The Apostolic Life

Living an apostolic life is more than just the exterior manifestations of holiness and separation from the world. Acts 17:28 “For in HIM we live, and move, and have our being”. So if we are to live a life that truly fulfills the Apostolic lifestyle, we have to first understand what it means to be apostolic. Our faith should be reflected in good and bad times. To be apostolic we must live as the apostles lived. They believed in signs following their ministry and kept the faith even in times of hardship. In the midst of prison, after they had been beaten and put in stocks, they lifted up the name of Jesus in spite of their situation. Acts 16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: … They gave God the glory he deserved.

Im PentecostalWhat does it mean to be apostolic? We
must separate ourselves from the world.
We must repent and be baptized in the
name of Jesus Christ for the Remission of
our sins as stated in Acts 2:38. However,
we need to understand that these are just
the first steps in living an apostolic life.

In looking at the lives of the Apostles we tend to focus on the signs, miracles and wonders of their ministry. We forget that they were human. Peter denied Jesus 3 times, Doubting Thomas lacked the faith to believe Jesus had risen from the dead. John 20:25 “except I see the print of the nails and put my finger into the print of the nails and thrust my hand into his side I will not believe”.

All of the apostles feared for their lives as a storm arose on the sea. Mark 4:38b …Master carest thou not that we perish? When they called on Jesus, He said “Peace be Still” and the wind ceased.

To live an apostolic life, we have to understand that life is going to throw us some trials. The Lord has promised “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee” Hebrews 13:5. Understand that we will fall, we will make mistakes, but through it all He loves us, He died for us so we could someday walk on streets of gold. We must fully submit every aspect of our lives to Him and in return we will experience the peace, love and joy that comes from following the life of the Apostles. Paul said “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the Faith” 2 Timothy 4:7.
