Paul Addresses the Ephesian Elders Pt. 2 Focus on Jerusalem & Rejection: Acts 20:20-24

December 4, 2022 Speaker: Bob DeWaay Series: Acts of the Apostles

Scripture: Acts 20:20-24

In this class we focus on the important qualities of Christian ministry demonstrated by Paul and taught to the Ephesian elders. Many of these qualities have been replaced in contemporary Christianity with various characteristics which are gleaned from the pagan culture. What is truly profitable for the well-being the church is what has been revealed in Scripture and lived out by the whole church.

Paul mentions repentance and faith. The proclamation of truth is to be made in every possible venue. The need to escape from the wrath of God and turn to Christ must be preached publicly.

Church traditions get buried in official documents over the years and eventually weight too lightly on the hearts and minds of those who are in leadership. Having creeds with truth which mean little or nothing to preachers have the effect of creating a church that looks nothing like what is described here in Acts 20.
