SERMON NOTES & DISCUSSION

FAITH:
Confidence that God is with me and in total control.

James 1:2-4 NIV
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

BOTTOM LINE: I will know what I really believe when my faith is tested.

Acts 4:7 NIV
They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: “By what power or what name did you do this?”

1. Pivotal circumstances create a choice of who or what will I trust.

Acts 4:10 NIV
10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed.

2. Pivotal circumstances provide opportunities to trust God like I have never done before.

Acts 4:13 NIV
13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

3. Pivotal circumstances show Jesus - not me - as the center of the story.

Acts 4:21 NIV
21 After further threats they let them go. They could not decide how to punish them, because all the people were praising God for what had happened.

4. Pivotal circumstances reveal God's ultimate power.

  • What questions did you ask to discover where God is at work in their life, even if they are not aware?
  • How were you able to share your story of life change or how you have experienced Jesus?
  • How can you be intentional this week with people where you live, work, and play to have spiritual/missional conversations if the opportunity arises?
  • Who in your life do you think could be discipleable or open to spiritual/missional conversations?
