 Imagine what would happen if a crisis arose somewhere in the world, and the president’s advisors couldn’t find him because he was vacuuming the carpets in the dining room! That wouldn’t happen because the authority to clean carpets has been delegated to someone else. In the church, delegation of authority is important as well. the pastor cannot do everything! Al Pittman's  study is in Acts chapter six.

This book written by Luke tells us about the working of God through the Word of God in the hearts of the people of God. And there were many challenges as the church begins - among them,  some widows being neglected. This resulted in some hurt feelings and the need for the Apostles to deal with the problem in a straight forward manner, while keeping their own priorities in line. Our reference is in chapter six of the book of Acts.

Today we will continue our study through the book of Acts and chapter four . This was a time of great growth in the early Christian church, and two of the leaders of that early church, Peter and John, had been arrested for preaching the Gospel.

In Acts chapter four, we find Peter and John before the religious authorities, accused of saying things that were quite contrary to the accepted teaching of the time. But Peter and John were defiant, they were on fire for the Lord, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit. What a great example for Christians today
