Spending time thinking about how I respond to God's placing His servants where He chooses. In Acts 1:12-26, Luke reported the events after the death of Judas and the ascension of Christ. The apostles prayed He would show them who He would choose to replace Judas.
"from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place."
Fifth, they submitted to the Lord using their method.
"Matthias...was numbered with the eleven apostles."
I am preparing with our Faith Student Movement Serve missions team from Faith Baptist Church near Tiajuana, Mexico July 16-30. We are using a Youthmark text by Brian Aaby to work through faith-building accounts from Acts.
One of the early studies is from this text in Acts 1. Brian asked who the youth might choose from our church to participate in servant-leadership roles on a missions trip. They are also asked who they and we would count on for help when we really need it.
He is asking if I might be one in our church family people would count on.
