Acts 6:1-7

Acts 6:1-7

Acts 6:7Vintage message from November 24, 1996.

“What has God called us to do? What is our call to this world? Same as Jesus’s: to love the world, to love the lost. Not to go out and pick fights with them, and not to go out and slam them into the ground, not to put them down for what they believe…
He is not hindered by the things that I do, and He is not hindered by the things I don’t do, and He doesn’t need me to protect Him. He has simply and only asked me to be a vessel that He can dwell in, to allow His Spirit to work through, to be a witness to the world…He’s asked me to love those around me…We need to let God fight His own battles and just be used by Him. Watch what He does and then when He proves Himself to be true, let’s follow Him…
See what happens when the apostles were faithful to allow the Holy Spirit to resolve the problem instead of them resolving the problem? When the Holy Spirit is involved in the lives of the men and women who do the ministry within the church, within the body, when the Holy Spirit is leading and directing them, then others catch on fire, too. Others grow in faith. Others begin to give their lives over to the Lord.”
