Topic: “Keep Moving Forward”
The lesson aim is to show that there action steps that must be taken by all those involved in the “work of the ministry”. More importantly, there is evidence that the “work” has multiple players that are expected to work together to move people forward.. No matter what stage you’re on in your walk, you still have a role in the building of God’s kingdom.
Over the past several weeks we have unpacked the truth about the intensity of church growth. Today, we will see that each phase of church growth points to the hand of God rests on and over all those willing to work on the team. The team is made up of several groups, new converts and seasoned believers.
The work that is set before the apostles is driven by their god-given purpose. The purpose in which they are walking was assigned to them by the Lord Jesus himself. Subsequently, their focused is on HIM and “all that Jesus began both to do and teach”. The forward movement of any person is determined by the desires of their heart.
