Sermon Notes

I. Work toward a single purpose

Acts 5:12-13

Many signs and wonders were being done among the people through the hands of the apostles. They were all together in Solomon’s Colonnade. 13 No one else dared to join them, but the people spoke well of them.

II. Witness about Jesus’s saving power

Acts 5:14
Believers were added to the Lord in increasing numbers—multitudes of both men and women.

III. Walk in the Spirit’s presence

Acts 5:15-16
As a result, they would carry the sick out into the streets and lay them on cots and mats so that when Peter came by, at least his shadow might fall on some of them. 16 In addition, a multitude came together from the towns surrounding Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
