In Acts chapter 20, the Apostle Paul was departing from the saints in Ephesus whom he loved dearly.

What was their aim?  Stay with us for an extraordinary life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #54) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (20)

In Acts chapter 20, the Apostle Paul is leaving the elders of the Church in Ephesus. And, in his mind, he believed it would be the last time he would ever see these ones with whom he had been so deeply attached in the Lord. His words to them were solemn and at times foreboding. But, embedded in them was a verse of incredible meaning and feeling, a verse in a few words which convey some of the most profound revelation in all of scripture. Today we look at Acts chapter 20 verse 28. Stay with us as we consider this remarkable utterance on today’s life study of the Bible.

In Acts Chapter 20, the Apostle Paul, anticipating his possible martyrdom, declared, “But I consider my life of no account as if precious to myself, in order that I may finish my course and the ministry which I have received from the Lord Jesus to solemnly testify of the gospel of the grace of God… For I did not shrink from declaring to you all the counsel of God.”

This was God’s foremost Apostle, the one in whom God had committed the ministry of the age, and yet he found himself in such extreme persecution that he feared that he would not be spared to continue. What brought about such a dramatic moment in his magnificent ministry? Stay with us as we’ll find out in today’s life study of the Bible.

We’re going to hear reference in the program today to a mixture that was present in the Church in Jerusalem. Even a mixture to some degree in the Word of the Apostle James. We want to be clear we’re not condemning or criticizing the Word of God, but simply looking at how the divine record, the Holy Word, has presented the condition that existed at that time. What is this mixture regarding and what kind of influence did it have on the early Church, particularly in Jerusalem?

This mixture is really a mixture of God’s New Testament economy with the Old Testament dispensation. It’s a mixture of Christ with things that are out of date. Many things in the Old Testament, in fact the entire Old Testament, with all the types, the figures, the shadows, and the prophecies – all pointed us to Christ…

As Christians we admire and appreciate very much those who are gifted and eloquent, and use their gift for the Lord. We love to hear an exciting preacher holding an audience spellbound with a mighty convincing Gospel message. But, do you realize that such a gifted one in the first century Church as seen in Acts lead many people to the Lord Jesus. He was zealous and bold, and used his gifts for the Lord. But, he was the cause of a serious problem, nearly dividing the Body of Christ: all because of his lack of the full revelation of God’s up-to-date move at that time. Are we in God’s up-to-date move today? We all must ask ourselves and the Lord Jesus this vital question.

Acts (Program #49) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (15)

Much of the book of Acts is devoted to the account of Paul the Apostle, as he journeyed to the uttermost parts of the earth, speaking and testifying of the resurrected Christ. This word was a blessing to many, but a dagger in the heart of some. In Paul, we see a man of God in spirit, intent, and resolute in this one thing: to preach among the people the unsearchable riches of Christ. Stay with us today as we once again look at the New Testament example of a New Testament minister of Christ on the life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #48) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (14)

The book of Acts is a unique book in all of scripture. Unveiling, not the Christ of the Gospels in its earthly ministry, but the Christ in resurrection: living, working, and spreading through His members as the Church was established in the remote regions of the inhabited earth in the first century.

The life study of Acts is the basis of our program today. This week, we’ve been seeing the second great missionary journey, as it’s called, of the Apostle Paul. We begin the life study of Acts by seeing that Acts is a book of the propagation of the resurrected and ascended Christ through His disciples…
