A Sermon on Acts 6:1-4

Seven Chosen to Serve

Now in these days when the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint by the Hellenists arose against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution. And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables. Therefore, brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty. But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” (ESV)

False ideas about the making of a Christian; Christianity an exclusive and intolerant teaching; a Christian is not ashamed to be associated with Christ; the Christian will be present on the day of victory.
