The church on another stage - Pastor Tshalo
 
Acts 8 vs 4-8; 1 Corinthians 1 vs 2-3
  • The purpose of the church is to affect the city in a great way
  • The city should not be in the church, but the church should be in the city. E.g. philosophy & theology of life based on God and not on the world
  • When crisis happens, why does God allow it?
  • Every time God sees a global crisis, He moves man onto another level
  • Every time you see greatness in the bible, it's in response to a global crisis
  • To sustain what you have become is determined by who sustains you - God sustains me!
  • The city church is the solution to the global crisis:
    • To bring lasting solutions to humans problems
    • For kingdom expansion
  • The biggest renewal of mind should be when you able to say: "What about the kingdom"
    • Your approach to seeing God becomes different
  • God allows crisis to usher something greater into someone's life

Acts 8 vs 4 mentions the scattered community
  • They were scattered because they were persecuted
  • They went into cities as actors/life changers and not as spectators
  • Whatever place you enter, you become a seed that has been scattered
  • Figure out what your mission in the place you are at

4 elements to be filled with in order to function on another level and another stage:

1. To be filled with the word of God
  • Whatever fills you comes out of you
  • Jeremiah 20 vs 7-9, Luke 6 vs 43-45
  • If nothing is going on, nothing is said
2. To be filled with the faith of God
  • Matthew 17 vs 18-20, 2 Corinthians 4 vs 13-18
  • "I believe therefore I have spoken"
  • You establish things by what you say
3. To be filled with the spirit of God
  • If there is nothing in you that burns then you will not proclaim the word
  • Acts 1 vs 8, 2 Timothy 1 vs 3-8
  • You need to have the spirit of God active inside you
4. To be filled with the love of God
  • John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5 vs14-20
  • You cannot be filled with love without giving
  • Change the way you see people
