II. WE SHOULD BE TOTALLY DEVOTED TO THE FAITH
Truth: You cannot be devoted to a faith that you cannot define.
Jude 3: “Very eager to write to you about our common salvation…”
Two Things the Faith Does for Us
1. It Ignites Us
Acts 28:30-31: “He lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, 31 proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.”
2. It Unites Us
Ephesians 4:11-13: “And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints, for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith.”
Acts 2:42-44: “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common.”
“Becoming a safe place for people to let go of their secrets.
Providing a safe process for people to grow in emotional and spiritual maturity in Christ.
Developing disciples in the truth of God’s word.
Loving one another as a witness to the world.”
“We are all about the help, hope, and healing of Jesus.”
