How have you put up a wall and excluded people from the Kingdom of God, rather than act in obedience to include more people?
When was the last time you responded well to the prompting of the Holy Spirit?
Would you die for your faith, if it came down to it? Would you be willing to stand up for your faith in God, no matter the cost? Sometimes Christian believers go through unimaginable trials, but God is with us and will never leave us.
How do you choose people to hire in your company? How do you represent yourself when seeking employment? These leadership events that occurred in Acts 6 are enlightening enough to our faith, that they model Godly character for us to live by.
Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the shepherds’ encounter with angels who announce the birth of Jesus the Messiah. Though terrified, their lives went from outcast feelings of unworthiness, inadequacy, and being unloved. Our lives are transformed by the work of Jesus also.
