Passage: Acts 16:6-40
Duration: 45 mins 39 secs
Let's Know the Bible Conference speaker, Dr. Cythia Westfall, talks about Paul's surprising encounters with Lydia on his second missionary journey. The Spirit of God sends the famed apostle on a 950 mile journey to Macedonia, and his first conversion happens at a riverside with the God-fearing, immigrant, self-employed Lydia. This message notes ten observations about Lydia that are surprising. Most importantly, we tend to overlook people who live on the margins of society. Both are Bible reading and Christian living will benefit when we begin to notice the unseen people God puts in our lives.

God has a mission. He intends his people to join Him, both as "sent out" missionaries and "sending" churches. All His people are called to live on mission. This sermon explains God's mission and how we have joined Him. It also reflects on Psalm 67 as a beautiful reflection of God's heart for all peoples to know Him.

Followers of Jesus have been entrusted with a life changing message. The Gospel, the Good news, tells a public truth about the world. That is, Jesus, is the king who has defeated sin and death and brought, fulfilling God's promises by bringing salvation to all people. Paul expected Timothy to share this good news. Jesus expects us to, as well. Sharing the Good News does not require eloquence, but it does demand urgency.

We live in a self-centered world. It is a sure sign of our age. The apostle Paul warned Timothy a day would come (and was near) when the misbehavior in Ephesus would be widespread. Welcome to our world. Sadly, false teachers and egomaniacs exploit others with their antics. Paul offers another way, a way of faithfulness in life, love, and suffering. He knows Timothy's faith has followed a common growth path. He encourages him, and us, to continue the path of learning faithfulness. And when we learn it, we live IT.

This sermon addresses the need for hope when you've lost your "bounce" in life. Sometimes it feels like you're jumping on a concrete trampoline. Suffering is real. Pain often lingers. Fortunately, the presence and power of God is real. He is trustworthy. In the midst of our hardships we can look to him.

The proof of genuine Christian faith is the life-long pursuit of Jesus. This pursuit comprises character transformation and spiritual community. And it recognizes the trap of divorcing faith from practice. Bible trivia and fighting for fundamentalism does not prove anything. The quiet, steady, gentle, loving, truth-seeking pursuit of Jesus speaks volumes.

We do not stand alone. As followers of Jesus, we band together, suffer together, and grow together. There is no other way. Jesus shapes us through godly mentors, faithful leaders, and loving believers. Timothy experienced this with Paul, who tasked his "beloved son" with raising up the next generation of leaders in the church. This investment in the lives of others is the greatest impact we can have.

God had a wonderful, vulnerable plan for keeping his kingdom plan marching forward: he tasked men and women to live it and pass it along to the next generation. Like the game of tag, there are not "take backs." The newly appointed IT person has to find someone else to pass it along. Paul tagged Timothy. Timothy would tag others. And on and on. Fortunately, succession plans are not purely up to us. God provides an IT factor to empower us.

From a young age many of us learn to pray simply as a means of getting things from God or returning thanks to Him. This treats God like a genie in a lamp. What happens when God does not grant our wishes? What happens when we say know? Well, it turns us toward the true purpose of prayer: relationship. This sermon helps us remember the real reason for prayer is connecting to God, even amid our hardest moments.

Hell sounds scary. Darkness. Isolation. Fire that never stops burning. These are the images Jesus used to describe everlasting life apart from God. Fortunately, there is a better option: everlasting life in Heaven. We have a choice. A memorable scene with Jesus and disciples captures this decision and its eternal consequences. Who do you say Jesus is?
