Overcoming Internal Struggles

February 19, 2017 Pastor: Jim Swaney Series: On Fire

Scripture: Acts 5:1–5:11

Lying in the Chapel:

Peter to Ananias: “How could you do a thing like this? You weren’t lying to us but to God!” Acts 5:4 (NLT)
Peter to Sapphira: “How could the two of you even think of conspiring to test the Spirit of the Lord like this?” Acts 5:9 (NLT)

A church that overlooks sin in its midst is in jeopardy…

Good Results of Discipline: “Great fear gripped the entire church…Everyone had high regard for them [believers]…And more and more people were brought to the Lord—crowds of both men and women.” Acts 5:11, 13-14 (NLT)

ACTION POINTS:

1. Holy God takes sin seriously.

2. Reverence for holy God is healthy.

3. A Healthy Church takes care of its problems.

4. A Healthy Church flourishes.
