Stephen’s Sermon

Stephen’s Sermon and the Sovereignty of God
(Acts 7:1-53)

I. The Message
A. Israel’s history reveals God’s sovereign grace. (Isaiah 66:1-2)
B. Israel’s history reveals their own inclination to reject God’s gracious dealings with them.
C. Israel’s history reveals their pattern of limiting worship to a place. (Jeremiah 7:9-10)

II. The Application
A. We should rejoice in and proclaim the message of God’s amazing grace. (Ephesians 2:4-5)
B. We should guard against presuming on God’s grace by falling into a pattern of sin. (1 Corinthians 10:6-10; Jude 4; Titus 2:11-12)
C. We should guard against going through the motions while our heart is far from God. (1 Samuel 16:7)
D. We should be concerned about bearing witness to the truth. (Ephesians 4:15)
