God, Help Our Mission Part 2

The Path of Life

Larry Stockstill

April 15, 2018

“You have made known to me the paths of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence” (Acts 2:28 ESV).

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. …And they were selling their possessions and belongings and sharing the proceeds with all, as any had need” (Acts 2:42, 45 ESV).

How the path becomes a process

  • You only change behavior with two things: pain or pleasure. PAIN breaks BAD habits. PLEASURE builds good habits.
    • CUE (trigger)
    • BEHAVIOR (habit)
    • REWARD (pleasure)

BIBLE READING: Read on a PLAN.

  • DIRECTION
  • CONNECTION
  • COMPLETION

FELLOWSHIP: Put it on the CALENDAR.

  • CHURCH services
  • SMALL groups

PRAYER: Pray on a TRACK.

Four parts to prayer

  • Worship
  • Repentance
  • Infilling
  • Petition

SHARING: Plant a SEED daily.

“It is more blessed [joyful] to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35 ESV).
