Sunday Message: Your Role in God’s Church

August 16, 2020

Today’s Reading: Acts 6:1-7

 So the preaching about God flourished, the number of the disciples in Jerusalem multiplied greatly, and a large group of priests became obedient to the faith.

Acts 6:7

Come to our Sunday Outdoor Worship Service OR Listen to Rev. Solomona’s sermon from today’s 10AM Sunday Worship Livestream on our Facebook Page, www.facebook.com/ccmla. Reflect on the Text Notes and Life Notes below.

NOTE: We will not have Monday Life Group meetings for the month of August. We will relaunch in September. Stay tuned for details!

Sermon Main Idea: Every Church member is in Church ministry.

Text Notes:

  • The Problem (v.1)
    • Hellenistic (Greek) Jews vs. Hebrew (Native) Jews
      • “Contemporary” vs. “Traditional”
    • Hellenistic widows overlooked in daily food distribution
  • The Plan (v.2-4)
    • The apostles do the following:
      • prioritize their call to preach God’s Word
      • mobilize the congregation to organize God’s Church
    • The congregation must select seven men who are:
      • In the Church
      • Of good reputation
      • Full of the Spirit
      • Wise
  • The Product (v.5-7)
    • The Church is united in fulfilling a ministerial need
    • Seven Greek Jews selected and appointed
    • The work of God’s Church grew

Life Notes:

  • Every ministry in God’s Church supports the preaching of God’s Word.
  • Get involved in Church community to be involved in Church ministry.

Prayer: Almighty God, thank You for the ways that You grow Your Church. Thank You for allowing me to be even a small part of what You do in the world. As I follow You Lord, please help me to see how You are calling me to serve You. Grant me the courage and strength to follow where You are leading, that I would give glory to You. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN.
