The Power to Keep Hanging In There

Colossians 1:9-12
New International Version (NIV)
For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.
~~~~~
Something we should ask the HOLY SPIRIT for
when we pray...
More endurance, more patience, and more joy!

Endurance to bear our tough situations...
Patience to deal with people who torment us...
The Joy of the Lord while facing every trial...

Discussion: Colossians 1: 9-14
 The apostle was constant in prayer, that the believers might be filled with the knowledge of God's will, in all wisdom. Good words will not do without good works. He who undertakes to give strength to his people, is a God of power, and of glorious power. The blessed Spirit is the author of this. In praying for spiritual strength, we are not straitened, or confined in the promises, and should not be so in our hopes and desires. The grace of God in the hearts of believers is the power of God; and there is glory in this power. The special use of this strength was for sufferings. There is work to be done, even when we are suffering. Amidst all their trials they gave thanks to the Father of our Lord Jesus, whose special grace fitted them to partake of the inheritance provided for the saints. To bring about this change, those were made willing subjects of Christ, who were slaves of Satan. All who are designed for heaven hereafter, are prepared for heaven now. Those who have the inheritance of sons, have the education of sons, and the disposition of sons. By faith in Christ they enjoyed this redemption, as the purchase of his atoning blood, whereby forgiveness of sins, and all other spiritual blessings were bestowed. Surely then we shall deem it a favour to be delivered from Satan's kingdom and brought into that of Christ, knowing that all trials will soon end, and that every believer will be found among those who come out of great tribulation.

The Book of ACTS

Kerygma: Preaching/Message/Proclamation
Didache: Apostles Doctrine/Teachings/Instructions

In the Book of ACTS, the message through descriptive stories are 
Accompanied by Signs and Wonders.

The message proclaims the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
As disciples we are to boldly lift up the name of JESUS and proclaim who He is.

The Spirit of God is with us and has never left us, New Testament believers.

The indwelling spirit, working through mankind professing Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior, is indeed the Church.   
Though often we relate just to our "brick and mortar" buildings as the Church, it is best described as being called out, dedicated to the Lord, united with Christ through spiritual baptism. (1 Corinthians 12:13, "by one spirit we are all baptized into one body")
In the book of Acts we learn how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things, and that imperfect persons are used by God to deliver the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Acts 2: 38-47 (New KJV)
38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

A Vital Church Grows

40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41 Then those who gladly[g] received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church[h] daily those who were being saved.


The church was and the church still IS
We must not differ from these same examples.
The CHURCH must continue and continue in this same fellowship.
