I Will Lead My Family and Friends to be Healthy Church Members

(sermon begins: 39:05)

 

  • Be involved with your family at church
  • Pray and talk with your family at home.
  • Serve with family in the world.

 

1.God steers a moving car a lot better than a parked one.
Acts 13:1-3
Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.

When you are faithful in the little things, God blesses you with greater things.

 

2. When others mess up, don’t you give up
It is never too late to become what God intended you to be.
Acts 15
“Barnabas took John Mark with him and sailed for Cyprus,”
“Several days later Paul suggested to Barnabas that they return again to Turkey”
“and visit each city where they had preached before, to see how the new converts were getting along.”
“Barnabas agreed and wanted to take along John Mark.”
“Paul didn’t like that idea at all, since John had deserted them in Pamphylia.”
“Their disagreement over this was so sharp that they separated.”
“Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed for Cyprus.”
