If you want to have 20 20 vision in ministry you need to practice what Paul outlined in Acts 20:20 (NIV) You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.
In Paul’s day there were times they gathered for public worship and times they gathered in homes for worship. That principle is still valid today as we have a need of public corporate worship (Heb. 10:24-25) and we need to meet in small groups in homes to continue that worship. God never intended us to do life alone. As followers of Christ we must do life together; which makes being an active part of a vibrant small group is essential to your spiritual well-being!
Now for a little humor. Evidently Paul was also a little long-winded at times. Check this out. As Paul was speaking to the gathering of believers, Acts 20:9a NIV tells us: Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. Paul talked on and on! A couple of verses later, Acts 20:11 tells us: Then he [Paul] went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left. He talked all night long! Aren’t you glad our Sunday services and small groups don’t last that long! HA!
