Transcript

  • 1. Now  those  who  were  sca,ered  because  of  the   persecu2on  that  arose  over  Stephen  traveled  as  far   as  Phoenicia  and  Cyprus  and  An2och,  speaking  the   word  to  no  one  except  Jews.  But  there  were  some   of  them,  men  of  Cyprus  and  Cyrene,  who  on  coming   to  An2och  spoke  to  the  Hellenists  also,  preaching   the  Lord  Jesus.  And  the  hand  of  the  Lord  was  with   them,  and  a  great  number  who  believed  turned  to   the  Lord.  The  report  of  this  came  to  the  ears  of  the   church  in  Jerusalem,  and  they  sent  Barnabas  to   An2och.    
  • 2. When  he  came  and  saw  the  grace  of  God,  he   was  glad,  and  he  exhorted  them  all  to  remain   faithful  to  the  Lord  with  steadfast  purpose,  for   he  was  a  good  man,  full  of  the  Holy  Spirit  and  of   faith.  And  a  great  many  people  were  added  to   the  Lord.  So  Barnabas  went  to  Tarsus  to  look  for   Saul,  and  when  he  had  found  him,  he  brought   him  to  An2och.  For  a  whole  year  they  met  with   the  church  and  taught  a  great  many  people.  And   in  An2och  the  disciples  were  first  called   Chris2ans.  
  • 3. Now  in  these  days  prophets  came  down  from   Jerusalem  to  An2och.  And  one  of  them  named   Agabus  stood  up  and  foretold  by  the  Spirit  that   there  would  be  a  great  famine  over  all  the  world   (this  took  place  in  the  days  of  Claudius).  So  the   disciples  determined,  every  one  according  to  his   ability,  to  send  relief  to  the  brothers  living  in   Judea.  And  they  did  so,  sending  it  to  the  elders   by  the  hand  of  Barnabas  and  Saul.   Acts  11:19-­‐30  (ESV)  
  • 4. WHAT’S  A  CHRISTIAN?   Is  there  enough  evidence  in  your  life  to  convict  you?   Acts  11:19-­‐30  
  • 5. I.  CHRISTIANS  CAN  BE  IDENTIFIED  BY  WHAT   THEY  SAY  (vs.  19-­‐21)  
  • 6. THEY  SPEAK  OUT!  
  • 7. I.  CHRISTIANS  CAN  BE  IDENTIFIED  BY  WHAT   THEY  SAY  (vs.  19-­‐21)   II.  CHRISTIANS  CAN  BE  IDENTIFIED  BY  THE   GRACE  THEY  DISPLAY  (vs.  22-­‐26)  
  • 8. THEY  STAND  OUT!  
  • 9. A  glad  heart  makes  a  cheerful  face…   Proverbs  15:13  (ESV)  
  • 10. •  Displayed  in  our  countenance.   •  Declared  by  our  lives.   •  Demonstrated  in  our  RELATIONSHIPS.  
  • 11. I.  CHRISTIANS  CAN  BE  IDENTIFIED  BY  WHAT   THEY  SAY  (vs.  19-­‐21)   II.  CHRISTIANS  CAN  BE  IDENTIFIED  BY  THE   GRACE  THEY  DISPLAY  (vs.  22-­‐26)   III.  CHRISTIANS  CAN  BE  IDENTIFIED  BY  THEIR   GENEROSITY  (vs.  27-­‐30)  
  • 12. THEY  SHELL  OUT!  
  • 13. But  if  anyone  has  the  world's  goods  and  sees  his   brother  in  need,  yet  closes  his  heart  against  him,   how  does  God's  love  abide  in  him?  Li,le   children,  let  us  not  love  in  word  or  talk  but  in   deed  and  in  truth.   John  3:17-­‐18  (ESV)  
  • 14. If  you  were  on  trial  for  being  a   Chris2an,  would  there  be  enough   evidence  to  convict  you?    
  • 15. What  would  the  Judge  &  jury  find?   •  Could  they  tell  by  what  you  said?   •  Could  they  tell  by  Who  they  saw  IN  YOU?   •  Could  they  tell  by  your  checkbook?
