Why The Early Church Grew


Mt 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

NKJV = Make Disciples


Matt. 28:20 “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

End of the Age


I. Members were Dedicated whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Required for growth

Dedication Crisis today

Jobs

Marriages

2 Cor. 10:5 - submission


Dedication whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Set aside to a purpose

Rom. 12:1-2 “sacrifice”

Commitment

To give in charge or trust

Determination to do the will


II. Purity of Life whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Jas. 1:27 “unspotted from the world” ESV “unstained”

2 Pet. 2:20 “escaped the pollutions of the world”

1 Pet. 2:9-10 called out of darkness


Impure lives cannot attract whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Life of Christian is different

Some members source of reproach

Impurity kills desire to serve God


“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Rom. 8:7-8


III. Fear of God not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Reverence - Terror, Dread

“No place for terror” ???

“No fear in love” 1 Jn. 4:18

“Judgment to Come” is part of the gospel - Acts 24:25


“Everlasting Punishment” not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Hell is a reality

Fear of Going There

Concern about others

Acts 19:17,18 “fear fell on them all” “many believed”


Am I really concerned about the growth of the church ? not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

The church today can grow

Examine our own life


Why The Early Church Grew not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
