"...they departed from the presence of the Council rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His Name." Acts 5: 41 This morning, we see God's mighty hand at work, keeping His church save, sound and fearless as ever! And that He will do for you too, dear faithful one! And for all His dear church! Let's take a look... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"Peter and the other apostles answered and said: 'We must obey God rather than men.'" Acts 5: 29 Christians are expected to honor officials and obey the laws of the land. But there does come a time when the Christian will say 'no'. When he must choose between obeying God's clear commands and the commands of men. This morning Pastor Dave Johnson explores this crucial moment in the early ministry of the Apostles. Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA.

"Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life." Acts 5: 20 NKJV Acts 5 has to be the most seeker-unfriendly episode in the history of the church! But God was not about to let hypocrisy infiltrate his fledgling congregation! With the demise of Ananias and Sapphira, God had purified HIs church, and oh what a powerful force it became!  Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"But Peter said: 'Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit?'" Acts 5: 3 NKJV Acts 5 has to be a text for the most seeker unfriendly service in the history of the church! But, if this story is unsettling to you, or shocking, that is a good thing!  Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA  From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"...and when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken..." Acts 4: 31 As the world hangs heavy under the turmoil and the lawlessness, we are hearing it over and over: "I can't think of one happy thing." Oh, but we're Christians, dear ones! So how should we respond? Wouldn't you know? Our brave church in Acts 4 does it just right! Let's learn from them today.   Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne Orange CA From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God.

"Whether it is right, in the sight of God, to listen to you more than to God, you be the judge." Acts 4: 19 We continue our study of the 'brave Church': people so inspired and empowered that nothing was going to stop them now. Not that many wouldn't try! This morning, the 'authorities' tried to forbid them to even 'utter' the name of Jesus. What a laugh! Let's take a look... Message by Asst.

"...for there is no other name under heaven, given among men, by which we must be saved." Acts 4: 12  How apt that question the jealous rulers of the people posed to Peter when he so miraculously healed the lame man: "By what power or in what name have you done this?" Oh! So glad they asked! That powerful name the subject of our message this morning.

"Repent and be converted that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord." Acts 3: 19 That day on the Temple steps, Peter was preaching to the very enemies of Christ! "You who killed the Prince of Life..."! (Acts 3: 15) But--oh!--God was calling them too! He calls all of us to action, with the promise of a new life!  Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA  From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"...so he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them, walking leaping and praising God." Acts 3:8 The lame man Peter healed that day, had been in that condition "since his mother's womb" (Acts 3: 2). In other words, he was 'born that way', to be lame was 'his nature'. And everyone knows there is no changing that, right? Oh, hold on! Here comes the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, with all the power to bless and transform anyone who is "born that way".  Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Senior Pastor at Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA  From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lover of God
