SERMON: "The Message That Matters" (Acts 7:51-8:3)

1) A message worth living for (7:51-53)

Jesus Christ is the Messiah,
Promised by God through the OT
The Word became flesh
Lived, died, and rose again
For the forgiveness of sins


2) A message worth dying for (7:54-60)

Why not to be a martyr…
…and how to be a good one


3) A message that cannot die (8:1-3)

Persecution didn’t destroy the gospel;
Persecution spread the gospel.

Thesis:
In your death, and in your life, it is the message of the gospel that matters.
TAKEAWAYS:
1. Praise God for who He is; thank God for what He has done. He is good, and He has done good for you.
2. How much of what you “preach to yourself” (and therefore live by) is the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins? What have you added to that? Subtracted?
3. What is the “gospel” that people hear from you, or see in you? Is it confession, repentance, and forgiveness of sins in Christ, or something else. Prayer: Heavenly Father, I have obscured your holy and precious Son in my words and through my works. Have mercy on me, the sinner. You, who knew no sin, became sin on my behalf, that I might become the righteousness of God in you.
