"Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah." Acts 5:42

"ACTS of the Exalted Jesus"

Sermon Series

February 1-May 31, 2015

 

Spring 2015 at Kenwood, we turned our hearts toward the New Testament book of Acts. Luke, the beloved physician and companion of Paul, wrote a two-volume work about Christ. His first volume, which we call the Gospel of Luke, tells the story of Jesus’ birth, ministry, death, and resurrection. Luke’s purpose in writing is that we know the certainty of what has been fulfilled among us (Luke 1:4). His second volume, which we call Acts, is presented as the continuation of all that Jesus is doing in the world in and through His followers. Acts displays the great privilege God has given us as witnesses of Christ in our own times and places. Acts is a series of compelling pictures of the expanding reach of Christ in the world. I am very excited to explore this portion of God’s Word together as a community of faith. My prayer is that we might grow in our confidence of the Gospel facts and experience Christ’s reach into our own lives, families, and communities. Jesus says: “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

 

We sought to integrate and apply the series in small groups during the week using the study guide Be Dynamic: Experience the Power of God’s People by Warren Wiersbe (David C. Cook, 2009). For the second half of the series, we used Be Daring: Put Your Faith Where the Action Is, also by Warren Wiersbe.
