" A Careful Ministry "

Ephesians 6:21-22

June 23, 2019

Pastor Bob Bjerkaas

 

  •  Confidence in the Word of God

 

    1. How ancient messages were certified
    2. Acts 15
    3. Tychicus:
      1. He is known in Ephesus Acts 20:4
      2. He is trusted by Paul Col. 4:7-9; 2 Tim. 4:12; Titus 3:12

 

 

  • Comfort in Paul’s Welfare

 

    1. Paul and the Ephesian Congregation 3:13
    2. Paul gives a direct, personal report – “You also”  note Colossians 4:7-9
    3. A complete and unedited report.

 

 

  • How Can We Apply This?

 

    1. Trust the Word of God!
    2. Genuinely ask and answer the question: “How are you doing.”  Especially cultivate a concern for those who minister to you.

Application

  • Are there areas or topics of God’s word that you have difficulty accepting?
  • Are you forthright in sharing with others how and what you are doing?  Are you asking others about themselves?
  • Do you let those you minister to know how you are doing?
