BENEDICTION:
SERMON: Acts 28:16-31 “Unhindered”

“Paul may be chained but his message remains free. What does this mean for us?”

1. God’s Man is Unstoppable

2. God’s Plan is Unstoppable

3. God’s Gospel is Unstoppable

“People can be quarantined, but the Gospel is not!”
APPLICATION QUESTIONS:
1. Opposition and persecution are themes throughout the book of Acts. Yet, despite the opposition what happens? Read the following texts as you respond: 6:7, 9:31; 12:24; 16:5; 19:20, 28:31. How are passages such as Matthew 16:16-18 and 2 Timothy 2:9 applicable in this context?
2. Romans 28 finds Paul being held as a prisoner in Rome and in certainly less than ideal circumstances for sharing the Gospel, yet he did so. What of you? Witnessing is like so much in life in that ‘waiting for the perfect moment’ can became a crutch for inactivity. Are you continually waiting for a “perfect” moment, or are you willing and able in any moment to share of Jesus?
3. The book of Acts contains some of Scripture’s clearest declarations of who Jesus is and what He accomplishes and brings to us. Review the following passages and identify what they say about the person and work of Jesus: Acts 2:28, 3:14-15, 4:11-12, 5:31, 10:43-44, 11:17-18, 13:38-39, 26:18.
4. Review verse 23 of our sermon text. In this summary statement of a daylong sermon, what are items that Paul likely directed their attention to? What role would the Old Testament have played in this sermon?
5. One of the tragic statements regarding people is contained in v. 24, 26-27. Who is responsible for not believing and where does the burden fall regarding the rejection of Christ, upon God or upon man? In your opinion and experience, what are stumbling blocks to people receiving the good news of the Gospel?
6. Describe how you have been “persuaded” (v. 24) by the Gospel and its impact upon your daily life.
7. You are currently writing “Acts 29”. What is its story in your life?
