Have you ever tried to find a substitute for a tool? You know, a butter knife instead of a screwdriver, a shoe instead of hammer, or a key instead of knife. No matter the outcome, it would have been better to use the right tool for the job.
In Acts 6:1-7 the disciples come to the realization they need another tool in order for the ministry of the church go on smoothly. They were aware of a specific problem, but rather than try to fix it themselves with the wrong tool they led the people to set up a few good men to make sure the problem was addressed. These were not just any group of seven men; each one had a specific gift which made them the right tool for the job.
Please join us this Sunday, January 22, at 10:45 a.m. as we examine the biblical call and purpose of deacons in the church. I hope to see you this week at Living Oaks Baptist Church.
