actions confirm faith
Actions confirm faith
  • Steadfast in the Apostles Doctrine
  • Fellowship
  • Breaking of bread
  • Prayer
  • Fear coupled with signs and wonders
  • Together, all things in common
  • Sold everything so that everyone had all their needs met
steadfast in the apostles doctrine
Steadfast in the Apostles Doctrine
  • Hebrews 10:19-25
  • 2 Tim 2:14-19
  • Luke 8:12
  • Col 3:16
fellowship
Fellowship
  • Matthew 18:19-20
  • House churches, informal gatherings, dinner
  • A society, a communion, a brotherhood, all led by the Holy Spirit
  • All focused on celebration of the majesty of Jesus, the testimonies of His Great Name
breaking of bread
Breaking of Bread
  • May seem insignificant today, but was significant back then
  • Casts, classes, and backgrounds were all segregated
  • Mutual breaking of bread transcended cultural and societal boundaries
prayer
Prayer
  • The horsepower of every believer
  • How often do you pray during fellowship?
  • Is it as core to your marriage as any other marital activity?
  • Is your prayer life strong or weak right now?
  • The disciples recognized that this was their position of strength
fear coupled with signs and wonders
Fear Coupled with Signs and Wonders
  • The two were linked
  • We have become very familiar with God, tending to complacency and a lack of reverence
  • Psalm 2:11, Psalm 25:14, Psalm 34:9, Prov 9:10,
  • Over and over, the Lord used His prophets to preach a recurring message…why don’t you fear?
all things in common
All things in common
  • There is the obvious physical implication
    • If you have need, why don’t you ask
    • If someone asks, why don’t you serve
  • This isn’t just superficial, it is deeper
  • From a spiritual perspective, do you share, in confidence, your weaknesses and pray to be healed….
sold all so that needs were met
Sold all so that needs were met
  • First question….does God want you to sell everything?
  • Keep in mind need versus want – some needs are just wants
  • Be discerning first, then insure needs are met
action confirms our faith
Action confirms our Faith
  • Time for a fearless self inventory
  • Do you forsake the gathering together of the saints? Do you have a steady diet of the Word?
  • When you gather, do you pray, have true fellowship, or just “hang out time”
  • Do you reverence and fear the Lord?
  • Are you vulnerable to others and trust worthy when someone is vulnerable
  • Are you willing to give of something to meet someone else’s need?
