Sermon Notes

GOD ON THE MOVE
The Fruit of Rejection for Christ
Acts 4:13-37

Fruit Grown in the Soil of Rejection

Fruit #1:  Boldness in sharing the Message

Fruit #2:  Fellowship in prayer

Fruit #3:  Generosity toward the saints

For reflection:

  • Why should believers “rejoice” when they suffer for Jesus?
  • How does the rejection by the world help us grow in Christlikeness?

For discussion:

  • What are some ways that God is urging you to be more bold for Christ?
  • What are some specific ways that God is urging you to gather withother believers for prayer?
  • What are some ways that God is urging you to be generous with your time and resources to help other believers?
