Undeniable Obedience

 

Acts 4:13 

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, 

and perceived that they were uneducated, common 

men, they were astonished. And they recognized that 

they had been with Jesus. 

 

1. You Become a Different Person 

 

Ezekiel 36:26- And I will give you a new heart, and a 

new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the 
heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of 
flesh. 

 

2. You Imitate Christ 

   1 Corinthians 4:16- I urge you, then, be imitators of 
me. 

 

3. You are Known for Good Works                                                       
Ephesians 2:10- For we are his workmanship, created 
in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared 
beforehand, that we should walk in them.
