“What In the World - The Advance of the Gospel”

Acts 4:1-31; 5:17-42; Philippians 1:12-14


From the Table to the World . . .

“For as often as you eat this bread, and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”  1 Corinthians 11:26


·         When we come to the table we remember His sacrifice for our sin


·         My reflective remembrance should lead to me to unashamed proclamation of His gospel.

o   Personal faith is not meant to be a private faith.


Gospel Advance . . .

Remember what the climate of the culture was as the apostles took this gospel to the nations.  There was much persecution.  (Acts 4:1-31; 5:17-42)


·         Persecution paves the way for proclamation of the gospel.  (Philippians 1:12-14)


·         The gospel has always thrived in times of difficulty and tribulation.

o   Persecution has never hindered the gospel, only facilitated its increase
