Doing good in the name of Jesus



Great news gets out (Acts)
13 February 2011
Mark Smith
Acts 3:1-4:31

It is said that ‘no good deed goes unpunished’. Is it any different when it comes to good works & words for Christ? What response might we expect if we inundated our community with goodness in the name of Jesus?

Acts 3-4 is dominated by a miraculously good deed to a cripple, which leads to the good news of Christ proclaimed. As Peter proclaims Jesus (the only name given under heaven by which people can be saved) – it doesn’t go unnoticed.  A strong response of both acceptance & opposition are raised. 
 
Ultimately, if we are to do good deeds in the name of Christ – we will need to do it boldly & courageously.
