The Christ-Empowered Life

On Sunday, my mentor preached on Acts 9:32-43, about Peter who lived the Christ-empowered life. Professor Brown shared that there is only one level of Christian living. The following is his sermon outline:
  1. The Person
    Peter was an uneducated tradesman, and quite unreliable.
    He was now empowered by Christ . People noticed he had been with Jesus. God worked through him.
  2. The Out-working
    How and when did Jesus work through him? Peter was now engaged in his own work. Notice how God’s call came to him through the needs at Joppa to which Peter responded.
  3. The Consequences
    Marvellous things happen when Jesus is at work; even miracles!
    Notice the greatest miracle was that people saw what happened, listened and responded to the gospel.

Hi Kitty ... Thanks for your comment on "Pilgrim's Progress" blog. It's nice to meet others who have a heart for mission, but also a desire to be creative.

Blessings

I like that thought, "only one level of Chrsitian living". We're either following or we're not.

Hi Richard, yes I think mission and creativity are interconnected. After all, our God is a missionary and creative God :)
