Acts

61: The Church Expands

Merlin Miller continues the study of the Book of Acts with the 61st message taken from Acts 23:6-15. The tribune, still uncertain as to the charge against Paul, gets no closer to what he wants to know as the council is thrown into an uproar by another statement made by Paul. As men make their plans and rage against Paul, what is God’s response?

60: The Church Expands

Merlin Miller continues the study of the Book of Acts with the 60th message taken from Acts 22:22-23:5.  As Paul tells his story the crowd has been silent, up until he comes to a certain point.  Suddenly the crowd erupts again, and the Roman tribune is left to use every means possible to determine just what Paul is guilty of!

59: The Church Expands

Merlin Miller continues the study of the Book of Acts with the 59th message taken from Acts 21:40-22:21. The Roman guard rescues Paul from a crowd intent on killing him, but instead of hiding Paul stops the tribune and asks to speak to the crowd. What could he possibly want to tell them? The answer is: his story!

58: The Church Expands

Merlin Miller returns to the study of the Book of Acts with the 58th message taken from Acts 21:27-39. This begins the final section of the book, where the sovereignty of God is once again on display as He expands the reach of the church through ways that most of us would consider just the opposite, including the arrest of Paul.

53: The Church Strengthened

Merlin Miller continues his sermon series from the book of Acts, this 53rd message is taken for Acts 19:21-40.  Paul intends to leave Ephesus to continue strengthening other churches, but before he does there is a riot due to the successful power of the Gospel to change the culture of people.

51: The Church Strengthened

Merlin Miller preaches the 51st sermon from Acts, taken from Acts 19:1-10. Apollos, fully converted, leaves for Corinth but now Paul arrives at Ephesus and does as he always does: immediately begins to powerfully proclaim Jesus. We see new converts, fuller understanding by existing believers, and a powerful demonstration of God’s sovereignty and faithfulness.

50: The Church Strengthened

Merlin Miller returns to the study of book of Acts with the 50th message, taken from chapter 18:23-28. Having returned to where he was sent from, Paul does not stay long but makes another route through existing churches to strengthen them. Almost immediately the attention turns to Ephesus, where the conversion of Apollos will have lasting effects on the church.

47: The Church Expands

Merlin Miller preaches the 47th message from the book of Acts, from Acts 17:22-34. Paul has a chance to speak in the highest court in Athens and he takes full advantage, attempting to reveal to them a God they have as of yet not known, and the way to Him, namely Jesus. What will the results be?

46: The Church Expands

Merlin Miller preaches the 46th message from the book of Acts, from Acts 17:10-21.  With similar results to the Gospel message in Thessalonica, Paul and his companions move on to Berea, and quickly Paul further on to Athens.  The opposition continues, but the Gospel continues to overcome every obstacle.
