Preacher: Alan Cameron
Verses: Acts 16:11-34
How does God guide his church to the right place and time for mission? The passage before us provides important principles for our consideration. There will be sanctified common sense and planning (Acts 15:36). There will be “closed” as well as “open doors” (Acts 16:7,8). There will be guidance by way of circumstances, sometimes extraordinary (Acts 16:9,10), given to individuals as well as the whole team. Discernment and receptivity are the keys. Specific guidance comes to these already on the road as it were, living out the Great Command and Great Commission. Being able to say God sent us with the wind of the Spirit at our backs and his indwelling presence empowering us is a great incentive to mission.
