Helping Others SHINE

Acts 9:22-31

Proverbs 1:5  |  John 5:39  |  Galatians 1:15-19  |  2 Corinthians 11:32-33  |  Acts 11:25 

What lesson can we learn?

1. Them in the Word – v. 22
He increased the more in strength

Greek = endunamoo = strengthened – in strength 

John 5:39  |  2 Timothy 2:15
Study = to exert one’s self – work hard at – understanding and explaining Scripture 

Here’s why 
2 Timothy 3:16-17

2. Them from the Enemy – v. 23
The Jew’s wanted to kill him 

He was aware of his enemies 
1 Peter 5:8

Make sure your disciples understand who the enemy is 

Not other Christians and not men 
Ephesians 6:12

This is a lie from Satan 

They helped him escape 

1 Corinthians 10:12-13

3. Them to Wait on God 
Saul went to the deserts of Arabia 
Galatians 1:15-19

He was taught by Jesus Himself 

He came back to Damascus 

He escaped in a basket 
2 Corinthians 11:32-33

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, 11

There is a time for everything 

God is not in a hurry

4. Teach Them God Has We Need 
A house on the wall 
Romans 8:28  |  Romans 8:32

5. Introduce Them to Fellow – vv. 25-27
Christians cannot grow alone 

Saul needed to be with believers
Hebrews 10:23-25  |  Matthew 18:20  |  Luke 10:1

Jesus sent His disciples two by two

Christ established the churches because He knew we cannot succeed alone – v. 31

6. Them as They Serve – vv. 26-29
Saul would make mistakes 

Saul was spirit filled 

Saul preached with power 
Acts 1:8  |  Acts 2:16-18

Saul needed the support of his fellow church members in Jerusalem 

It is essential that as a local church, we be supportive of new believers. That we help others grow. If you consider yourself a mature believer, God can use you to advance His kingdom. By you simply determining to reach out to new members receiving them and supporting them. 

 

Conclusion
What do you do with a converted terrorist?
Ground him in the Word

Protect him from the enemy 

Teach him to wait on God

Teach him God has everything we need

Introduce him to fellow believers 

Support him as he ministers to others 

Let’s not think of ourselves but others.
