This week continued our series from Acts 3-7 entitled “The Marks of a Healthy Church”
Last week we looked at two marks which were:
I. They get involved with hurting people
II. They are filled with wonder and amazement
This week we looked at three more ways to identify a healthy church.
III. Deflect the glory away from themselves and on to God (vs. 10-11)
“If you can explain it, then God is not in it” -Bob Cook
“It was all God, it was all grace”
IV. Be faithful to speak for God
A. Speak the truth (13-15)
B. Speak truth in Love (vs. 17)
C. Offer People Hope (vs. 19)
V. Listen or heed Gods word completely (21-22)
Questions to ask yourself this week:
Am I involved with people that are hurting?
Am I filled with wonder and amazement over what God is doing?
Am I deflecting glory away from myself and on to God?
Am I faithful to speak for God even when it is difficult?
Am I listening and heeding God’s word completely?
YOUR TURN: WHAT WERE THEY PREACHING WHERE YOU WENT TO CHURCH?
