Acts: Jesus Builds His Church
Paul’s Arrest, the Gospel’s Opportunity (Acts 21:27-22:29)

This is the 35th sermon in our series Acts: Jesus Builds His Church.

Sermon Outline:

  1. Our identity in three words: People, Law, Place (21:27-40a).
  2. Your testimony is the Gospel’s opportunity (21:40b-22:21).
  3. Not every opportunity will be handled well (22:22-29).

Discussion Questions:

  • Who are the American church’s “gentiles” (Outsiders that we often fail to love)? How does this passage challenge us to love better? 
  • Think about some times you have heard Christians share their testimony. What was the experience like? How did it impact your own faith? Why are stories like those so powerful? 
  • In your DC: Tell us your story. What is your testimony? Think in terms of the 4 steps discussed today (1. Brokenness, 2. Personal conversion, 3. New family identity in the Church/baptism, 4. A redeemed vocation/calling/ministry).
