Worship Preparation: June 27, 2021

Sunday, June 27, 2021
Read the sermon text: Acts 5:12-42
Read the sermon summary: In our passage for this Sunday, we see the apostles encountering the same opposition as Jesus. As the good news of the kingdom advances through the apostles’ preaching, hostility increases. Yet, they continue to preach with all boldness. After being beaten by the religious authorities, the apostles “left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name.” What is it that enables a person to rejoice even while suffering for the sake of Christ? In preparation for the sermon consider the following questions: What are the motivations for the actions of the religious authorities? What motives the apostles’ activities? How does verse 38 foreshadow the rest of the book of Acts?
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
My Victory
You came for criminals
And ev'ry Pharisee
You came for hypocrites
Even one like me
You carried sin and shame
The guilt of ev'ry man
The weight of all I've done
Nailed into Your hands
Oh Your love bled for me
Oh Your blood in crimson streams
Oh Your death is Hell's defeat
A cross meant to kill is my victory
Oh Your amazing grace
I've seen and tasted it
It's running through my veins
I can't escape its grip
In You my soul is safe
You cover ev'rything
Behold the Lamb of God
Who takes away our sin
Who takes away our sin
The holy Lamb of God
Makes us alive again
Makes us alive again
