Baptism: A Powerful Illustration- Romans 6:1-4

1024 576 Patrick Wolf
Big idea: Baptism illustrates the ending of your old life without Christ and the beginning of your new life with Christ. 
The ending of your old life! Penalty paid. Sin buried. (1-4a). 

Salvation is a gift. You do nothing to earn it but you must receive it by faith.

If your faith is in J, you are covered by the righteousness of J, not your own.

You prevent abusing grace by owning your identity in Christ.

The beginning of your new life! Raised to walk new (4b). 
Baptism anticipates…
  1. Life change
  2. Lifestyle change
  3. Life eternal
Ephesians 2:1-10

Jesus’ Church Endures- Acts 12:18-25

Big idea: Wickedness abounds but the church will prevail.

The wicked rage (18-19).

The wicked die (20-23).

Prayer that Causes Prison Break- Acts 12:1-17

1024 576 Patrick Wolf

Big idea: God loves to show off his presence, power and provision when we pray.


God hears our earnest prayers (1-5).

Prayer must have in balance two equal realities about God:
God’s omnipotence (power) and God’s sovereignty (will/plan).
Healthy prayer knows God is both powerful and has a plan.

  • We know God is omnipotent so we pray trusting His power. 
  • We know God is sovereign so we pray submitting to His will. 

God rescues us when we pray (6-11).

When you are praying for something, you be ready for God’s rescue: 

  • Wake up to God’s presence (7) 
  • Chains come off so leave them off (7) 
  • Get dressed (8) for action (8) 
  • Follow God out (9-10) 
  • Praise God personally (11)

God grows our faith through prayer (12-17).
