The Pastoral Staff & Support Staff

The Gospel Institute | Survey of the Bible
Monday Evenings, January 25-March 8 | 6-9pm
While comprised of 66 individual books written by many authors, the Bible is one Book written by one Author. Every believer will benefit from studying the big picture of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It is common for believers to read individual parts of the Bible without understanding how those parts fit into the whole. This class is designed to encourage believers who are at all levels of Bible knowledge to know God through His Word.

Come and learn more about the whole message God gave to us through His Book! Cost for resources: $30. Sign up on your mybethany or call the church office.

Sermon Notes

GOD ON THE MOVE: WHO GOD MOVES THROUGH

Stick to the Plan

Acts 1:12-23

What to do while we wait on the Lord?

Action #1:  We long for Jesus to return.

Action #2:  We obey the Lord’s clear commands.

Action #3:  We pray together with others.

Action #4:  We search the scriptures.

Action #5:  We make all necessary preparations.

For reflection:

Why did God ask the disciples to wait in Jerusalem instead of sending the Spirit right away?
What did the disciples do as they waiting on God to send the Spirit?

For discussion:

What times in your life has God asked you to wait on Him?
What scriptures encourage us to wait on the Lord?  What promises does God give to us as we wait on Him?
What would it practically look like for you to long for Jesus to return?
Why is corporate prayer important to God?
What might you do to strengthen corporate prayer in your church?
What hinders you from being excited about corporate prayer?
