that, through all of this, Paul had the desire and ability to tell them about Jesus. It is also interesting to note that Paul’s life was saved, not by Jews, but by Gentiles. God will use this arrest by the Romans to have Paul witness to people that he would never have gotten to unless he had been arrested.

    Acts 21:20-36

    In the middle part of Acts chapter 21, a transition has occurred that takes a while for the Jewish Christians to fully grasp. They are connected to Christ, but they are struggling to define what this means to their connection to the Old Covenant and the temple. As years go by, and especially when the temple is fully destroyed, they lose their connections to temple, and more focus is given to Jesus Christ. Even modern Christians must not allow a violation of certain traditions that we hold dear to cause us to lose sight of the fact that we are the body of Christ. Ex. Music, offering, dress code, or “this is how we have always done it.” Paul exerted a lot of effort to keep peace and unity among his fellow Christians, and we should do likewise.

    The first part of Acts 21 reads like a journal entry. Is this travel log really needed? What is the application to our lives with such travel details? Are we to take from this that we are to be documenting our daily travels better? No, Luke is a theologian and a detailed historian. These details, while possibly boring to us help to add to the truth of the story. These are all real places, cities, and seaports that are on a very specific route to Jerusalem.
    There is much to learn from the interaction of the believers that Paul encountered. The Elders in Ephesus, and the disciples of Tyre with Paul and his team.
    1. The depth of their relationship with each other is to be admired and imitated.
    2. They prayed for each other.
    3. They had a true concern for each other.
    4. Their unity was in Christ.

    The Lamb – Easter

    The Lamb - Easter

    Culturally, Easter is a time known for Easter Bunnies, eggs and baby chickens. However, those things have nothing to do with the real reason we celebrate Easter. The real reason to celebrate Easter is in remembrance of Christ’s resurrection from the dead.
    There is one animal that is correctly associated with the reason that we celebrate Easter. It is not a bunny or a chicken, but a lamb. How important is the Lamb? All creation will eventually acknowledge Him for who He truly is. He is the only substitute that could bring forgiveness of sins. If you reject the Lamb then you also reject heaven, since He holds the book of whose names He has paid the price. The Lamb is the only way to have sins forgiven, and the Lamb is the final judge of all mankind. Bask in His mercy, goodness, love, and grace. Praise God for the Lamb of God who took away your sins and gave you His righteousness. Are you still under the wrath of God for sin? How can you know? What have you done with the Lamb? Have you believed in Jesus, the Lamb of God, for the forgiveness of your sins? Understand that if the Lamb of God has not taken your sins, then you remain in a position of deserving only wrath from God. The good news is, that you can be saved from the wrath that you deserve by the mercy and grace, that is found in the Lamb of God, who died in the place of all those who believe in Him. This day we celebrate Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, the One who was typified, prophesied, crucified, and glorified. Thank you for listening. The Church at Pecan Creek is located in Denton, Texas.

    In the latter part of Acts 20, Paul is bidding farewell to the believers at Ephesus. Now, remember Paul came to Ephesus when there were no believers. For three years he had been teaching them for several hours every day. As a result, there was a massive belief in Christ and repentance of sin. So much so that it caused an economic crisis in the local idol-making industry. Paul had grown extremely close to these believers, but it was time to leave. Paul was heading into arrest and persecution and would never see this group of believers again. However, Paul departs with one final inspirational charge to the elders of the church.

    In the first part of Acts 20, we see how Paul was a great example of a Christian who encouraged other Christians in their faith. How do you receive encouragement? Who are you encouraging? We also looked at Paul’s 10-12 hour teaching that continued past midnight and all the way until daybreak. A few things to remember:
    1. There is apparently no such thing as a preacher going to long.
    2. Paul had a desire to teach Biblical truths, and the people desired to be taught Biblical truths.
    3. Those who love God, love His Word, for this is how we hear God.
    4. Don’t be like Eutychus.
    5. And Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament Feasts

    At the end of Acts 19, we learn of the temple to Artemis in Ephesus and the idolatry it represented as the largest structure in the ancient world, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. What started with one man coming to town proclaiming the gospel a few years earlier, had caused a very noticeable decline in the worship of Artemis, the traffic to the temple, and the sales of temple souvenirs. We learn of Demetrius and the rioters. The belief system of the people had changed, and there was an immediate change in their behavior. They stopped going to the temple, they stopped buying idols. As they witnessed to others even more people were turning away from idols to the one true God who had provided the one true source of salvation for their sins. These Ephesians no longer believed nor behaved like the rest of the people in their culture. What about you? Has your behavior changed because of your beliefs? Thank you for listening.

    In Acts 19 we find that Paul had arrived in Ephesus, spent three months in the Jewish synagogues boldly reasoning and persuading them that Jesus is the Christ. Some believed and some hated, as always seems to be the case when Paul proclaims the gospel. The non-believing Jews cause such a stink that he finally has to go to the Hall of Tyrannus. There he teaches every day for two years. What was the result of Paul's teaching in Ephesus? The result was the confession of sin, repentance from sin, belief in Jesus unto salvation, and the spread of the gospel throughout the continent of Asia. So much so that there was a massive turning of the Ephesians to the one true God.

    In Acts 18 we have read of great Christian role models of a married couple of Aquilla and Priscilla, as well as Apollos. The end of Paul's second mission trip, and the beginning of his third. This is also the last mention of the gift of supernatural acquisition of languages being spoken in Acts. The same God, the same Savior, the same Holy Spirit is involved in the salvation of all of us. Now Apollos left Ephesus to go to Corinth, but Paul arrives in Ephesus. All people need the gospel: Jews, Samaritans, Gentiles, and even those who went so far as to dedicate themselves to the greatest prophet, John the Baptist. The same God, the same Savior, the same Holy Spirit is involved in the salvation of all of us. Thank you for listening. The Church at Pecan Creek is located in Denton, Texas.
