Introduction: The book of Acts is the second part of a two-part work written by Luke, the beloved physician. In the first part, his Gospel, Luke, a Gentile, portrays Christ as the Savior of the world. In the second part, the book of Acts, Luke writes about the Acts of the Apostles in establishing Christ's church and initiating within it a worldwide evangelistic movement in obedience to Christ's Great Commission.
Acts 3:1-11 — True Christian charity, which results in the adoration of Christ and the admiration of His church, is transformative, a hand up, not toxic, a handout.
Acts 4:12 — Our God-given salvation is found in God's Son, Jesus Christ, and in Jesus Christ alone.
Acts 4:12 — Apart from Jesus, no other name will do, not Confucius, not Buddha, not Vishnu, not Mohammed, not Allah, etc.
Acts 5:13 — Repentance is God-given, never self-induced. We cannot muster it up within ourselves, no matter how hard we grit our teeth or clinch our fists. It, like its accompanying salvation, is a divinely granted gift of God’s amazing grace. (Acts 11:18)
Acts 10:4 — Our conscientious prayers are God’s cherished memories. They are mustered by the Almighty into a monumental memorial before Him!
Acts 10:34 — Most manmade religions worship discriminating deities who favor certain ethnicities in localized vicinities, but the Christian Faith is a nondiscriminatory faith worshiping a God who is no respecter of persons.
Acts 10:43 — The prerequisite for God’s forgiveness of our sins is our belief in Jesus’ name, which means “the salvation of Jehovah.” To believe salvation is found apart from faith in Christ alone is to forfeit all hope of God's forgiveness of your sins.
Acts 11:18 — Repentance is God-given, never self-induced. We cannot muster it up within ourselves, no matter how hard we grit our teeth or clinch our fists. It, like its accompanying salvation, is a divinely granted gift of God’s amazing grace. (Acts 5:31)
Acts 12:5-17 — The angel that fetched Peter out of prison was fetched for by a praying church.
Acts 13:22 — A man after God’s own heart lives his own life in accordance with God’s will and in adherence to God’s Word. To fail to do so is to prove your possession of an impassive heart toward God.
Acts 17:10 — Since we owe our existence to God, we are the offspring of God.
Acts 19:1-7 — Faithfully following your present understanding of Scripture will be rewarded with future and further spiritual enlightenment, not to mention the Holy Spirit Himself, who will enable you to live it out and to live up to it.
Acts 26:13-14 — The closer you get to the light the holier God becomes and the humbler you’ll be. In the light, no one struts around, but everyone bows down.
Acts 27:20-26 You must hear God in the nights of life to believe Him in the tempests of life. Then, and only then, can you be sure of all God has said, in spite of the storms squalling all around you.
