Sermon Notes:

“Spirit-Filled Martyrdom”
Acts 7:54-8:3

Main Idea: We must be filled with the Spirit if we are to have a Christ-like response in the midst of persecution.

In the midst of suffering persecution, the Spirit-filled Christian …

• Remains confident of Christ’s ________/________.

• Remains confident of their own ________ ________.

• Remains confident of their suffering’s ________ ________.

Discussion Questions
1. In what ways is it encouraging that Christ's authority/dominion is unshakable? When will you most need to be reminded of this? How will you go about reinforcing this truth in your own heart? your own home?

2. Why is it important to remain confident in your own eternal destiny in the midst of persecution? Do you ever struggle in this area? If so, how can you grow in confidence and help/be helped by others to grow?

3. How is suffering's value strategic? How does this help you to persevere in maintaining Christ-like responses in the midst of trials/persecutions?
