Following in the Footsteps of Paul
Who was Paul?
Paul was a strong, driven person, even before he became a Christian. When God chose him to preach the Gospel throughout the world, Paul knew he could not rely on his own power to face angry mobs, the miles of travel, and many other hardships. He prayed for strength and courage and that people would hear the good news of Jesus and believe. Paul asked others to join in the struggle by praying for him. He was grateful for their love and support (Acts 9:15, 2 Corinthians 12:9, Ephesians 6:20, Philippians 1:19).
What are the lessons that we can take from Paul?
1. He believed that we are to be a witness to the Good News of Jesus. We should share with everyone the message that Jesus loves us.
2. He believed that we need to study the word of God.
3. He believed that we need to take time to be alone with God in prayer.
4. He believed in the community of believers coming together to share the good news of Jesus and God’s love for us – within our church and outside our church.
Worship for June, July and August will focus on five of Paul’s letters as part of this journey.
