Righteousness and Witness

  • by

Pastor Dennis Allan continued our Acts study by walking through the story of Ananias and Sapphira recorded in Acts 5:1-11 (NIV). Ananias and Sapphira want to be leaders and hold positions of honor in the early church, and so they devise a plan to deceive Peter and the apostles. They want to appear good without doing the work of becoming good. They want to create a shortcut to leadership and influence without having to do the work of discipleship. It’s a challenging story, and yet it reminds us that the our kingdom impact is connected to the way we imitate Jesus. Because our righteousness impacts our witness.
