Acts Lesson 9: “Obedient”
Motivation: In this lesson we have two contrasting personalities; Simon the magician who claimed to be from God contrasted with Philip, the deacon and evangelist, who was sent from God. Comparing the men helps us evaluate those who claim spiritual leadership today.
Acts Lesson 8: “Selfless”
Motivation: Sharing Jesus was the priority of the early church. It took precedence over every other demand. In this study we’ll see not only the priority of evangelism but its price and the change it makes in people.
Acts Lesson 7: “Faithful”
Motivation: Often we view prosperity as a sign of God’s approval while hardship is seen as His discipline. However, in this passage, we find the Apostles in jail and later being flogged, but absolutely in the will of God. This is a lesson in faithfulness.

Acts Lesson 6: “Integrity”
Motivation: Earlier in Acts 4, persecution came to the church resulting in a purity of fellowship. However, a new attack is revealed in Chapter 5, that of people who wanted to “play church” and treat God’s Bride like any other fraternal organization. Serious consequences are introduced for those believe the church of God only consists of human leaders, that she is a democracy rather than a theocracy.

Acts Lesson 5: “Courageous”
Motivation: A noted financier said that two things are need in his field: the wisdom to make the correct call and the courage to implement it. Fortunately, these two ingredients necessary for a successful life, wisdom and courage, are available for the asking! In fact, God implores us to ask Him for wisdom (James 1:17) and in this lesson we see the disciples asking for boldness.
