Sunday Morning 9/26/10

We had a great day in the house of the Lord today.  The singing was a true blessing and my heart is filled with joy as I remember the fellowship we shared after the service at our pot blessing before the business meeting and heading out to do services in two of our area nursing homes today.  It was a full day, but a very blessed one.  The sermon this morning comes from Acts chapter 24 and examines Paul’s testimony and witness before Felix.  May God richly bless you through His Word.

Trials and Tribulations in the Way

Sermon notes 9/26/10

Acts 24

  1. Flattery will get you nowhere – Acts 24:1-9
    1. High priest and elders
    2. Tertullus – the spokesman
    3. Three charges
      1. He stirs up riots – somewhat true
      2. He is a ring leader of the sect of the Nazarenes – also true
      3. He attempted to profane the Temple – false
  2. Paul’s defense
    1. No flattery – just facts
    2. Peaceful in the Temple – not trying to start a riot
    3. A member of “the Way” – the sect of the Nazarenes
      1. Calling it a sect means it is still a part of Judaism
      2. The Pharisees and Sadducees are also referred to as sects
    4. Not profaning the Temple – Paul was going to worship there
      1. He was bringing sacrifices – Acts 21:22-24, 26
      2. He was “purified” in the Temple – Acts 24:18
  3. Presenting the Gospel to a “captive” audience
    1. Felix knows about the Way
    2. Drusilla, the Jewish wife – a daughter of Herod Agrippa I
    3. Righteousness, self-control and the coming judgment
    4. Conviction of sin – Acts 24:25 – judgment of fire
