Reboot: A Time of Refreshing! Acts 9:31

Posted 8/25/2019

Sermon Series from Acts:Reboot by Pastor Lee Evans

Reboot: A Time of Refreshing!

Acts 9:31

31  So the church throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and was strengthened. Living in the fear of the Lord and encouraged by the Holy Spirit, it increased in numbers.

The Church Had…

  • Been birthed on the day of Pentecost! Acts 2
  • Grown dramatically! Acts 3-5
  • Endured attacks from within & from outside! Acts 6-7
  • Fled from Jerusalem to Judea, Samaria and Damascus due to persecution (Acts 8 – 9:4)
  • Saw Saul, the chief Persecutor sent by the Jews become a powerful preacher that Jesus is the Messiah…

1. The Church at Peace

Scripture calls believers Athletes; Soldiers; Sheep, etc.
All of these have something in common…  

  • We need Rest.  (Peace, Calm, NOT Retirement)
  • God too, Gen. 2:2,3
  • Why?

Saul no longer leading persecution
Roman Emperor took aim on Jews…

2. The Church strengthened

Strengthened – Edified; built up; promoted spiritual growth; confirmed in the faith…  

  • By working together, Rom. 14:19; 15:2; 1 Cor. 10:23 
  • By loving one another, 1 Cor. 8:1  
  • By using our gift(s) Eph. 4:12 

3.  The Church Walking

  • By Faith, Col. 2:6  
  • Like Jesus, 1 John 2:6; 1 Peter 2:21
  •   In the Fear of the Lord, Acts 2:43; 5:5,11; 19:17 

4. The Church Encouraged

  • The Spirit is our Helper, John 14-16
    The Paraklete – on who comes along side of…

"I will pray the Father, & He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever“ John 14:6

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, & bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26

5. The Church Multiplying

  • Healthy sheep have sheep
  • Healthy churches grow, spiritually & numerically
