It is key for each follower to remember that our job is to share the Gospel authentically.
We learn in Acts 18 the importance of learning from more mature followers of Jesus. They can teach us from their own experiences how to live The 168 Life for Jesus.
Just because we don’t get what we want after praying doesn’t mean we didn’t receive what we needed. God always provides us with what we need whether we realize it or not.
We see the importance of reading Scriptures in our own lives so that we can hear directly from God. We cannot solely rely on someone else studying the Bible and then teach us what they learned. We learn from teachers of the faith. We also learn from our own time in the Bible hearing from God directly.
In life today we have many creature comforts that can falsely lull us into believing that we can do everything on our own. We do not need God because we have everything that we need. We can take care of ourselves. But that is not true.
Differences. They divide relationships. They keep people apart when individuals land on either side of the difference. But differences do not need to divide.

A key learning from this week’s chapter for us today is the importance to persevere in the face of opposition.
Hear this: You are not alone. As a follower of Jesus Christ you belong to the family of God.
