Reference: Acts 19:1-7
Topic: “How Long Should It Take?”
The lesson aim is to shed light on the myth that all saints are growing in the knowledge of the Lord. More importantly, there is always room for growth. We have to seek the knowledge of God. (Reference: Matthew 6:33; Philippians 3:14; Hebrews 11:6)
We should never assume that everybody in the “church” is a believer. Nor should we neglect to teach the word of God because the number of folks present is not great.
When traveling long distances, there is a common question asked by children and even adult passengers, “are we there yet?” This is the same question being posed to the saints at
by the Apostle Paul. There is a
perceived progress that should take place which denotes any growth that has
been made while on this journey. But if
individuals have not made any progress in there study of God’s word, they may
be lacking in their knowledge of who Jesus is.
At that point, another question remains unanswered. Can a person be in
the church and not know Jesus? (Read verse 3)
What are the differences in evangelism and/or kingdom building between now and then?
In today’s time, who has the role of Paul, Silas and Apollos?
Do you feel you have reached your goal in your journey with the Lord?
