Read Acts 5:17-29
We need some sluggers not more sluggards. Not the slothful, but the servant. Not the loser, but the winner. We covered the need of a, PREACHER, PURPOSE, PLAN, PERSPERATION and now:
V. THE PREACHING.
Must be pointed, prepared, prayed over. It must be Biblical and without compromise. It must be Holy Spirit filled and led.
VI. THERE MUST BE PRAISE.
Share defeats and victories with one another. Give God all the glory and never rob Him of it.
VII. THERE MUST BE POWER.
A preacher and church without the power of God is like a singer without a voice, an actor without a script, a carpenter without hammer, a policeman without a gun, clouds without rain, etc.
It is God’s power that makes a church go, and brings new people into the church. Man’s power will come to naught, but God’s power brings victory.
VIII.. THERE MUST BE LOTS OF PRAYER.
Much prayer much power, little prayer little power, no prayer no power.
IX. WE NEED QUITE A BIT OF PATIENCE.
Keep on propagating the Gospel and soul-winning. Don’t worry about the critics.
X. PERSEVERENCE (verses 39, 4:13-22).
These are some of the things necessary to MAKE THE CHURCH GO FOR JESUS IN OUR CHURCHES, AND REACH PEOPLE FOR CHRIST.
