Passionate Proclamation

Acts 4:18-20, 6:8-15, 7:1, 8:1-8, 40  Philippians 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:12-15

The Apostles took Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 1:8 seriously.

Sharing Christ with others can go bad for you. The Apostles – Peter and John chose to obey God rather than man.

Stephen was unashamed of Christ. Because of his preaching, Stephen was arrested. He was questioned and then when given the chance to speak, preached a sermon. Then he was stoned.

This flies in the face of the prosperity gospel. Sometimes when you are obedient and doing God’s will, things just go bad.

Philip preached wherever he went.

Paul understood that nothing else matters but Christ. Christ is the first priority and he will take care of the rest.
