Small Group Questions (Whole Group):
Read Acts 5:12-32
In Acts 5:1-11, God dealt with sin. What effect did this have on non-believers (Acts 5:13)? What does this say about the mentality of a church that is “just going after numbers”, that is, just wants to bring in as many people as possible?
Compare Peter’s sermon in Acts 5:29-32 with his sermon (to the same audience) in Acts 4:8-12. What is the difference? What does this say about how you should witness?
Share something crazy God called you to do. How did you know that was what He wanted? Why did you think it was crazy at the time? How did obedience work out for you?
Pray for one another.
