Sermon

In the face of opposition, the gospel will spread!

The gospel spreads in the face of persecution through ordinary Christians, to "those people", and against all powers.

More Powerful than the Opposition

Picking back up in Acts, opposition has reached a climax with the stoning of Stephen, and a persecution breaking out in Jerusalem. But where opposition increases, so does the advance of the gospel.

Sermon

When opposition increases, so does the advance of the gospel.

Under the extreme heat of persecution and opposition, the word of God advanced. That brings us to the big idea of our passage this morning: When opposition increases, so does the advance of the gospel. For many of you, following Jesus openly and publicly at home, at work, at school, or in your neighborhood is becoming increasingly risky. Don’t be afraid or discouraged. Almighty God loves to spread the glorious gospel Jesus Christ under the most scorching of circumstances. Jesus is the light that shines in the darkness. The question that our passage helps us consider is “how?” How does the gospel advance when opposition increases? We’re going to explore three ways today: (1) Through “ordinary” people, (2) to “those” people, and (3) over “great” people.

Taking Heart During Opposition

Every Christian experiences opposition. Why can we take heart in the face of opposition? Because God's purposes can't be thwarted, others have gone before us, and we've been brought in to Jesus.

Working Together

As the church continues to grow, there are growing pains. When we face such problems, we're prone to leave, ignore them, or wait for someone else to fix them. Jesus empowers a better way: Working together so disciples continue to multiply.

Joyously Endure Opposition

Joyously endure opposition to your gospel-witness by: 1. obeying God rather than people; 2. knowing setbacks can’t stop the gospel; 3. and because The Holy Spirit is witnessing too.
