Acts 8:5-25 You Canít Buy Godís Power Summary: Have you ever wanted to be popular or liked by others? Has it ever led you to do something you should not? Today we learn about a man in the Bible named Simon who loved the praise of people. He did magic and people were amazed by him. But when real power from God was shown through a man named Philip, it revealed Simonís heart- he wanted the praise of people more than he wanted Jesus! Letís think about it more: Outline: 1. Stand in awe of God and His power 2. Beware of the temptation to use God to pursue our own greatness 3. Attempt great things for God, to bring glory to God Verse: Psalm 62:11-12a 11 Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God, 12 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love. Discussion Questions: 1. How was Simon tempted to buy Godís power? What did that reveal about his spiritual condition? How might we be tempted to control or manipulate God for our own benefit? 2. How was Simon corrupted by a pursuit of power? What might the desire for power, greatness or influence be dangerous for you? 3. How we might be amazed and taken in by supernatural experience more than amazed by Jesus and the glory of His grace?
