Special Qualities For Service

Key Verse

 “Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business (Acts 6: 3).

Text — Acts6:1-7


Isabella Lilias Trotter born in July 1853 was a British Artist and a missionary. Her paintings and other art works can still be found in the Asmolean Museum in Oxford, England.  On her life of sacrifice and great commitment to the gospel, Paula Hemphill wrote, “In radical obedience, she left a promising artisitic career and the comforts of England for a life of missionary service in Algeria.” In Algeria, Trotter had to study Arabic for effectiveness in the gospel work. She spent time praying for the conversion of people by the power of the Holy Ghost, writing tracts, translating and editing the gospels of John and Luke into simple Arabic language for the ordinary people. Her life continues to inspire so many believers today. She died in 1928.

From our text of today and the life of Isabella, we can see some special qualities for Christian service. They are: commitment to Christ and passion for souls, being full of wisdom and the Holy Ghost, sacrifice, faithfulness, moral uprightness, and diligence. Do you possess these special qualities like Isabella, Stephen and Philip? Pray to possess them.
