STUDY THROUGH THE BOOK OF ACTS – CHAPTER 4 :VERSES 24-37

funny-pictures-auto-504942

My daughter is 2 years old and a frequent question we hear is……

(Drum roll please!)

“WHY?”

Ask her to do something or try to explain something and she’ll say, “Why?” and respond with “Why.”

And if you can’t figure out what to say, this simple trick will fix that.  Respond with a loud excited voice, “Who wants candy?”

If you’re a parent you’ll love this comdey skit by Michael Jr.

Let’s finish up our study of Chapter 4 in the Book of Acts.

Here are verses 23-37 in the Message Bible:

One Heart, One Mind

23-26 As soon as Peter and John were let go, they went to their friends and told them what the high priests and religious leaders had said. Hearing the report, they lifted their voices in a wonderful harmony in prayer: “Strong God, you made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them. By the Holy Spirit you spoke through the mouth of your servant and our father, David:

Peter and John are rock-stars. They were in a midst of wolves and were ninja enough to escape. The news energizes the group and they praise God.

Why the big noise, nations?
Why the mean plots, peoples?
Earth’s leaders push for position,
Potentates meet for summit talks,
The God-deniers, the Messiah-defiers!

27-28 “For in fact they did meet—Herod and Pontius Pilate with nations and peoples, even Israel itself!—met in this very city to plot against your holy Son Jesus, the One you made Messiah, to carry out the plans you long ago set in motion.

There is an amazing truth here. God crowned His Son to be King-Messiah, Martyr, and Master of the Universe.

29-30 “And now they’re at it again! Take care of their threats and give your servants fearless confidence in preaching your Message, as you stretch out your hand to us in healings and miracles and wonders done in the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

31 While they were praying, the place where they were meeting trembled and shook. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak God’s Word with fearless confidence.

32-33 The whole congregation of believers was united as one—one heart, one mind! They didn’t even claim ownership of their own possessions. No one said, “That’s mine; you can’t have it.” They shared everything. The apostles gave powerful witness to the resurrection of the Master Jesus, and grace was on all of them.

34-35 And so it turned out that not a person among them was needy. Those who owned fields or houses sold them and brought the price of the sale to the apostles and made an offering of it. The apostles then distributed it according to each person’s need.

36-37 Joseph, called by the apostles “Barnabas” (which means “Son of Comfort”), a Levite born in Cyprus, sold a field that he owned, brought the money, and made an offering of it to the apostles.

Air 1 has a contest to make someone’s dream or goal come true. Well, I submitted mine and so can you at Air1.com.

A dream of mine is to to gather a team of godly men and women to the Philippines to do a Evangelical concert to reach the youth. The guest speakers would be Manny Pacman and Tim Tebow. The message will be given by Pastor Mark Foreman. The musicical line up would be all or several of my favorites: Switchfoot, Group 1 Crew, Moriah Peters, Capital Kings, TobyMac, Lecrea, Dominic Balli, Beckah Shae, KJ-52. I forgot to mention a special special appearance by HappySlip to do a comedy skit….might get Michael Jr too. =)

I’m not sure if I’ll be moving on to Chapter 5 with this series, but I’ll continue to post things that inspire me.

Hope you enjoy these music videos!

You’re Holy
You are the Lord Almighty
You’re holy
You alone deserve the Glory
The morning star
The king of kings
Heir of all things

A friend of a sinner
