Do you want GREAT POWER & GREAT GRACE? … my notes from sermon preached by Pastor @jkjenkins


Acts 4:32-33

32Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. 33And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.

My Notes:

  • Church with GREAT POWER & GREAT GRACE
  • Don’t be a social club for saints
  • People are supposed to make a difference. Make an impact.
    • Acts 3-6 … it was in Jerusalem
    • Acts 6-12- it was in Judea and Samaria
    • Acts 13-28 – it was to the ends of the earth

What can we learn from the early church?

  • GREAT POWER
    • GOD’S STRENGTH AND ABILITY
    • GROWING
    • LIVES CHANGED
    • ABUNDANCE … ABOVE AND BEYOND
    • SPEAK TO COMMUNITY
    • SPEAK TO POLICY MAKERS
  • GREAT GRACE
    • GOD’S ABILITY TO DO WHAT YOU NEED TO AND THE DESIRE/WILL TO WANT TO
      • TO BE A GOOD HUSBAND
      • TO LISTEN
      • TO BE PATIENT
      • TO BE A FATHER
      • TO NOT TAKE THEM OUT
      • TO BE A PASTOR
    • Smear grace all over you
    • Make it so that you can’t wait to go out and do it, be all God created you to be
  • HOW TO GET GRACE
    • He wants to give it to you in a GREAT WAY!!
    • check out verse 31

31And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

  • PRAY, POWER, PROCLAIM
    • Level of power and courage
    • People need the LORD
    • The world needs us to be salt & light to the world.
  • Be a prayer warrior
  • Ask for His power in your life
  • Be proactive
  • Don’t wait for an emergency to pray
  • Pray daily
  • You know the ANSWER! JESUS!
  • Others need you to share it with them!
  • When was the last time you brought someone to church?
  • When was the last time you lead someone to the Lord?
  • Let’s allow God to smear GRACE all over us and then go out into the world and speak life
  • Let’s help people who we encounter to feel better after they have left us
