Using Good for the Gospel (Acts 3:1-26)

Using Good for the Gospel

Acts 3:1-26

I. God gives more than we ask for

    A. The man’s request (Acts 3:1-7)
    B. God goes above and beyond (1 Kings 3:5-14; Ephesians 3:20-21; Psalm 147:5)

II. Create an opportunity to praise God

    A. The apostles refused praise (Acts 3:8-12)
    B. Our good works should be seen and praise directed toward God (Ephesians 2:10; Galatians 6:10; Matthew 5:13-16)

III. Using those opportunities of praise, we should preach the gospel

    A. Peter points to “the God of Abraham” (Acts 3:13)
    B. Peter points to God’s “Servant Jesus” (Acts 3:13; Isaiah 53; 52:11; 42:1-4)
    C. Words of comfort and hope (Acts 3:17-19)
    D. We must teach our sincere religious neighbors the truth of the one body (Ephesians 4:4), the Savior of the body (Ephesians 5:23), how to enter that body (Galatians 3:27)
