Acts 5 (Key verse, Acts 5:29)
What does our obligation to obey Christ involve?
How do you respond to opposition?
The number one thing we are committed to at Connection Church is teaching about Jesus. That might seem a bit odd since that’s what a church is supposed to do. Sadly, some churches don’t. As my two oldest boys left for college and began looking for a church to attend, the main advice I gave them was to look for a church that preaches Jesus. “If the preacher never mentions the name of Jesus run for the hills.” Peter said that they must obey God rather than people. That’s where churches get themselves into trouble. When you start teaching about Jesus it makes people (especially religious people) uncomfortable. The last verse of chapter 5 sums it up. And every day, in the Temple and from house to house, they continued to teach and preach this message: “Jesus is the Messiah.” The central message of Connection Church will always be Jesus.
