Message #351: “A Fellow Laborer’s Farewell Instructions” Part 2 - Acts 20:25-38 November 25, 2018 Last week we tackled the subject of how understanding what Paul would not be moved from can both encourage and instruct us to follow in his Christ-like example. This week we will study the Scriptures to understand why an eternal/biblical perspective of this life is essential for a true disciple of Christ to live and die well. James 1:22 encouragement- In the church today it is not uncommon for us to profess belief in the Lord Jesus Christ and in His resurrection, while at the same time live as if there is no resurrection. In other words it’s possible to agree with the truth - but that truth have no effect on the way we think or how we make decisions on what we pursue. But we can find great encouragement and sound instruction by studying the life of the apostle Paul. Join us in this week’s study as we look to learn from and follow Paul’s example of an eternal/biblical perspective: one that effected everything from the way he lived among those whom he served alongside in Ephesus, down to where he would go by the leading of the Lord. Related verses: Hebrews 12:1-2 1 Corinthians 15:13-19 Ecclesiastes 2:1-11 Luke 12:15 1 Thessalonians 4, 5 2 Thessalonians 1 1 Corinthians 3 2 Corinthians 13:5

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!

Message #348 "Be Flexible, Be Alert" part two - Acts 20:7-16 Sunday, November 4 2018 Last week we began studying Acts 20 and addressed the question of why do I need to be in flexible in following God's will? This week we'll zero in on verses 7 - 16 and answer the question of why is it such a battle to stay alert as we walk with Jesus? James 1:22 encouragement- Those who have served the Lord in any capacity learn quickly about the battles that accompany our service. Ministry is often times attended with various forms of difficulty: It may be a sense of loneliness and weariness (like Elijah); sometimes the willingness to walk with and serve Jesus is present, and yet we find our flesh is weak (like the disciples); other times the challenges come in the form of people influencing us away from God, and let's not forget our own hearts which can easily deceive us (like Sampson). You're invited to join us in this week's study on how to remain alert in our walk with Jesus!

Message #347 "Be Flexible, Be Alert" part one - Acts 20:1-16 Sunday, October 28 2018 Last week we finished Acts 19 and answered two questions: why our relationship with Jesus is both private and public, and what should I see as my life grows in Christlikeness? This week we're beginning Acts chapter 20 and focusing our study on one question, "Why do I need to be in flexible in following God's will?" James 1:22 encouragement- There are times in our relationship with Jesus, where in the process of doing His will we experience the unexpected: change of plans, disappointments, opposition, adversity, even suffering and loss. How should we respond? Are you frustrated with how your plans to do God's will are getting delayed, redirected, interrupted, or altered? Then join us in this week's study on God's purpose in teaching us to be flexible in following His will!

Message #346 "If I Am Lifted Up" - Acts 19:22-41 Sunday, October 21 2018 Last week we studied Acts 19:21 using 2 Timothy 3:16-17 as a template to study it in depth. Our focus was how to see God's will and His timing in accomplishing His will, through the lens of His character. This week we'll study to understand why our relationship with Jesus is both private and public. We'll also tackle the question of what should I see as my life grows in Christlikeness? James 1:22 encouragement- Looking at the riot that occurs in Ephesus in response to the lives Jesus changed, we can see how there can be very different responses to the impact of the gospel in a community. Some are deeply transformed by God's grace, so much so it changes what they invest their time, talents, and treasures. Others see the radical changes as a threat to their own way of life apart from God. Need encouragement to grow in both your private and public worship of the Lord Jesu Christ, while developing biblical expectations to how people will respond? Then join us as we continue our study in Acts!
