Jesus Freaks

How did it go yesterday? Let people share about acts of kindness done in Jesus name - lead into today’s text.

Overlooked Cripple

Background Acts 3 - Read vs. 1-10, 15-16 - why overlooked by Jesus?

Now the party’s over - Acts 4:1-3 - 3K then 5K now enough is enough

Acts of kindness will spark two reactions - don’t be fooled!

1 - it will melt hearts or 2 - It will harden hearts - persecution

When do we get bold? (ask people to give answers)

For some it is easy, others it comes from outrage

Boldness of the apostles comes from a conviction and certainty of the living Jesus - do you have the same thing?

Acts 13 - 14 - these are ordinary people - just like us - but filled with extraordinary boldness and power - Jesus is alive and in me today!

Vs. 16 - 20 Threats? So what...

Vs. 23 on - go back and report this good news - pray for more boldness

We are filled with the HS for a purpose - do you know His purpose?

Vs. 31-36 Community erupts! - no needy people

Do you ever hunger for real community? To know and to be known?

Beautiful sound of women visiting, laughing, caring for each other.

We don’t have enough time together to experience true community. So...

Retreat - - this is so big we can’t pull it off without a lot of help

What does $25 get you today? - dinner & movie? How about memory - deeper relationships, fishing, movie night, VB or SB, Nature hike and canoe down a river, movie night, 3 meals and room for the night. Free reign over acres of beautiful campgrounds. What does it cost for your family to go to Disney World? That’s action without much community.
