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.
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 Acts 6 we met Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, chosen by God to serve the people. And now we receive a history lesson from Stephen.
Being authentic in one’s faith journey is difficult at times. Peter & the Apostles show us how to keep being authentic in our faith journeys.
We learn from Peter & John how to be courageous. They were regular fishermen who lived with Jesus for 3 years watching and learning directly from Him. They went now simply shared their stories of being with Jesus.
In Acts 2 the disciples receive the Holy Spirit to be witnesses in the world of Jesus Christ. We learn from them how everyone receives God’s grace. How are you sharing your story with others?
The #168Life is living out one’s faith every day all day. Faith shapes who we are in every area of life. It is who we are, not what we do.
Becoming a follower of Jesus involves connecting with other followers of Jesus. We come together in worship, prayer & fellowship to grow closer to God and thereby to one another.
There is a misperception out there that once a person becomes a Christian life becomes easy. Somehow by following God all problems melt away, heartache is not a part of one’s life. This is a lie. Read on to hear the hope found in Jesus.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, as you sit on the verge of growing deeper in your faith do not think you must first learn more or be able to do more before God can use you.
