TAKING A STAND

 

Acts 5:17-42

The Model Church, Lesson #11

 

       When was the last time you had to take a stand about something and why?

       Why do people vary in the number and types of stands they take?

       How do we know when to take a stand and when not to?

       When does Jesus want us to take a stand?

 

The early church was growing (verses 14-16). The leadership in Jerusalem was unhappy and wanted to silence the church. The Apostles were threatened. It was time to take a stand.
