Death on the front end of Acts 5, and new life at the closing. Which will you choose? Choose life, there is more blessing that way.
So often we look at Acts 2 merely as the beginning of the church, which is important, but we can easily miss the character of God displayed through His supernatural generosity, His supernatural boldness, leading us to supernatural repentance, and creates a supernatural community as a result.
You don’t need to keep making excuses, because no one cares how good your excuses are. Jesus tells a story in Luke 14 where people give excuses instead of coming to the Master’s banquet. He is saying that our excuses have no place in the Kingdom of God. In order to grow in faith, we need to quit making excuses.
Stop saying, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” God has a reason for too much in our lives.
When you’re caught in a bind, do you simply have regrets, or can you be truly repentant?
Don’t take this one on alone. You need God’s spiritual authority to defeat the enemy. Many people don’t believe the devil and his demons even exist, but the Scriptures clearly teach that evil was cast out of people, Jesus came to defeat the power of death and Satan, and we can be free from the dominion of darkness.
