The book of Acts is the report of early Christians who had faith to do these greater things that Jesus promised. Consequently these historical information recorded in the book makes it a good source to learn about Christian ministry. In today’s sermon I am going to present to you four principles that makes Christian ministry effective as seen in Acts 16:16-34.

The key word of this paragraph is found in the twelfth verse. It says, ‘people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted’
Illustration: It’s common practice to use Paracetamol in case of a headache because it brings instant comfort. How cum these tiny pills are capable of bringing comfort to such a complicated unit like the human body? What you see is only a tiny single pill. Yet each pill is the combination of three powerful ingredients capable of relieving pain, put together using a scientific formula.

Namely God’s word, fellowship with the church family and God’s presence. Let’s take a detailed look. Click here to read the rest of, Sermon: God’s spiritual formula for comfort Acts 20:7-12
Christian life is not a cakewalk. Definitely not when you are in charge of something. Spiritual, emotional and even physical storms and shipwrecks are inevitable in Christian leadership. Consider the life, ministry and death of the great leader Paul. He was sought after to kill, shipwrecked and finally got executed! In today’s sermon I am going to share some of the leadership qualities that Paul expressed when he got shipwrecked. So as leaders we shall know how to handle our own storms and shipwrecks in ministry.

Grace is the central theme of this parable. In it we meet a group of laborers whose master wasn’t very happy (in Matthew 20:13 “friend” is used ironically) because they failed to identify the grace he expressed unto them.

In this parable I recognized three reasons as to why we fail to walk in God’s grace and how to overcome them.
