Sermon: ‘The radical love of the Spirit‐filled church’

Series: Acts series 1: The Gospel at work in Jerusalem

Text: Acts 4 v 32 ‐ 5 v 11


1. The radical love of the Spirit‐filled church (4:32‐35)

2. Barnabas: An example of Spirit‐empowered love (4:36‐37)

3. Ananias and Sapphira: A Satan‐inspired counterfeit (5:1‐10)

4. The radical reverence of the Spirit‐filled church (5:11)


The big idea: The unity and fellowship of believers is a result of the Holy Spirit’swork, but when it is mimicked for personal glory, it is a lie to God.
