In Pt. 5 of Power & Persecution, Pastor Chad examines the rest of Acts 5 showing us that as God's power increased on the early church, so did persecution. In this sermon, we learn how Jesus fulfilled His promise to these early believers from Acts 1:8 that power would come upon them to be His witnesses, beginning in Jerusalem.
Pastor Chad challenges us by asking if we have the power of God in our own lives to face hardships, difficult seasons and even persecution and to remain a faithful witness of Christ. He shows how the true power of God was not just in the signs and miracles, but in the fact that they were persecuted and "counted themselves worthy to suffer for the Name."
