God Blesses The Church
Topic: The Book of Acts Passage: Acts 9:31-43
Sometimes as we minister at our respective churches we think that the success of my church rides on my and a few others shoulders. The reality is that it is the Lord's Church and He can bless and or withhold blessing. The Lord loves His Church and He calls His people to be used of Him in the work of the Church. Peter was told by Jesus that he would be an important part in the building of the Church, Mt.16:18. The Lord took an impatient man and generated that impatience to be an active, vital cog in what the Lord was doing. In this passage we see the Church continued to flourish and that that Peter was actively used in performing miracles to authenticate the Gospel and that many were saved.
