Pastor James Zaebst

Acts 28:17 and 18; Paul had been falsely accused of sedition, polluting the Temple and teaching contrary to Moses Law. Paul had been turned over to the Roman Authorities who pronounced him innocent of all charges laid against him (Acts 26:30-32).

Acts 28:19: The Jews  demanded  his death in spite of his very obvious innocence (Acts 23:28-30).

Acts 28:20: Paul tells why he is imprisoned.  He  is  in  chains because he believes God has kept His promise by giving Israel their long promised Messiah in the Person of Christ (Romans 11:7).

Three Stages of a Proper Christian Life

I Thessalonians 1:5:  This is where it all starts.  They heard the Gospel, and they believed it for salvation.  Everyone starts out by getting saved (Romans 10:13 and 14).  Sadly, some just stay here.  They have no desire to grow (I Peter 2:2).  Tragically, they remain babes in Christ (I Corinthians 3:2 and 3).  Some merely rejoice in the simple Gospel message, but never go on to serve the Lord in a meaningful way.

David's Error

Pastor James Zaebst

I Chronicles 21:1 and 2:  Satan Tempts us to put our trust in that which we possess.  It is his desire that we trust in our own efforts and in all we can accumulate.  We are to trust in God alone (Luke 12:13-21).

I Chronicles 21:3:  Joab gives David Godly council.  Nothing is of more value than solid Godly council (Proverbs 11:14).  Joab reminds David that the people are not his; they are the Lord’s people (Exodus 4:22).

Ephesians 2:1 and 2: Some wrongly conclude that at some point they went looking for God (Romans 3:10-12). God went looking for you (John 6:44). He found you when you were yet His enemy (Romans 5:10 and Colossians 1:21).
