Pastor Jim Moss – Acts Part I: Inside the Huddle
Acts 4:32 All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had.
Acts 4:33 The apostles testified powerfully to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God’s great blessing was upon them all.
When God’s grace is at work, people get generous.
Acts 4:34-35 There were no needy people among them, because those who owned the land or houses would sell them and bring the money to the apostles to give to those in need.
Acts 4:36-37 For instance, there was Joseph, the one the apostles nicknamed Barnabus (when means “Son of Encouragement”). He was from the tribe of Levi and came from the island of Cyprus. He sold a field he owned and brought the money to the apostles.
Ananias & Sapphira:
- Spiritual posers
- Praise seekers
- Satan’s instruments
- Spirit grievers
When we don’t value the holiness of God, we minimize our sin. When we minimize our sin, we devalue the cross.
- The gospel frees us from addictions to self and stuff
- It frees us from pretending
- It frees us from wanting praise from people
- It frees us from wanting to lie, steal, and deceive
- It makes us honest and generous
- It sets our minds on the glory that is to be revealed
