The Good News (Gospel) of God brings us forgiveness, healing, deliverance, and the indwelling gift of the Spirit!

(1) What is the Good News (Gospel)? *verses 30-32*

*Signs & Wonders accompany the Gospel, not lead us! Mark 16:1

(2) The apostles were preaching the Gospel at great cost (chp.3; 5:18; 5:40 - arrested 2x & flogged). Are we sharing the Gospel? List those you can prayer for and look for an opp. to share

(3) How did God rescue them from persecution? *verses 34-39* God used Gamaliel, one of the Pharisees, to defend them! Even though they were flogged, they went rejoicing to bear suffering!
