Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, October 19, 2014












The early church did not have promotion or propaganda. They did not have slogans and banners. They did not have multi-million dollar budgets and WebPages. But one thing they did have, power…(http://consumingfire.com/quotes.html).”



 I continue to be deeply impressed with first-century followers of Jesus Christ and their ability to revolutionize the world with the Gospel.  They were successful without email, web pages, text messages, Facebook, Twitter, and major printing presses.  They were their own public relations firm.  They heard the messages of Jesus and adhered to His command to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.  They were successful without automobiles, airplanes, trains, and gas-propelled boats.  They walked, used donkeys or camels, and used boats for travel.

 They possessed a sincere desire to be good followers of Christ, to do what they saw Him doing, and defend the faith when necessary.  They were not cowards or stymied by fear and apprehension.  They moved from Jerusalem, from Galilee and their steps became enflamed with a passionate desire for others to hear the Gospel message.

 What did they have access to that made their work and ministry successful?  How were they able to go into all the world and serve as bright witnesses for Jesus Christ?
