The Christian Lifestyle - Episode 3

Spiritual growth in the Lord doesn’t happen in a day, but it happens daily. Advancing in sanctification, or Christian growth, happens by continual exposure to the things that God has given to us. As we conclude our study on the outcome on the actions from Acts 2:42, Pastor Jeff reminds us of the 4 by- products that we need to emulate in order to actually experience that growth like we see in the book of Acts. We invite you to join us for our time in Acts 2 as we conclude the message titled, “The Christian Lifestyle” in our study of Sound Doctrine.

 How often is necessary for a Christian to be experiencing fellowship, God’s Word, and prayer? For some the answer seems obvious. For other believers, it’s based on a sense of perception, or self-evaluation. However, Pastor Jeff shows us from today’s portion in the Scriptures the frequency of being in the Word, Fellowship, and prayer that made a difference among those who came to the Lord. With personal anecdotes of his experience and Biblical references, let’s join Pastor Jeff in Acts 2 for our message titled, “The Christian Lifestyle” for this Friday edition of Sound Doctrine.

What does a changed lifestyle look like? For the person whose life has been transformed by Jesus Christ, who is following Acts 2:42, what should they expect God to do in them and around them? We need to look no further than our portion of Scripture before us today. Pastor Jeff helps us to see how the community in Jerusalem was impacted by the sudden and powerful testimony of the brand new church who continually met in the midst. As we allow our lifestyle to be changed to reflect the same spiritual pursuits, we too can expect God to do a work among our families, our community, and more. We invite you to the message titled, “The Christian Lifestyle” in Acts 2 for our time in Sound Doctrine with Pastor Jeff.

With so much focus on work-life balance, the implication is that our existence mostly consists of those two categories. However the Bible declares that if we have a spiritual balance of 4 spiritual fundamentals then, work...life...and all other areas will find their rightful order, because we have a proper spiritual-life balance with the Lord first. For this reason Pastor Jeff has taken the time to slow down and examine the need for these 4 key areas. As we finish with a look at prayer, we see that the early believers’ dependence on prayer is often absent with today’s church. Pastor Jeff helps us to see how we can regain that personally. With our study in Acts 2, - titled, “Being an Acts 2:42 Christian” join us for today’s encouragement in Sound Doctrine.
