Acts 15:36–16:40

5 - Assured of Victory, Acts 16:25-40

August 25, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

When God miraculously frees them from prison, Paul and Silas do not take it as an opportunity for their escape, but instead use it as an opportunity to share the gospel. The jailer that had confined them, and all of his household, trust in Christ, and when the rulers realize they had beaten a Roman citizen, Paul insists on a public apology so that the name of Christ would not be discredited. 1. Joy in suffering (v. 25) 2. Hope in fear (vs. 26-30) 3. Faith in Christ (vs. 31-34) 4. Vindication in the end (vs. 35-39) 5.

4 - Willing to Endure, Acts 16:16-24

August 18, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

Following God’s leading does not ensure a smooth and trouble-free life. After setting a young slave girl free of demonic possession, her owners turn on Paul and Silas and drag them before the rulers who have them beaten by rods and thrown in prison. We must be careful not to judge God’s faithfulness by our circumstances, and be willing to endure any hardships that may come as a result of living a faithful life. 1. Consider the source (vs.16-18a) 2. Confront the error (v. 18b) 3. Prepare to be unpopular (vs. 19-21) 4. Be willing to endure (vs. 22-24) The Lord Our God #6518055 by J Ingram & K Stanfill 2013 sixsteps Music, worshiptogether.com Yes I Will #7105442 by E Hoagland, J Smith, and M Fieldes All Essential Music, Be Essential Songs I Will Exalt #5861765 by A Falk 2010 Bethel Music Over All I Know #7105439 by A Rozier, J Ingram & J Cates All Essential Music, Fellow Ships Music Do It Again #7067555 by C Brown, M Brock, M Redman, & S Furtick © Music by Elevation Worship Publishing -------------------------------------------- Love Well Change Lives Through Christ It’s the vision of Woodmen, led by Pastor Josh Lindstrom, in the Pikes Peak area of Colorado Find more at https://woodmenvalley.org or download the Woodmen app at https://subsplash.com/woodmenvalleychapel/app — Connect with Us Website: https://woodmenvalley.org Woodmen Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/woodmen_valley_chapel/ Woodmen Twitter: https://twitter.com/Welcome2Woodmen Woodmen Facebook Pages: Central https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenValleyChapel Heights https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenHeights  Monument https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenMoument   Rockrimmon https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenRockrimmon Southwest https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenSouthwest

3 - Eager to Listen, Acts 16:6-15

August 11, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

Though presented with many opportunities to share the gospel, Paul and Timothy listen to the leading of the Spirit and go to Troas where Paul is confronted with the vision of a man urging them to Macedonia; there they meet Lydia who will trust in Christ and become a supporter of the church. God often leads us in directions we do not immediately understand, but in hindsight can recognize his good and loving purposes. 1. God has plans (vs. 6-8) 2. We need to listen (vs. 9-12) 3.

2 - Commitment to the Message, Acts 16:1-5

August 4, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

When the apostle Paul selects Timothy (born to a Jewish mother and Greek father) to accompany him on his journey, he has Timothy circumcised because of the Jewish populations in the places they were traveling. Paul’s wisdom and Timothy’s willingness reveals a commitment to the gospel message above all. 1. A disciple named Timothy (vs. 1-2) 2. A commitment to the message (v. 3) 3. The growth of the church (vs. 4-5) Songs: Glorious Day #7081388 by J Ingram, J Smith, K Stanfill & S Curran © Fellow Ships Music, Hickory Bill Doc, So Essential Tunes Overcome #7067561 by C Brown, M Brock & S Furtick © Music by Elevation Worship Publishing So Will I (100 Billion X) #7084123 by B Hastings, J Houston & M Fatkin 2017 © Hillsong Music Publishing Hosanna (B.

1 - Confidence in Conflict, Acts 15:36-41

July 28, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

Not every challenge the church faces will come from the outside. At times, good men and women who love Jesus will disagree with one another and it is naïve to think otherwise. As followers of Christ, we must be faithful to what we feel God is leading us to and trust that, even in conflict, God is working all things out according to his plan. 1. The ministry of encouragement (v. 36) 2. A sharp disagreement (vs. 37-39a) 3. The sovereignty of God (vs. 39b-41) 4. Future ministry & reconciliation (2 Timothy 4:11) Songs: More To Come #7123198 by B Younker, K Stanfill, J Ingram & P Wickham 2019 Kristian Stanfill Publishing Designee Only King Forever #7011438 by M Brock, C Brown, S Furtick & W Joye 2013 Sony/ATV Tree Publishing Resurrecting #7051507 by C Brown, M Brock, M Ntele, S Furtick & W Joye 2015 © Be Essential Songs Make A Way #7028394 by J Ingram & J Egan © Integrity Worship Music What A Beautiful Name #7068424 by B Fielding & B Ligertwood 2016 Hillsong Music Publishing -------------------------------------------- Love Well Change Lives Through Christ It’s the vision of Woodmen, led by Pastor Josh Lindstrom, in the Pikes Peak area of Colorado Find more at https://woodmenvalley.org or download the Woodmen app at https://subsplash.com/woodmenvalleychapel/app — Connect with Us Website: https://woodmenvalley.org Woodmen Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/woodmen_valley_chapel/ Woodmen Twitter: https://twitter.com/Welcome2Woodmen Woodmen Facebook Pages: Central https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenValleyChapel Heights https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenHeights  Monument https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenMoument   Rockrimmon https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenRockrimmon Southwest https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenSouthwest
