How would others describe your household? As Paul addressed the self-centered Corinthians, he pointed to the household of Stephanas as a distinguished example of Christian love. In this message, Alistair Begg takes a closer look at the qualities that made this ordinary Christian family stand out in their church and community. One of the most convincing ways we can share our faith is by openly maintaining a lifestyle of love, service, and devotion to the Lord Jesus.
15Now I urge you, brothers3—you know that the household4 of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the service of the saints— 16be subject to such as these, and to every fellow worker and laborer. 17I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have made up for your absence, 18for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. Give recognition to such people.
