The Church in Acts - Cleansing

Published: Sunday, 23 August 2015

Psalm 139:1-4, 23-24, Acts 5:1-11


Acts 5:11 (NIV2011)
11  Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events.

Acts 5:11 (MSG)
11  By this time the whole church and, in fact, everyone who heard of these things had a healthy respect for God. They knew God was not to be trifled with.

God is a perfect and can’t tolerate sin, and yet he loves us and sent Jesus to deal with sin and make us clean. In order for that to happen, we need to acknowledge:
•    Our motives reveal our heart        Acts 4:36-5:2, James 4:1-3
•    God knows our heart            Acts5:3-4, 1 Samuel 16:7


•    The problem is fatal            Acts 5:5-6, Romans 6:23
•    Only Jesus can cleanse us        John 13:6-9, 1 John 1:8-9
Are you willing to allow Jesus to cleanse your heart today?

Psalm 139:23-24 (NIV2011)
23  Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24  See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
