Summary: A sermon based on Acts 2:42 starting with the breakdown of the Apostles’ teaching and how they committed themselves to it.
Back to the Basics- Apostles’ teaching
How many of you have been through basic training?
Christian’s have a basic training too!
Devote- to addict, reflexive pronoun, to devote oneself to, wholly
They were devoted to Christ and following Him
Military- you have to be devoted
Christian- you have to be devoted
Devoted to what?
People who teach have a huge responsibility
Public school teachers
You can reach the kids and other teachers for Christ
Especially when it comes to the Word of God
Some people think my job is easy!
Why did they have to devote themselves to this?
People didn’t know much about Jesus yet!
They didn’t have churches
They met in homes and in the Synagogues
This helped with the spread of Christianity
They didn’t have Bibles
There was no NT
All they had was what the Apostles said
The Bible IS the Apostles doctrine!
My College professors
Some didn’t have books, but I could learn from the knowledge
Why? Because they have studied
Do you have someone you can ask questions?
As a farmer you don’t ask me for help! I’m not a farmer!
This boils down to the principle of priorities
How do your priorities measure up?
What are your priorities?
Family, job, spouse, children, money, house, car???
Are you living your life according to the Word of God?
My guess is some of you have never made that decision
You’re riding the line
