Some Thoughts on Acts 3:1-10

I led the Bible study last night at our Neighborhood Group in Millvale. As they walk the journey toward becoming a church over the next 6 months they are going through the Book of Acts. Here were some of my thoughts from last night on Acts 3:1-10:

We will give & see the world out of what we have & who we’re with.

  1. You cannot give what you do not have.
    • Jim Elliot, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
    • Peter & John were not going to the Temple looking to heal someone. It was a normal routine and they simply gave out of what they had.
  2. You will see the world through the eyes of your habits.
    • My habits help dictate my perspective.
    • Habits aren’t a bad thing, God made us that way. We just have to be careful that our habits are contributing to the worldview we desire.
  3. Where you find community will impact what your habits are.
    • We all have a built in desire for community and relationships.
    • When our parents told us “We will become like those we hang out with”, they were right.
    • The voices we listen to in our lives will greatly impact what we do.
    • Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

Ask Yourself these three questions:

  • Do I currently have what I want to give?
  • Are the habits in my life contributing to the worldview I desire?
  • Am I building relationships with those that will spur me onto growth?
