Morning Message of Motivation

Paul and Barnabas: 12
Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

There are very few “word for word” records of sermons in the Scriptures. Peter’s sermon on the Day of Pentecost is recorded verbatim, as also is his sermon after the healing of the cripple at the Beautiful Gate.
Acts 3:12 NKJV
“So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: “Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk?”

Peter then preached a message that was recorded in 14 verses. This recorded message bore great fruit.
5,000 men saved.
Acts 4:4 NKJV
“However, many of those who heard the word believed; and the number of the men came to be about five thousand.”

Peter’s message on the Day of Pentecost was also recorded verbatim in 26 verses, and 3,000 souls were saved.
Acts 2:41 NKJV
“Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.”

The next sermon recorded verbatim was Stephen’s defence. He was accused of blasphemy, and Stephen’s defence became the longest sermon to be recorded verbatim.
Acts 7:1-2 NKJV
“Then the high priest said, “Are these things so?”
And he said, “Brethren and fathers, listen: The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran,”

Stephen’s sermon was recorded in 52 verses.
Paul’s sermon at Antioch was also recorded verbatim in 26 verses.
They visited the local synagogue and the leaders invited them to speak.
Acts 13:15 NKJV
“And after the reading of the Law and the Prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying, “Men and brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.”

May you have revelation of the truths of the gospel. May you be ready at all times to preach the gospel of Christ, in Jesus’s name.
