More of Jesus. Less of me.

March 24, 2011


This week we explore Peter’s great sermon found in Acts 3:11-26.  The graphic above is a model depicting the inside of the portico, where this extemporaneous sermon was delivered.

After a lame man was healed and started running around leaping and praising God, it shouldn’t be a surprise that a crowd gathered to see what was happening.  As was usually the case, Peter used this opportunity to take the spotlight off of himself and place it on God.

Join us this Sunday night as we answer these questions and more:

  • Why does Peter shift the crowd’s focus from the miracle to Jesus?
  • What does Peter hope the crowd will take away from the miraculous healing?
  • What is the relationship between healing and repentance in this passage?
  • What does Peter say about the blessing of being God’s chosen people?

If you would care to look ahead, feel free to review our Scripture passage for the week.

Come and join us on Sunday at 5 PM as we CONNECT in shared space at 5413 Blue Ridge Cutoff, as we share a Sermon called “Peter Speaks in Solomon’s Portico”.
