The Lord Jesus Reigns at Philippi (Acts 16:11-40)

Acts Sermon Series at Elmira Christian Center

The kingdom of God, under the saving rule of Jesus Christ, is the reality to which all history is headed—a new heaven and earth, and a redeemed humanity experiencing the blessing of fellowship with God and one another forever. But this kingdom is also a present reality. The saving rule of Jesus is experienced today by those who confess him as Lord in repentance and faith. As the gospel is proclaimed and God rescues sinful rebels by his grace, his kingdom continues to break into our world. In this sermon, Pastor Matt preaches that the saving power of God liberates all who believe in Jesus from the kingdom of this world. And Luke’s eyewitness account of how the Lord Jesus began to reign at Philippi is a powerful demonstration of this truth.
