Christmas is a time to celebrate when Love came down - when Jesus came to Rescue, Recover, and Reconnect us by giving us the gift of Himself. He wants us to rest in His work... "God rest ye merry gentlemen". Is there room in your "INN-er" heart for Jesus?

As we give Jesus our trust, make Him first in our life, give what we value to His work, and bring other people to Him, we are giving Him gifts even more valuable than those the wise men brought.

There are two trees associated with Christmas - the Christmas tree and the family tree. Jesus chose to come through a messed up broken family so He can identify with us, and so we can identify with Him. Jesus came to die for us because we're family. That's what X-mas is all about - God so loved the world that He GAVE!

The best gift is one that we need, and Christmas is about understanding the need. Like Nicodemus, we must understand that we need to be born again to see that the Kingdom of God is a person (Jesus), a place (heaven), and a thing (His Reign).

After Barnabas found Saul, they went and taught in Antioch. It was there that the disciples were first called "Christians" (little copies of Christ). It was also from Antioch that the Gentile Christians broke down walls with the Jewish Christians by demonstrating God's love and grace through their giving.

The Holy Spirit repeats the message God gave Peter in chapter 10 - "What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy." But unfortunately, as we see then and now, tradition is sometimes the hardest thing to break. Let's have the heart of Peter and say, "...who was I that I could stand in God's way?"

The Lord confirms to Peter that the gospel is for everyone, not just Jews. In obedience, he goes to Cornelius, preaches the good news of Jesus Christ, and witnesses the Holy Spirit fall upon the Gentiles. Like Peter, we need to let the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to interrupt our plans and thinking.

Although Saul's heart and mind was to reach his Jewish brothers in Jerusalem, God called him to preach the Good News to the Gentiles. The churches were actually edified and multiplied when he left! The renowned apostle Paul had to spend his first years in ministry in obscurity for God to prepare him for his calling. Like Saul, let's not get discouraged in the wait, but trust God for the "bigger picture."

As we see in Saul and Ananias' lives, obedience to the Lord isn't always easy, but it is always worth it. Saul had to sit in darkness for three days, while Ananias had to work through his fears with the Lord, but the course of history was changed when they both chose to trust in the Lord and answer the Lord's call. How about you?

Saul was going down a "crooked" path as he persecuted Christians, but it was on a street called Straight: where he was gloriously converted and really began to pray; where he discovered God's will for his life; where he was filled with the Holy Spirit; where he openly identified himself with the Lord and His people; and where he became a living witness for the Lord. Are you on "Straight Street"?

Philip proclaimed Christ, while Simon boasted of himself. The people were amazed at Simon's magic, but they were converted to Christ by Philip's ministry. God is not to be used to build up ourselves. It's all about His Kingdom. Are we like Philip or Simon? Let's be missional minded!

Stephen's death brought about great persecution against the church in Jerusalem, which scattered the believers throughout Judea and Samaria, just as Jesus spoke of in Acts 1:8. However, as they kept talking about the God of glory, they saw the God of glory work miracles, which resulted in much rejoicing in spite of the persecution!

As Stephen operated in God's grace and power, the Sanhedrin accused him of blasphemy  against Moses (the Law) & God. He responded by reminding them of their history, for which he was stoned to death. Yet even in his death, Stephen responded in love by the power of the Holy Spirit. How do we respond to persecution?

Ephesians 2: 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, that no one should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

The purging of sin and hypocrisy in Ananias and Sapphira from the church, brought about purity, which allowed for God's power, which resulted in multitudes being saved and healed. The early church knew who God was. Do we? Will we be able to stand and say like the apostles, "We must obey God rather than men"?

A deeper look into the lesson of Ananias and Sapphira teaches us: 1) That hypocrisy kills our witness, joy, peace and love  2) Satan always keeps his victims in the dark  3) When we sin, we invariable hurt others. Sin kills, but Jesus saves, loves, and lives!

When the early church was in one accord, with one heart & soul, stewarding and not owning their possessions, there was great power and abundant grace! A man named Joseph sold his property and and gave the money to the church; however, Ananias and Sapphira tried to do the same, but lied and withheld some money, which brought about their death. The Spirit gives, but the flesh takes...

The Council of religious leaders tried to forbid Peter and John from speaking in the name of Jesus, but the apostles responded that they couldn't stop speaking about what they saw and heard.

After John and Peter healed the lame man at the Beautiful Gate, the people were amazed and began to congregate. Peter realized he had an opportunity to preach, so he gave the same as he did before - "Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord." This is still the good news today: the Holy Spirit still brings the times of refreshing!

Jesus has and will fulfill all four cups of the Jewish Passover Seder. The cups of Sanctification, Judgment, Redemption, & Praise. Without judgment, there can be no redemption, but Jesus has redeemed us with His own blood. We, who believe in Jesus, can drink the cup of Redemption, because Jesus drank the cup of judgment that was ours.

After the people received the Word of God through Peter, about 3000 were convicted to repent and be baptized. These members of the first church were in unity and continually devoted themselves to 1. the apostles' teaching 2. fellowship 3. communion and 4. prayer. As a result, there was a sense of awe and many signs and wonders took place. What would happen if we had the same devotion and unity?
