Sermon Notes

At first glance, there may not seem to be much in this short passage for use in our lives today. An ancient group of outcasts welcomes in and joins forces with another ancient messenger and outcast, and all promise to keep some poor people in mind as they proceed in their task. This seems hardly noteworthy. However, in this small passage we find a marvelous pattern for every Christian community. We see the basis for unity, the fellowship of genuine and lasting bonds, and the proper progression of communal Christian growth. A society of Christians in the 21st century may indeed learn much from this seemingly obscure account.
