Ends of the Earth: Courage to Obey
We often see the same things, process the same information, seeking to be honest in our evaluations, yet come to different conclusions.  How do Christians, when we disagree, find resolution when there is no clear biblical answer or "thus says the Lord"?  What are we to do?

    Ends of the Earth: Four Words
    Hardships and challenges face us all in our pursuit of Christ and obedience to Him.  We need loving instructions and warnings, from those who truly care for our souls, that will aid and protect us.

    Not one of has it all figured out.  Each of us needs loving correction from time to time.   We need to be willing to receive it.  When necessary, we also need to be able to give it.  There is much we can learn from the Evangelist Apollos and his encounter with Aquilla & Priscilla.

    Ends of the Earth: Spiritual Warfare
    There is a battle raging for every human soul and we need to understand who the enemy is and how to do battle against him.  That battle is not always seen or understood because it is a spiritual one.  As a result, we often mistake the identity of our true enemy.  We also tend to overestimate our strength against him apart from a deep and abiding relationship with Jesus Christ and the power of His Holy Spirit.

    Ends of the Earth: In? Yes. Of? No!
    When it comes to sharing your faith, or witnessing to another, the love of God and salvation through Christ, we must find the right starting point.  In order to do that we need to have some understanding of the one(s) we are endeavoring to share the gospel with.  Paul’s engagement with the people of Athens is an excellent example of just how to do that.

    Ends of the Earth: Sober-Minded
    We live in an “information drunk” culture. With so much access to information and news, it can seem overwhelming. How do we sort through all that we see every day? How do we become “sober-minded”?

    Ends of the Earth – Freed to Stay
    The pathway of obedience to Christ is not always easy and open doors may not always mean what we think they mean.   Paul’s incarceration in a Roman jail in Philippi is an example of how God uses the most difficult of circumstances and conditions to the most glorious of ends.

    Ends of the Earth: Doors
    Ministry is not always easy and determining next steps can be a challenge.  How do you know when God closes a door and when He opens one?  There are things we can learn from the Apostle Paul who face the same challenge.

    Ends of the Earth: Divided but Redeemed
    Very few people love conflict.   Not all conflicts can be avoided.   It is most often painful and may lead to new, but divided, directions.  We need to learn how to handle conflict properly and seek to bring God glory through it or as a result of it.

    Ends of the Earth: Accountable
    Everyone needs accountability.  Even the Apostles needed accountability.  Accountability keeps us on mission and protects us from blind spots and giving in to personal agendas.  At the conclusion of the first missionary journey of Paul and Barnabas, they returned to the church that had sent them (Antioch) to give a report.  They were then called to the mother church in Jerusalem to give a full account of what they were preaching and teaching and give clarity to reports they had received from others.
