    It's Not Always Easy Slides, 8/4/13 It's Not Always Easy Slides, 8/4/13 Presentation Transcript

    • And  as  they  were  speaking  to  the  people,  the   priests  and  the  captain  of  the  temple  and  the   Sadducees  came  upon  them,    greatly  annoyed   because  they  were  teaching  the  people  and   proclaiming  in  Jesus  the  resurrec;on  from  the   dead.  And  they  arrested  them  and  put  them  in   custody  un;l  the  next  day,  for  it  was  already   evening.  But  many  of  those  who  had  heard  the   word  believed,  and  the  number  of  the  men  came  to   about  five  thousand.   On  the  next  day  their  rulers  and  elders  and  scribes   gathered  together  in  Jerusalem,  with  Annas  the   high  priest  and  Caiaphas  and  John  and  Alexander,   and  all  who  were  of  the  high-­‐priestly  family.    
    • And  when  they  had  set  them  in  the  midst,  they   inquired,  “By  what  power  or  by  what  name  did  you   do  this?”  Then  Peter,  filled  with  the  Holy  Spirit,  said   to  them,  “Rulers  of  the  people  and  elders,  if  we  are   being  examined  today  concerning  a  good  deed   done  to  a  crippled  man,  by  what  means  this  man   has  been  healed,  let  it  be  known  to  all  of  you  and  to   all  the  people  of  Israel  that  by  the  name  of  Jesus   Christ  of  Nazareth,  whom  you  crucified,  whom  God   raised  from  the  dead—by  him  this  man  is  standing   before  you  well.  This  Jesus  is  the  stone  that  was   rejected  by  you,  the  builders,  which  has  become   the  cornerstone.  And  there  is  salva;on  in  no  one   else,  for  there  is  no  other  name  under  heaven  given   among  men  by  which  we  must  be  saved.”  
    • Now  when  they  saw  the  boldness  of  Peter  and   John,  and  perceived  that  they  were  uneducated,   common  men,  they  were  astonished.  And  they   recognized  that  they  had  been  with  Jesus.  But   seeing  the  man  who  was  healed  standing  beside   them,  they  had  nothing  to  say  in  opposi;on.  But   when  they  had  commanded  them  to  leave  the   council,  they  conferred  with  one  another,  saying,   “What  shall  we  do  with  these  men?  For  that  a   notable  sign  has  been  performed  through  them  is   evident  to  all  the  inhabitants  of  Jerusalem,  and  we   cannot  deny  it.  But  in  order  that  it  may  spread  no   further  among  the  people,  let  us  warn  them  to   speak  no  more  to  anyone  in  this  name.”  
    • So  they  called  them  and  charged  them  not  to  speak   or  teach  at  all  in  the  name  of  Jesus.  But  Peter  and   John  answered  them,  “Whether  it  is  right  in  the   sight  of  God  to  listen  to  you  rather  than  to  God,  you   must  judge,  for  we  cannot  but  speak  of  what  we   have  seen  and  heard.”  And  when  they  had  further   threatened  them,  they  let  them  go,  finding  no  way   to  punish  them,  because  of  the  people,  for  all  were   praising  God  for  what  had  happened.  For  the  man   on  whom  this  sign  of  healing  was  performed  was   more  than  forty  years  old.   Acts  4:1-­‐22  (ESV)  
    • “Are  you  unhappy  about  good  works   or  miracles?”  
    • Let  every  person  be  subject  to  the  governing   authori;es.  For  there  is  no  authority  except  from   God,  and  those  that  exist  have  been  ins;tuted  by   God.  Therefore  whoever  resists  the  authori;es   resists  what  God  has  appointed,  and  those  who   resist  will  incur  judgment.  For  rulers  are  not  a  terror   to  good  conduct,  but  to  bad.  Would  you  have  no   fear  of  the  one  who  is  in  authority?  Then  do  what  is   good,  and  you  will  receive  his  approval,    for  he  is   God's  servant  for  your  good.  But  if  you  do  wrong,   be  afraid,  for  he  does  not  bear  the  sword  in  vain.   For  he  is  the  servant  of  God,  an  avenger  who  carries   out  God's  wrath  on  the  wrongdoer.    
    • Therefore  one  must  be  in  subjec;on,  not  only  to   avoid  God's  wrath  but  also  for  the  sake  of   conscience.  For  because  of  this  you  also  pay   taxes,  for  the  authori;es  are  ministers  of  God,   aVending  to  this  very  thing.  Pay  to  all  what  is   owed  to  them:  taxes  to  whom  taxes  are  owed,   revenue  to  whom  revenue  is  owed,  respect  to   whom  respect  is  owed,  honor  to  whom  honor  is   owed.   Romans  13:1-­‐7  (ESV)
