The Organization of The Church

The Organization of The Church

In Acts 6:1-7 we see that the early church faced challenges in meeting the needs of the congregation. Similar to how Moses took direction from his father-in-law, Jethro, here we see the Apostles come to the realization that men needed to be selected who would be able to serve in various important ways in order to keep the focus of the Apostles on the preaching of God’s word and on prayer for the congregation. In other words, the Apostles would focus on spiritual needs and the select men would focus on the more physical needs. What principles can be taken from this and how does it apply to us?
