The Cycle of a Disciple

Sermon Series:Acts

This week we take a look back at the first four chapters of Acts. We see a pattern that emerges in the life of the early church. Adversity, Encounter, Expression, and Digestion. We will see how this pattern helped establish the church, but also carries through most of the bible. I believe as we see this pattern as normative it will deepen our relationship with God and transform the circumstances of our lives. Adversity leads to encountering God. Encounters need to be Expressed through obedience, proclamation and demonstration. What we Express needs to be Digested and become a part of who we are.
