Acts 26:22-23

What would you say if someone asked you, “How do you know that Jesus is the Savior, that He is the Christ?” Many believers would not have a clue what to say because we have forgotten the primary source of proof that God gave us to use, fulfilled prophecy. Fulfilled prophecy is a tremendous source of strength that is rarely discovered by Christians today. Our faith is not a faith in nothing, wishful thinking, or mythology. Our faith is rooted in the divine revelation of God through what He spoke through His prophets ahead of time and caused to come to pass in the fulness of time. Let us rest our souls in knowing that the great salvation spoken of by the prophets that the Christ must suffer, die, rise and be a light to Gentiles has come and through Jesus the Christ we Gentiles can be rescued from darkness by the light of Christ.

    Acts 26:16-18

    In these two verses of Acts 26, we look at what Jesus said to Paul on the road to Damascus. Paul considered Jesus’ death and resurrection from the dead a vital component of the gospel. The resurrection proved that Jesus is the Christ and His resurrection is a pledge or promise that all who believe in Him will rise as well. Many Christians struggle with the thoughts of “saved” or “unsaved” their whole life. If Christ is your Savior, then you are safe, you are secured, you are being preserved by God Himself. Take comfort, as Paul did, in knowing that God is the very one who began your salvation and guards your salvation to its completion. As a believer, what should your response be to such a wonderful truth? Such a message should cause those who are saved to praise God and worship Him that you have “a place among those who are sanctified.”

    Acts 25 & 26

    Paul has presented the gospel from Damascus to Jerusalem, and three long mission trips to places that had never heard the gospel, to synagogues, to common people, to the Sanhedrin, to governors, and now to a king. Yet through it all, he has maintained clear gospel communication, called people to repent and believe, and has had an unstoppable boldness no matter where he was or who he was in front of. May we strive to be more like Paul within our boldness and clarity of the gospel to all people.

    Acts 23:12-35; 24:1-27

    The Apostle Paul’s pain, trials, sufferings, and imprisonment destroy modern misconceptions of how some believe the Christian life is to be experienced.  Here, we have a wonderful example of a man who lives right before God and man, yet suffers, is beaten, ridiculed, and spends years in prison. But God has sovereignly ordained it.

    Acts 23:1-11

    In Acts 23 Paul stands before the Sanhedrin and even under trial and persecution continues to speak the true Gospel. We are reminded that we must keep the Gospel. It is divisive, but it is the only message that can bring about salvation. The message of Jesus was divisive during His time on earth, Paul’s time on earth, and continues to be so during our time on earth. We still present the Gospel clearly even though it is divisive. It is the one message that God has given for salvation.

    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.

    Acts 21:1-20

    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 2018

    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.
