Overcoming Internal Struggles
Scripture: Acts 5:1–5:11
Lying in the Chapel:
Peter to Ananias: “How could you do a thing like this? You weren’t lying to us but to God!” Acts 5:4 (NLT)
Peter to Sapphira: “How could the two of you even think of conspiring to test the Spirit of the Lord like this?” Acts 5:9 (NLT)
A church that overlooks sin in its midst is in jeopardy…
Good Results of Discipline: “Great fear gripped the entire church…Everyone had high regard for them [believers]…And more and more people were brought to the Lord—crowds of both men and women.” Acts 5:11, 13-14 (NLT)
