Signs of a Healthy Church

Acts 2:42-42
Topic: The Church
The Church is not like any organization you might find in the world. It is a living organism. The church is a living body established in Acts 2.

In 1 and 2 Samuel we find the story of Saul and David. David, anointed the next king of Israel by the prophet Samuel, had been asked by his father to check on his brothers in battle. Arriving there, he quickly surveyed the humiliating situation between the people of God and the Philistines, (and their Goliath). Realizing that there was a great cause (I Samuel 17:29), he fights and defeats the giant. This great feat was done with a slingshot and just one smooth stone.

In the “great commission,” Jesus placed “discipleship” at the top of the church’s “List of Things to Do Today.” However, like many “to do” lists, we have pushed what needs to be done today off until a distant tomorrow that never arrives. The real priority slips further down on the list each day. Thus, the church lacks the desire needed to reach the world. We must focus on our central purpose of making disciples. [ read more... ]
