ACT 20:1-17 CAUSE OR SOLVE PROBLEMS
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Thursday, 29 September 2016

The Church is not out to cause problems, but to solve problems and Paul was very sensitive to what was going on and able to escape any punishment from mans displeasure of the truth.

Acts 20:1-38 (NKJV)
1  After the uproar had ceased, Paul called the disciples to himself, embraced them, and departed to go to Macedonia.
Paul spent a great deal of time here at Ephesus and because of not wanting to be a part of any uprising or opposition. So we see him moving on to the Church he began and goes to Macedonia. He loved the Church of Ephesus, but left with a love for the people. Paul is a person that wanted to go where the Lord called him. Thank the Lord when God calls He leads us into areas of unrest many times, for that is where the Gospel is needed.

 It is always good to see other minister involved in your ministry, for it brings assurance you’re not the only one proclaiming the good news, Jesus saves. 2  Now when he had gone over that region and encouraged them with many words, he came to Greece
3  and stayed three months. And when the Jews plotted against him as he was about to sail to Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia.
We are seeing the Church in many areas not seeing the hand of the Lord working signs and wonders of people getting saved and healed of diseases and they need to be encouraged, as there are many who are being saved and healed in spite of what we do or say.

Here he was in the area three months and again seeing people unhappy with what he was doing and begin to plot against him, so he moves on. Lord may we know when it is time to move on, so we do not get hurt by not paying attention to the voice of the Lord.
4  And Sopater of Berea accompanied him to Asia--also Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy, and Tychicus and Trophimus of Asia.
What a group of men Paul entrusted to help him out in ministry, for he needed help in making sure people that needed help where given that help. I remember many Evangelist, had to have helpers to bring people up front to have prayer and to help in pushing people that where in wheel chairs and taking the wheel chairs and crutches and putting them away in trailers. They need someone to control the crowds. Since Paul had the gift of healing and miracles, he certainly needed people assisting him even in going about themselves ministering in the area inviting people to his services. What a great picture of what is needed in the Church to day. Workers are needed to minister to people.

Dr David Jeremiah says the apostle Paul was a great leader and we see it by the snap shot we see in this chapter. Paul had a heart for ministry verse 1-2; a Spirit of tenacity verse 3-6; Lived a life of integrity verse 7-13; is marked by humility verse 18-20; Speaks honestly verse 26-31; A man under authority verse 31-32; Given to generosity verse 33-35 and followers of the Lord Verse 36-38. Lord help us who are involved in any type of minister to do all we can to honor the Lords will for our lives.
5  These men, going ahead, waited for us at Troas.
What a picture of working together for the Kingdom of God, seeing people going on ahead to let people know what they were in store for as a Church. The Church was just beginning and people were excited for what was going to happen next. I remember Jack Hayford from the Church on the way in Van Nuys CA saying, he never went anywhere over night without his wife, or someone that could hold him responsible for what could happen. Lord may we have people around us to hold us accountable for what we believe.
6  But we sailed away from Philippi after the Days of Unleavened Bread, and in five days joined them at Troas, where we stayed seven days.
Paul knew the importance of the festivals and made sure he honored the reason for such celebrations. 1 Corinthians 5: 7-8 Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore lest us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Lord may we see the importance of the reason we do what we do, so we can be assured we are obeying your word and not doing whatever we think is OK.
7  Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight. Thank the Lord for the one day the Lord has given to us to worship Him and adore Him, so we can be better prepared to minister to people during the week. This is the day the Lord has made, so we can rest in body, soul and spirit as we give of our time for the Lord to examine our hearts, to see if we are walking in the way, or we on the way. Today we are seeing a lot of people that are in the way, preventing others from going to church, as we are all suffering from over load of entertainment, sports, fishing for trouble, or getting high on alcohol, or drugs on the Lords day that is Gods court home showing who we are serving God or Satan.

!2 steps to "LADDER OF SUCCESS"
Contributed by Jerral Campfield

Twelve Step Ladder of Success.
 
1. We admit we are powerless over our dependencies and that our lives have become unmanageable.
Romans 7:17 "I know nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good but I cannot carry it out."
Powerless over our separation from God, we use dependencies to fill the void caused by that separation.
 
Unhealthy Dependencies
 
Alcohol or Drugs
Work or Achievement
Exercise
Overspending
Sexual Addiction
Approval    People, Places, Things
Food
Tobacco
Control Addictions
Power
Religiosity
Shopping
 
We use dependencies to avoid our pain.
We live in a fantasy world.
We cannot cope with life.
Our denial kept us from seeing how powerless and unmanageable our lives had become.
Surrender is the answer
We had to stop fighting God, others and ourselves.
The solution:
Honesty
Open-mindedness
Willingness
 
 
2. We came to believe that God could restore us to sanity.
The insanity is that we continue the same behavior and expect different
results.
2 Peter 2: 22 Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and a sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.
Proverbs ??:??
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

Fear of the Unknown

Fear of Economic Insecurity
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God. Jesus said in John 14:6 "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man gets to the father except through me."
When we rely on God we begin to trust others and ourselves.
We give him our past, our future, our will, our body, soul & spirit.
With God all things are possible.
I can't
God can
I'll let Him
Proverbs 3:5&6
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own
understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths."
We Turn over Good and Bad
 
Worries
Faults
Habits

Talents
Strengths
Visions
Goals
Will
Possessions
 
2 Timothy 1:7
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind."
 
 
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Matthew 7:3-5 Jesus said,"Why worry about a speck in the eye of a brother when you have a board in your own? First get rid of the board then you can see clearly enough to help your brother."
We write our own life story- honesty is the key that breaks denial
John 8:32
"And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free."

5. We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
 
 
James 5:16a
"Therefore confess your sins one to another and pray for each other that you may be healed."
Adam and Eve tried to hide from God in the Garden. We need to run to God not away from him.
Confession Promotes Healing: We are as sick as our Secrets
SECRETS CAUSE    
Shame
Guilt
Fear
Isolation
Alienation
Dishonesty
Denial
Low Self Worth
Inadequacy
Depression
Anger
Defensiveness
Self Hatred      
HONESTY PROMOTES
Trust
Confidence
Purity

Acceptance of Others
Patience
Tolerance
Gratitude
Serenity
Peace
Openness
Self Acceptance
Forgiveness
 
Jesus died for our sins.
Romans 8:1
"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus."
Courage is not the absence of fear but the ability to overcome it.
 
 
6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Romans 12:1
"I plead with you dear brothers to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living sacrifice, Holy - The kind He can accept."
This is a lifelong process. It is progress not perfection.
We discovered our defects in Step 4
 
Dishonesty
Pride
Control/Power
Lust
Greed
Envy
Jealousy   
Gluttony
Unhealthy Fears
Unresolved Hurts
Rage
Laziness
Irresponsibility
Other Sins
 
 
Destructive Coping Skills
 
Alcohol
Drugs
Food
Sex
Gambling
Tobacco
Shopping   
Suicide
Violence
Excessive Exercise
Work
Over Achievement
Religiosity
 
A Transformation is accruing.
Romans 12:2
"Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind."
 
7. Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
1 John 1:9
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins, and purify us from all unrighteousness."
Pain has been our teacher, which is the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
God uses pain to change us, NOT to punish us.
Matthew 23:12
"For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
Paradoxes of Prayer
I asked God for strength, that I might achieve
I was made weak, that I might learn to humbly obey
I asked for health, that I might do greater things
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things
I asked for riches, that I might be happy
I was given poverty, that I might be wise
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things
I got nothing that I asked for
But everything I had hoped for almost despite myself,
My unspoken prayers were answered
I am, among all, most richly blessed!
 
Now the truth sets us free.
 
8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
Luke 6:31
"And as you would like and desire that others would do to you, do so to
them."
Working Steps 8 & 9 will begin to relieve our isolation, fear, guilt, shame, and loneliness. We learn to stop blaming others and learn to focus on taking responsibility for ourselves. We have blamed our parents, our relatives, our friends, out teachers, and even God. We put ourselves first on the list to make amends to. We forgive ourselves for out wrongs. We stop punishing ourselves.
 
We list all the people we discovered in our 4th step inventory.
 
Our willingness is the importance of this step. We are willing to face the damage we caused others and ourselves.
 
We look at whom we may have lied to, cheated, stole from, were envious or jealous of, and had inappropriate sexual relations with and any other hurt we caused.
Healing damaged relationships has begun.
Forgiveness helps us to let go of hurtful events of the past.
What we don't forgive we Re-Live.
The Lord's Prayer says: Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
One day at a time.
 
 
 
9.  Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Matthew 5:23-24
"If you are offering your gift at the altar and suddenly remember a friend has something against you, go and be reconciled to that person."
We have come too far to turn back now.
We pray about whom we can make direct amends to, we ask God to direct us.
We have to make amends face to face where possible.
Sometimes it may hurt another person to make a direct amend, therefore; we may write a letter to God asking for forgiveness and healing of the other persons. (An example might be infidelity). This would be injurious of those involved. We become reconciled to ourselves, others and God. We are feeling a purity in ourselves.
Isaiah 1:18
"Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow."
Psalm 103:12
God will remove our sins as far as the east is from the west.
We begin to feel self worth, self-respect, dignity, honor, and love for self and others.
We are no longer controlled by our secrets. We moved from the darkness into the light.
We have to courage to face Life.
 
 
 
 
10.  We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
1 Corinthians 10:12 I
"If you think you are standing firm, be careful you don't fall."
We continue to take inventory of ourselves to assure we keep a clear
conscience.
We ask the Holy Spirit to search us daily and when we are wrong we promptly admit it.
Our faith has given us healthier thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
We have replaced fear, guilt, shame, isolation, loneliness, anger and other destructive behaviors with:
Replacements for Fear
 
Gratitude
Acceptance
Humility
Forgiveness
Generosity
Caring
Truth
Patience
Respect
Humor
 
We make a gratitude list and add to it daily.
We learn about H.A.L.T. We don't become too:
Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired.
We seek Godly counsel when needed. We have learned to associate with healthy people.
Proverbs 27:17
"Just as iron sharpens iron, people sharpen people."
We learn to guard, protect, and polish our Temple, as it is the dwelling
place for the Holy Spirit.
 
 
 
11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as revealed through the person of Jesus Christ, praying only for the knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
The Bible is the greatest source for discovering
God's will and purpose for our lives.

Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you ", Declares the Lord, " plans to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Matthew 7:7
"Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you."
Revelation 3:8
"I will open doors no man can close and close doors no man can open."
Prayer is talking to God.
Meditation is listening to God.
 
 
12. Having had a Spiritual Awakening as a result of these steps, which is the revelation of Jesus Christ, we try to carry this message to others and to practice these Biblical principles in all our affairs.
Galatians 6:1
"Brothers, if someone is overtaken by sin, you who are spiritual should restore him. But be careful, or you also may be tempted."
Luke 15:20
"And he arose, and came to his Father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him."
Just as the prodigal son was restored to his rightful place, God is
Restoring, us to our rightful place.
We are amazed at how far we've come.
More will be revealed as we continue walking these steps.
Step 12 allows us to carry the message of healing to a hurting world.
We practice the principles of the steps in every area of our lives. We help others on their exodus from bondage.
It is in dying to self that we are born anew.
