Three Keys to Witnessing Like an Apostle

March 18th, 2007 Viewed 2076 times

The effect of the Apostles on the first century landscape was incredible.  They were able to see 3,000 people come to know Christ on Pentecost.  Everywhere they went they saw people following them, coming to Christ, and creating churches.

What is the difference between our time and theirs?  Well, there are few things that they did differently that come to mind, and I’d like to share these observations with you and see if you have some others.

They Spent A Lot of Time in Prayer

After Christ went back to Heaven he gave the Disciples a command to wait for the Spirit.  So, what did they do?  They went back to the Upper Room and prayed.  They did this constantly until the Spirit came on in power– but they didn’t stop praying.  In fact, we see through out Acts that when they were captured, they went back to where everyone was praying.  They realized that they would only be able to do what God wanted them to with His strength.

Godly Wife: How Do You Receive Correction?

January 10th, 2007 Viewed 7358 times

No one that I know of likes to receive correction.  Some people are better than others at knowing what to do with it.  As children of God, we’re supposed to be on the lookout for a brother/sister that has stumbled and be able to help them out of it.

Wouldn’t it be a whole lot easier if everyone received what we had to say gracefully?  Sure.  Of all people, who should we be most open to receiving correction from?  Our spouse.

You see, the Bible says “Rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.” (Proverbs 9:8b)  So the question to you, Godly Wife, is how do you receive correction?

Studying Late

I have to believe that every Christian parent would desire that their child have a love for the Lord.  It’s debatable whether they’d actually desire that their child go into the ministry or be a missionary, but I’m sure that they desire for them to have the same or more love for God as they do.

The question that faces every parent is how to best raise their child to have that desire– especially in the area of education.
