Committed to God’s Kingdom and Glory (Acts 14:21-28)

Acts Sermon Series at Elmira Christian Center

Many Christians today equate making disciples with “making converts.” We think the Great Commission is only about evangelism and reaching the lost. But true, Christian discipleship results from not just “going” but “staying” long enough to rejoice in the gospel and share life together. This is why Paul and Barnabas went back to visit the very cities where they had previously experienced violent opposition and persecution. Compelled by the love of Christ, they cared more about the growth of the new disciples than their own safety and comfort. In this sermon, Joel Traylor shows that we become mature Christlike disciples both by God’s commitment to his sanctifying work in us and also by our commitment to his kingdom and glory.
