"RENEWING OUR FOCUS"
Scripture: Acts 2:38-47
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this unto-ward generation.
Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
And all that believed were together, and had all things common:
And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking brad from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.
Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved."

FOUR SPIRITUAL LAWS
Just as there are physical laws that govern the physical universe, so there are spiritual laws which govern your relationship with God:
LAW ONE: GOD LOVES YOU AND OFFERS A WONDERFUL PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
John 3:16; John 10:10
LAW TWO: MAN IS SINFUL AND SEPARATED FROM GOD. THEREFORE HE CANNOT KNOW AND EXPERIENCE GOD'S LOVE AND PLAN FOR HIS LIFE.
Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23
LAW THREE: JESUS CHRIST IS GOD'S ONLY PROVISION FOR MAN'S SIN.
THROUGH HIM YOU CAN KNOW AND EXPERIENCE GOD'S LOVE AND
PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
Romans 5:8, 1 Corinthians 15:3-6
LAW FOUR: WE MUST INDIVIDUALLY RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOUR AND
LORD; THEN WE CAN KNOW AND EXPERIENCE GOD'S LOVE AND
PLAN FOR OUR LIVES.
John 1:12; John 3:18
Having been led, as we believe by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now,
in the presence of God, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter
into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian
love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and
comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship,
ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to
the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor,
and the spread of the gospel through all nations.
We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate
our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk
circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings; faithful in our engagements,
and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive
anger; to abstain from the sale of, and use of, destructive drugs or
intoxicating drinks as a beverage; to shun pornography; to be zealous in our
efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember
one another in prayer, to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate
Christian sympathy in feeling and Christian courtesy to speech; to be slow to take
offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our
Savior to secure it without delay.
We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we will, as soon as
possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this
covenant and the principles of God's Word.
YOU MUST SHOW COMPASSION 1 Peter 3:8
Compassion means "to enter into another's passion." How can you do that? You might, for example, find out why the other person is so stressed or depressed. What's pre-occupying them, why do they feel so passionately, and how can you enter into it? Or maybe a friend has been diagnosed with an illness, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, or cancer. What should you do?
Maybe your brother or cousin is planning a high-end wedding or has bought a new home in an upscale neighborhood. Perhaps an associate just got promoted and the rest of their coworkers are envious and resentful. Attitudes are fickle at best--and outright ugly at worst. But the person who got promoted is beaming, so enter into their passion and beam with them! Maybe someone you know just lost a loved one and you don't know what to say. Don't say anything; just "be there"! The Bible says, "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep" (Romans 12:15). In other words, if someone is hurting, hurt with them, and if they're happy, be happy for them. Enter into their passion--that's how you show compassion! In an effort to look holy, sometimes we come across as harsh and insensitive. here's how Paul addressed that very issue: "Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves....clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience" (Colossians 3:12). Some of us have to work harder at this than others. But there's no opt-out clause: "All of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another." That includes you!
