The reason we dive into Acts even more clearly is due to the fact that as we have been diving into scripture through Philippians and then had baptisms, we see that God at work is through the Holy Spirit. It’s his Grace in action and His Spirit within us that makes His kingdom continue forward!

Just this last few weeks, I have mentioned the scripture
Acts 2:38 NLT
38Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Now obviously this pertains to being baptized, but the verse ends with… “then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit!”

Now, the Holy Spirit is not a bird. He is the 3rd person of the trinity and he dwells in us as Christ followers. But before I get ahead of myself… let’s pray, then jump into the word.
Thought:
Now this is a personal belief, but I truly believe that though your value doesn’t change based on who you are or what you do for the Kingdom of God, your influence is in direct proportion to your surrender.
Acts of the Apostles 1:1-26 NLT

Now this is a personal belief, but I truly believe that though your value doesn’t change based on who you are or what you do for the Kingdom of God, your influence is in direct proportion to your surrender.
Walking on Water

Thought: Jesus reveals his lordship over creation by walking on water toward his disciples.
Application: What does that mean for us?
We will allow Jesus to show his lordship in our lives.
Calming the Storm
Thought:Jesus shows his lordship by calming the storm and revealign to his disciples their lack fo faith in his love and divinity.
1) Power comes from the Holy Spirit!
There is a difference between having the Holy Spirit and being filled with the Holy Spirit.
Acts of the Apostles 13:52 NLT

2) The Purpose is to be a witness.
3) The plan is to impact the world for the glory of God.
Application Point:
We can confidently and courageously be witnesses of Jesus by understanding the power, purpose, and plan of the mission God has entrusted to each of us.
