Family Devotional Guide - 10/13/19
Scripture: Acts 15:36-41
Discussion: In this section of Sunday’s sermon, we found that Paul and Silas were given the “Message of Discipleship.” What is the difference between evangelism and discipleship? What does it tell us about the importance of sharing your faith when you consider the two means God uses to save others (personal witnessing & preaching)?
Song: “Facing a Task Unfinished” by Ed Cash, Fionán De Barra, Frank Houghton, Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty & Samuel Wesley
Scripture: Acts 16:1-10
Discussion: In this section, we find Paul, Silas, Timothy & Luke being given the “Message of Deliverance.” What does this tell us about the power of the gospel? How have you seen spiritual strongholds broken? Spend some time praising the Lord and especially thanking Him who “breaks the power of cancelled sin, He sets the prisoner free.”
Song: “O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing” by Charles Wesley & Carl G. Glaser
Scripture: Romans 1:16-17
Discussion: The gospel is powerful, yet at times we cannot say with Paul, “I am not ashamed of the gospel.” We’re guilty of keeping the message to ourselves! Share a time when you were reluctant to share your faith and passed up the opportunity. Pray and ask the Lord to give you holy boldness to reach others with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Song: “Mighty to Save” by Ben Fielding & Reuben Morgan
