Paul’s Pattern for Ministry

November 22, 2020

Acts 14:1-7

 

Last week, we saw that Paul’s ministry included:

  1. Having the right companions
  2. Speaking the truth with conviction
  3. Opposition from the ungodly

 

– v. 3

“Long time therefore abode they…”

  • You can accomplish any task if you stay at it long enough! –  1 Corinthians 15:58
  • Look at Bible examples
    • Noah – building the ark (100-120 years)
    • Moses – delivering the children of Israel (10-12 months)
    • Joshua – conquering the Promise Land (10 years)
    • David – becoming king (7 years)
  • What are you doing?
    • Building a marriage takes time
    • Building a family takes time
    • Discipling others takes time

 

 

– v. 4

There are those who hate truth

This is just reality

  • When Moses left Egypt there was a mixed multitude –  Exodus 12:38
  • Jeremiah referred to himself as a man of strife –  Jeremiah 15:10
  • Jesus’ message caused division –  John 7:43  –  Ephesians 2:8-9  –  Joshua 24:15  –  Exodus 20:11  –  1 Corinthians 5:1-7  –  2 Corinthians 6:17

 

Matthew 2:13  –  Luke 4:28-30  –  Matthew 10:23

  • Believers are told to flee certain sins
  1. Flee fornication – 1 Corinthians 6:18
  2. Flee idolatry –  1 Corinthians 10:14
  3. Flee the love of money –  1 Timothy 6:10-11
  4. Flee youthful lusts –  2 Timothy 2:22

 

Conclusion

Any ministry that is used by God will have these marks:

  1. Determination
  2. Division
  3. Discretion
