'Loving Beyond Reason' Acts 8:1-8

ME - Connecting with We

Appreciation for the opportunity to preach

A little about myself

My Wife

Our Cat

My love language

Our Dream of planting in France

WE - Reveal Felt Need

Who here wants to do great things with God?

hopefully everyone


Read Acts 8:1-8

Attempts to Contain the movement of God

Ravaging Anger of Saul - Attempted Containment, The extent of the persecution

Philip must be stupid, Jews in WWII

No matter how Ravenous you become, you can never contain God!

Conversion of the General (Maximus Decemus -> Saul), From the head of the SS to the frontline of the resistance

God knows our perilous-ness and tells us to go anyway.

Stephan preaching

Philips preaching, His Predicament

Jesus into Jerusalm

The salvation of Paul

Who preached in acts 8

Those who were scattered - Macro Level

Philip rocked it - Micro level

Philip only one example

To who did they preach

Samarians, a place thought to be beyond redemption

people who were traditionally beyond the reach of God

Gods plan is bigger than our circumstances and of our outcome

You - Application

From sharing possessions to sharing Christ

We need heros, like Philip, today

Heros that we know personally

Will you be one of those heros, that lives beyond yourself

We - Vision

We won't get there overnight, but in time our city can be full of Joy just like in Acts 8:8 because of our Actions and Love.

But the outcome is always up to Christ.

Church plant in France, Unsure of the results, but we are trusting God and moving that direction. We are praying and trusting God to bring his Joy back to that country.


Homiletical Idea

In the face of death unknown Christians actively shared their faith and meet together for fellowship

Big Idea/One Point

Our Salvation will lead us to share Christ irregardless of the outcome

Guidance from Woodridge Church

The idea behind the sermon we hope you will prepare is centered on how the Christians preached the word and developed community wherever they went, even (especially?) when they were persecuted and scattered.
