Acts 6:1-7 Spirit Empowered Servants Summary: There are times when we see people in need of some of the things we take for granted, like food, clothing and a home. Something much like this happened in the days of the Apostles. Many widows (women whose husbands had died) were going hungry daily. What did the church do? They choose faithful men to serve and meet this need, much like our own deacons do today. As we care for those in need, we get to show the love of Jesus to people! How can you show love and mercy like Jesus? Let’s think about it: Outline: 1. The struggle: the Body of Christ finds people not receiving care 2. The solution: the Body of Christ chooses servants of mercy 3. The success: The Body of Christ shows God’s mercy to the World Verse: Psalm 146:9 The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. Discussion questions: Consider this description of Jesus: “Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people…” (Luke 24:19). What does this tell us about the fullness of Jesus’ ministry? How should that be reflected in the church’s ministry? Where are you seeking to meet needs and dispense mercy today? Where can you begin this week? Make a plan – perhaps a plan that involves your whole family.
