Tues 090315 am Acts 4 Lk 15

Acts 4
4.8-12 Peter's confession is choice.
Rulers of the people
and elders of Israel,
that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
whom you crucified,
whom God raised from the dead,
by Him this man stands here before you whole.
This is the 'stone which was rejected by the builders,
which has become the chief cornerstone.'
Nor is there salvation in any other,
for there is no other name under heaven
given among men
by which we must be saved. Peter calls them out. He names them specifically, contrasts their rejection of Christ with God' s approval by raising Him from the dead. He emphasized that the "builders" had rejected their only hope for salvation.
4.29 grant your servants boldness... It is instructive that they did not pray for the persecution to stop, but that they would be bold to press through with boldness.
2.32 one heart and one soul... This is a good standard to aspire to and a great mindset to work toward.

Luke 15
15.1 It's a good thing that this Man receives sinners.
15.20 I love the lost and found stories in this chapter. saw him and felt compassion. It is something that we "older brothers" have to remember and keep in mind. There is a difference between feeling compassion and approving of foolish sinfulness.
