Sermons on Spiritual Growth
Acts 12 | Peter, as well as the rest of the disciples, had been warned to stop teaching about Jesus in the Temple. In fact, many of them had been arrested already. And the executions have started. Peter is arrested awaiting his turn to be beheaded when prayer prompts God to intervene!
Acts 9 | The leadership of the Temple in Jerusalem has sent out a young rabbi named Saul. His job was to get a handle on the growth of this new movement proclaiming Jesus as the long awaited Messiah. He was to use all means necessary to do so, including arresting people to bring back to Jerusalem for trial.
