349: "Defining Move" - Acts 20:17-24

Hits: 20
Message #349 "Defining Move" - Acts 20:17-24 Sunday, November 11 2018 Last week we answered the question of is it such a battle to stay alert as we walk with Jesus? This week we’ll consider what Paul taught/modeled regarding not being moved by chains and tribulations. The primary question we’ll answer is how does understanding what Paul would not be moved from, both encourage and instruct us to follow his Christ-like example? James 1:22 encouragement- It’s often an unspoken expectation that Christians (especially those we perceive as mature) should not be moved or in any way shaken by difficult and painful trials. This creates an unbiblical, and therefore unhealthy, attitude towards expressions of grief or sadness in times of severe testing, loss, or suffering. Ever think you were a second class Christian because everyone else around you seems to breeze through tests and you’re struggling? Then join us in this week’s study to find a word of encouragement and biblical instruction in what the Bible says about being moved, and share this teaching with a brother or sister in Christ who could be blessed by it!
