Discipleship is nothing new.  The Jewish culture had an intense discipleship process.  In this message Pastor Terry will share with us the Jewish method of discipleship and how Jesus has chosen us to be His disciples.  Like the Jewish student followed in the dust of his Rabbi's steps, we too, are called to follow in the dust of Jesus' steps.  Discipleship takes work and Christians have far too long let discipleship go by the wayside, when we are to be living "the Way".

We learn a great deal from Paul in how to handle ourselves when being accused of wrong doing when we have done nothing wrong.  He has kept a clear conscience that allows him to fight the battle easier.  Paul also teaches us that we need to know the law of the land so we are able to defend ourselves better if we have to be in court.  He shows us that even a Christian that has lived righteously can still have evil things spoken of them and must endure for the sake of Christ.  Paul also shows us that we must make the most of every occassion to witness for Christ.

In this message we will see how the pattern is set for prophecy in the Old Testament and re-iterated in the New Testament.  The prophecy of the Great Tribulation and the Great Judgment Day are prophecies that should motivate us in reaching others for Christ.   We are reminded that we need to aide others by introducing them to the "Great Escape" from God's Wrath and Judgment by Faith in Christ.

The Apostle John writes a short letter that describes three different types of people in the house church he is writting to.  He has praises for some and condemnation for others.  It is a reminder to us that there will be those in our churches that are not honoring God with their actions.

Paul is brought before the Sanhedrin. He is able to say to them that he has a clear conscience.  He uses a clever tactic of dividing the Sanhedrin to help conquer the situation and move him on to the next level.  During this time of trial Christ brings him some great encouragement.

Just as we hear about a cold front moving in or see the signs and we prepare to keep warm, we need to be aware of when a cold front is moving in to our hearts.  Agape love can and does grow cold.  Not because God isn't doing his part, but because we let the fire of love die down to embers and eventually blow out on our part.  We are called to love, as He loved us.  To love one another is a command for which every believer will be judged.  We are also told to show our love for God is to be obedient to His Word.

In this part of Acts 22 Paul is told by Ananias that he would be a witness of Jesus to all he would meet.  Every Christian has a purpose in the Lord.  Paul learns that in obedience he needs to be baptized.  We discuss in this study the fact that Baptism does not save.  We are saved by calling on the name of Jesus.
