IT IS TUESDAY, WHICH MEANS TOMORROW IS THE GATHERING!!I hope you guys have a great Tuesday. I hope you guys are being bold today. I hope that you guys are making the name of Jesus famous today. I hope you guys are keeping the family name honored today.
Scripture: Read with me Acts 8 today.
Observation: What is the primary meaning of this passage written by Luke? What does this passage teach us about who God is? What does the passage teach us about who we are? What does this passage teach us about what God has done? Make sure we notice the boldness of the early church as they were scattered and persecuted. Make sure we notice that the early church focuses on Jesus. Think about what they did when they were scattered. They took and shared the "good news." They shared the gospel with people. Then make sure we notice the importance of baptism. Philip was talking with the eunuch man, and he believed in Jesus. then he took it upon himself to make his profession public.
Application: Focus on making it personal. What does this passage mean for you at this specific moment in your life? Are you praying for wisdom from God? Are you being bold. Are you seeking Jesus out in your life. Are you seeking to share the good news with people?
Pray: Take some time and pray for your friends. Take some time and pray for those friends that you know do not believe in Jesus. Take some time and pray for your teachers today, they may or may not have a relationship with Jesus. Take some time and pray for your acquaintances today, people you might barely know.
