A continuation on our story of Simon the Sorcerer who believed he could place of financial value on divine things. This passage teaches us a lot about our sinful temptation to look for personal gain in our spiritual lives. We also conduct an overview of the changes in the reception of the Holy Spirit in Acts.

In Acts 8:9 we meet Simon the Sorcerer, a man used to subvert the salvation of the Samaritan people. Often times we will encounter those who interfere with or even counterfeit true spirituality causing distractions in ministry. How do we guard against this kind of work and more importantly, how do we guard our hearts from becoming subverters ourselves?

This this second message that introduces us to the persecution of the early church, when Christians scattered with the gospel on their lips. They did not allow their circumstances to steal their message, in fact their circumstances were nothing more than opportunity to speak Christ!

After Stephen's death the church in Jerusalem enters an increasingly hostile ministry environment. People begin to scatter into the surrounding regions taking the gospel with them. In this message we consider a series of significant principles about hope, persecution and spiritual warfare.

In this study of Stephen's history lesson to the Jewish rulers, we have learned how Abraham had a relationship with God without a temple and we have seen how Joseph was rejected but God still used him to redeem his people and the whole world. In this study we learn about Moses: his heart & his identity. We also see the religious leaders exposed for who they truly are.

Last week we were introduced to Stephen, a deacon in the church and a man of great wisdom. His power was his great faith that invited the Holy Spirit to speak mightily through him. In this message we find the Jewish people stirred up against Stephen, making accusations against him. Here we see Stephen respond with great clarity and peace in the midst of temptation - - a testimony to us of who we ought to be as ministers of the gospel.

We learn from the apostles what it means to meet the needs of the flock while prioritizing what God prioritizes. Learn how the apostles dealt with their leadership void and the value of a biblical approach.
