Great Commission Christians

Acts 1:12-26

To help the church realize the mission of the church

 

Prayer and waiting

Waiting must have been hard

Today it would be seen as a wasting time

Just when it seems that we need to get busy the best thing is to wait

Prayer and revival

          Persistent prayer

         

          Revival

                   A love for God’s word

                   A Focus on Evangelism

                   A Unified Focus

                             Group life

 

Finding leaders

          Having the proper and trained leaders

          Make sure the qualifications are scriptural and not soley based on tradition or  socially based

The second great Awakening of 1858 began in New York City with a lay preacher named Jeremiah Lamphier.  He organized a noon-day prayer meeting that eventually exploded into one of the greatest outpourings of blessing that our country has ever seen. 

From October of 1858 through September of 1859, nearly 1,000,000 people (one tenth of America’s population) openly professed Christ, and joined a local church!
