Acts:Reboot #10

Posted 3/17/2019

Sermon Series by Pastor Lee Evans

The Book of Acts: Its time to Reboot Our Passion for God, His Purpose’s, His Power

 


Why The Church Needs a Reboot: Then & Now

 

Acts 2:40-47

40  With many other words he testified & strongly urged them, saying, "Be saved from this corrupt generation!" 41  So those who accepted his message were baptized, & that day about three thousand people were added to them. 42  They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, & to prayer. 43  Everyone was filled with awe, & many wonders & signs were being performed through the apostles. 44  Now all the believers were together & held all things in common…

45  They sold their possessions & property & distributed the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46  Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple, & broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with joyful & sincere hearts, 47  praising God & enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.

 

The Church THEN vs NOW

1.The Church…

  Then Was Devoted to What God Says! 

  Now is devoted to what Man Says

 
2.The Church…

  Then was Devoted to Fellowship

  Now is devoted to Consumerism


3. The Church Then was Devoted 

to Prayer!  V. 42, 47

Leaders – Acts 3:1; 6:4; 9:40; 10:9; 11:5; 16:13, 25

Members - Acts 1:14; 4:31; 6:6; 12:5; 12:12; 13:3

Private & Corporate – 

“When trials come, don’t wring your hands,

Bend your knees” – Adrian Rogers


3. The Church Now is Devoted

to Activity!

"Write to the angel of the church in Sardis: Thus says the one who has the seven spirits of God… I know your works; you have a reputation for being alive, but you are dead. Rev. 3:1

“…holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people.” 2 Tim. 3:5

 

4. The Church Then was Devoted to 

the Worship of a Powerful God!

“…many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles… (they were) praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people…” v. 43,47

  They did not worship the Apostles

  They Praised & worshiped GOD!

Acts 14:8-18, see v. 15


4. The Church Now is Devoted to 

Idols!

21  Little children, guard yourselves from idols.

1 John 5:21 (CSB Bible)   

Personalities (1 Cor. 1:11-17) – Pet Projects – Methods/Ministries -  Politics – Buildings

See Acts 17:16; 1 Thes. 1:0


5. The Church Then was Devoted

to Telling People about  Jesus!

“…the Lord added to their number those who were being saved…” Acts 2:47

“…how can they believe without hearing about Him…”  Rom. 10:14

  What do YOU talk about when with the lost?


5. The Church Now is Devoted

 to talking about Anything & Everything but the Gospel of Jesus!

Weather; Hobbies; Family; Plans; Vacation;  Garden; Cars; Sports; Politics; Health, Doctors Visits…

What about Sin? Eternity? Jesus?

Do your Actions & Attitude about the Church Need a Reboot?
How is your Prayer life?
Your Worship?
