These notes accompany the sermon found here.

Introduction

  • Today’s Text: Acts 21:27-36.
  • See previous sermons, “Thy Will Be Done,” and “The Bond of Peace.”

The Tools of Our Enemy

  • Misrepresentation
  • False Accusations
    • “No foreigner may enter within the barricade which surrounds the sanctuary and enclosure. Anyone who is caught so doing will have himself to blame for his ensuing death.”
  • Exaggeration
    • See John 8:44; 1 John 2:22; Revelation 21:8; Genesis 3:1-7; Ephesians 2:1-3.
  • Violence
    • See Luke 21:12-19; John 15:20; 1 Peter 5:8.
  • Confusion
    • See Acts 19:32; James 1:14-15.
  • Rabble-rousing
    • See Acts 17:5.

The Tools of Our Lord

  • See Philippians 1:19-26; Acts 19:21, 23:11.
  • Everything! See Psalm 115:3; Proverbs 21:1; Isaiah 46:10, 55:11; Ephesians 1:11; Romans 8:28; Revelation 4:11.

How do we equip ourselves for such situations? 

  • Abide in Christ.This is outlined in John 15.
  • Commune with God in prayer. Ephesians 3:14-21, 6:10-20.
  • Let His Word abide in you. Like John 12:31, the ruler of this world is defeated.
  • Commune with the saints of God.
    • See Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.
    • All New Testament promises are provided through the context of a local church.

 

How will I respond to today’s sermon?
