This week we are going to take a look at one of the stops that Dr. Luke, Titus, Timothy and Paul made in Troas. Luke describes for us in Acts 20: 6-12 some of the “where” that the local church was operating, and we see that these were also pathways for us to follow, even today. I Corinthians 16 Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of…

Acts 1 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” The last one that we will look at this week is also from Luke in the manuscript of…

John 20 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.” John highlights a different aspect of Jesus’ command to…

Mark 16 15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned The emphasis that we see above from Mark is on the totality of our evangelistic task. Jesus leaves no corner of the world untouched when He tells us to go to “ALL the world”,…

This week, let’s look at what some of the main dudes said about Jesus wanting us to tell ALL. Let’s start with Matthew. Matthew 28 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20…

2 Timothy 2:22 Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. John 8:32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” Most people believe that more money, success, or pleasure will bring them happiness and satisfaction.

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Galatians 5:1 It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Just like our salvation, the process of becoming more Christlike is a work of the Holy Spirit. We participate by submitting to His…

2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Not only are we set free from the power of sin, but we can also be released from the guilt…

Romans 7:19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. Luke 4:17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is…

Galatians 5:13- You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. Just to reiterate what we discussed by way of Acts 15, the Freedom we have in Christ is not for the purpose of indulging the sinful nature, but to lovingly serve and enjoy one another and Jesus. Indulging the sinful nature…

And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.   (Luke 11:2) God knows what He wants us to do on this earth, and He leads those who are surrendered to Him.  But many times we don’t do what God wants us to do.  Why?  Perhaps we don’t know God’s will.  Maybe we…
