August 4, 2019 – Dying From Fear

Rev. Brian Johnson

Series: Before and After: Seeing the Big Picture in Scripture

Scripture: Acts 4:32-37; Acts 5:1-11

In the first passage we read today, we hear about the radical generosity that defined the life of the early church.  But, as soon as we read about how they lived, we read about two people who failed to live up to that high standard.  This is a story about the gap that often exists about what we are called to do and what we actually do.

This Week: This story is intense – upsetting even.  How does it make you feel? What does it make you think about God?

This is such a crazy story.  How do you think it might be useful for your faith? How can you learn from this story without giving in to a sense of fear?
