Passing the Baton Not the Buck

Charlie Alcock – October 17, 2021

Acts 22:15 – You will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard

1 Kings 18:9-15 – 9 “What have I done wrong,” asked Obadiah, “that you are handing your servant over to Ahab to be put to death? 10 As surely as the Lord your God lives, there is not a nation or kingdom where my master has not sent someone to look for you. And whenever a nation or kingdom claimed you were not there, he made them swear they could not find you. 11 But now you tell me to go to my master and say, ‘Elijah is here.’ 12 I don’t know where the Spirit of the Lord may carry you when I leave you. If I go and tell Ahab and he doesn’t find you, he will kill me. Yet I your servant have worshiped the Lord since my youth. 13 Haven’t you heard, my lord, what I did while Jezebel was killing the prophets of the Lord? I hid a hundred of the Lord’s prophets in two caves, fifty in each, and supplied them with food and water. 14 And now you tell me to go to my master and say, ‘Elijah is here.’ He will kill me!”

Nothing is sadder than a church that thinks nothing about itself. What do we, the church, have to offer people?

You either care for people or you use them.

Just stay awake and God will give you a dream.

There is a huge deference between aspiration and action.

Desperation can be used by God.
