Replicating Yourself

John Stagne

Acts 15:36-41

I. Who are you taking with you? (v. 36-38)

Acts 4:36-37 – 36 Thus Joseph, who was also called by the apostles Barnabas (which means son of encouragement), a Levite, a native of Cyprus, 37 sold a field that belonged to him and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

II. Be intentional about who you invest your life in (v. 39-40)

III. Be the kind of Christian who pours strength into others (v. 41)

a. Life: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10:10)
b. Thinking: 22 to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, 23 and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self,created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. (Eph. 4:22-24)
c. Future: In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
(John 14:2-3)
