    'All We Need' by Pastor Vern

    March 17, 2017

    Acts 3: 1-10                                       

    Responding to the needs of others is always a challenge. Most time we feed quite inadequate to try and respond to the situation. Our relationship with Jesus provides insight into how to get the job done.

    Background – Acts 2: 42-47

    • The new church is learning how to get along
    • They are gathering for fellowship and instruction
    • They are learning how to worship together
    • They are giving attention to what the Lord wants in their lives
    • They are learning how to share what they have together
    • They are learning how to look after each other
    • People are responding to this kind of gathering and bring others

    1 Jesus is what I need – vrs 1

    • Peter and John are going to the temple
    • They are focused on worship and learning
    • They are cultivating their personal walk with Jesus
    • They are joining with others who share a similar passion
    • They have some of the same motivation that brings us here today

    2 Jesus is what others need – vrs 2-3     

    • A crippled man is calling out to them
    • He is asking for help to face the challenges of life
    • He is desperate for solution
    • He has exhausted every other option
    • He is looking to them for money because that is all he can do

    3 Jesus is what I can give – vrs 6    

    • Peter says he is not in a position to respond to the monetary option
    • Peter says what he does have he can give away
    • Jesus commands us to share our faith and life with others
    • Jesus invites us to invest His Name
    • The beggar is healed and begins to run in celebration

    Application

    • As we repent of our sin we are refreshed – vrs 19     
    • ‘Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven by which we        can be saved’ Acts 4:12       
    • With the results of changed lives people could tell that they had been with Jesus – Acts 4:13    

    o   All To Jesus – Robert Morgan – Day 66

    o   Countenance – ‘the way one contains oneself’

    o   What is in our hearts is reflected on our faces

    o    ‘The way we think in our hearts shows up on our faces’

    o   Prov 15:3 ‘A joyful heart makes a face cheerful’

    o   What does our face show today? – Faith or concern, joy or worry, confidence or fear?
