Sermon Notes

Preacher: Jeremiah Fyffe


1. DEFENDING THE WORKS OF THE SPIRIT

2. JESUS: ATTESTED, DELIVERED, CRUCIFIED, RAISED

3. THEY WERE CUT TO THE HEART


What is the result of this most amazing manifestation of the Holy Spirit of God?

1. A clear, reasoned, biblical, impassioned declaration of Jesus and a call to repentance and faith.


Numbers 11:29

But Moses said to him, “Would that all the LORD’s people were prophets, that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!”


1 Corinthians 12:13

For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.


Luke 1:3–4

it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught.


R. C. Sproul

[Peter] did not ask people to circumvent their intelligence, because the gospel that moves the heart gets to the heart through the mind.


R. C. Sproul

That is my dream—a laity empowered by God, one that is not satisfied with hiring professionals to do the work of ministry but will come when their neighbor is in need and pray as priests for their friends.

QUESTION 1

Peter begins his sermon saying, "Let this be known to you (Acts 2:14)." As R. C. Sproul puts it, "R. C. Sproul
[Peter] did not ask people to circumvent their intelligence, because the gospel that moves the heart gets to the heart through the mind." Practically, what are ways you engage your mind in listening to sermons and reading the Bible?

QUESTION 2

Verse 23 says both that Jesus was delivered according to the definite plan of God and that the listeners were responsible for killing Jesus. How does this passage seem to handle the relationship between the sovereignty of God and human responsibility?

QUESTION 3

Read v37-38. On Sunday Jeremiah said that there are three ways to respond to being confronted with our sin. 1) You can pretend it didn’t happen (pretending). 2) You can beat yourself up (performing). 3) You can repent (faith). As much as we know the last answer is the correct response, we often find ourselves reverting to the first two responses. What are ways you have found yourself pretending or performing, and how do you fight for faith in the power of the resurrection of Jesus and his gospel.
