A Missional Model for the Church

Here is a simple outline as we get ready for Sunday  morning @ FBC


Acts 13:4-12

v. 4 – God has sent us

v. 5 – As we go we preach the Gospel (the Word of God)

v. 6 – Our mission field is where we are

v. 7. – God is always working…even when we do not see it

v. 8 – There will always be opposition

v. 9 – The key to being ready is to be growing

v. 10 – The battle is against God

v. 11 – The Lord will do His bidding

v. 12 – Some will believe and some will not

  Acts 13:4-12 ESV

[4] So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus. [5] When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. And they had John to assist them. [6] When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they came upon a certain magician, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus. [7] He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence, who summoned Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. [8] But Elymas the magician (for that is the meaning of his name) opposed them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. [9] But Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him [10] and said, “You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord? [11] And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and unable to see the sun for a time.” Immediately mist and darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking people to lead him by the hand. [12] Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had occurred, for he was astonished at the teaching of the Lord.
