Acts:Reboot #8

Posted 3/3/2019

Sunday Morning Sermon by Pastor Lee Evans

Reboot: The Church 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

1. Was Devoted to What God Says!

  • About Men… 2:23,36,38, 40; Rom. 3:23, 6:23
  • About God… 2: 19, 20;22, 24; 4:12; Heb. 9:27
  • About Godly Living… 1 Peter 1:15-16; Rom. 12:1-2

“This Jesus is the stone rejected by you builders, which has become the cornerstone. 12) There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.“ Acts 4:11-12

 

The Church NOW

1.Was Devoted to What Man Says!  
  • About Men… We are basically good!
  • About God… He does not exist or if He does He is uninvolved & uncaring about our world or He is good and so loving He will not send anyone to Hell
  • About Godly Living… Not necessary… Do whatever you please!

The Church Then…

2. Devoted to Fellowship 

  • In the Word, v. 42
  • Participation  with the body
  • Giving of self, v. 42, 44-46
  • The Lord’s Table v. 46 – the Lords Supper – the Cross – Jesus bloodly cross & the disciples Cross (Matt. 16:24)


The Church NOW

2. Devoted to Consumerism!  
  • Meeting “felt needs” over real needs!
  • Putting the wants, preferences and opinions of people over pleasing God! Giving people what they WANT!
  • “Entertain Me”; “Please Me”; “Help me FEEL good, about Me”; “Tell me what I want to hear”.

The Church Then…

3. Devoted to Prayer & Praise, v. 42, 47  

  • Consistently, “daily”; “together”
  • Regularly, Frequently… Acts 3:1-2 

  There dependency was on GOD, not themselves!


The Church Now…

3. Devoted to Religious Activity when its Convenient

  • Paul said that in the last days some men would be 

5  holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people. 2 Timothy 3:5 (CSB Bible)
  Convenient – when there is NOTHING else to do…


The Church Then…

4. Devoted to Telling People about Jesus! v. 47

    
“So those who were scattered went on their way preaching (sharing the good news) the word.” Acts 8:4  

  • How do we know?

“Everyday the Lord added to their number those who were being saved…” v. 47 

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

 

The Church Now…

4. Devoted to talking about Non-Essentials!

  •   Politics will not get you or neighbors to Heaven
  •   The weather doesn’t get anyone  to Heaven
  •   Our Families doesn’t get anyone to Heaven.
  •   Our Hobbies will not get anyone to Heaven.

ALL of those are roads we can take to find a way to turn the conversation to Jesus...
