Three Proofs of Growth


From: £1.50


Matthew 10:1–10; Acts 4:32–37

One of the most remarkable eras in the history of the church occurred during the first century. Shortly after Christ had left the earth, His disciples (who became apostles) led congregations into new and exciting vistas of faith. Though young and relatively inexperienced, the believers who comprised the first-century church showed evident marks of maturity . . . the children were now growing into adolescence! As we shall see from this particular account, they were willing to take Jesus’ teaching seriously and model those truths in the local church. We hope to glean from these verses three of the more pronounced characteristics of a body of Christians who refused to remain childish in their walk of faith. Ultimately, our goal is to emulate the first-century example in our congregations today.
