God Calls Nobodies

Matthew 1:18-25

There are many wise men and women of God, but no one is wiser than God.

Homework:  
Read: 1 Samuel 1-3
Memorize: 1 Samuel 2:2
 
Apply:
The Lord has been using those who are insignificant in the eyes of the world to do His greatest work through in times past and presently. This means God is calling His people to make themselves available to do His will in their lives. Therefore, read God’s Word daily for instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17); and expect that God desires to use you to accomplish the Father’s will each day (Ephesians 2:10). How are you intentionally making yourself available to be used of God today?

Evangelism is Following God Alone

Galatians 1:11-17 

There are many wise men and women of God, but no one is wiser than God.

Homework:  
Read: Jeremiah 26-28
Memorize: Jeremiah 26:2
 
Apply:

The Gospel we have received by the power of the Holy Spirit through the written Word of God must be proclaimed truthfully. A person can only share the lordship of Christ whenever they have made Him Lord of their life; they can only share the joy and peace of Christ whenever they have received it themselves. We do not share the best theories of mankind about God, but we share who God is according to the Scripture. Share Christ with everyone by living under the authority of God’s written Word so others will be able to see your testimony long before they hear your testimony.

Evangelism is Sharing Good News

2 Timothy 4:1-8
 

Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ is a calling for the entire body of Christ.

Homework:  
Read: Jeremiah 29-31
Memorize: Jeremiah 31:33
 
Apply:

The new covenant which has been ratified by Christ’s blood has made all who believe on the name of God’s Son bearers of Good News. God’s children must always be prepared to share what they know about Christ, what they have seen Christ do, and what they have heard about Christ they know to be true as disciple makers, ambassadors, and ministers of reconciliation (Matthew 28:19-20;    2 Corinthians 5:18). How are you going to intentionally fulfill these roles each day this week?

Evangelism is Knowing God as Lord

 
God’s people must demonstrate God’s authority over creation in surrender to His will.
Homework:  
Read: Revelation 10-12
Memorize: Revelation 10:11
 
Apply:

Ambassadors of God must display the same character of God in their life. Therefore, the witness of the Church will be calm faithfulness in carrying out the law of Christ to love and to be holy as God is holy by the power of His Spirit residing in those who trust in Christ (Galatians 6:1-2; 1 Peter 1:13-16). The most effective witness to the authority of God is the people of God living in obedience even when it causes them to suffer (1 Peter 4:1-4).

Be Confident in God

There is no authentic sharing of Christ if there is no confidence in God’s identity.
Homework:  
Read: John 10-12
Memorize: John 11:25
 
Apply:
The trust God’s people place in Him is a witness to His trustworthiness, provision, and eternal life that He  provides. Therefore, the people of God must live daily in the hope they have in Him and not in the fear and anxiousness of those who have   trusted in idols and human logic to satisfy their spiritual needs. Those who claim to believe Jesus is the   resurrection and the life, must live in that reality daily by trusting in Him more than themselves.

Life Through Death & Resurrection 

We celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection because He provides life for those who are dead in their sins who choose to believe on Him.
 
Homework:  
Read: Leviticus 1-3
Memorize: Leviticus 3:2
 
Apply:
Christ has made atonement for sins so that people do not have to live in their sins, but have life in spite of their sin. Therefore, take time each morning to spend time praising God for the joy of living without the weight of sins bondage by: 1) remember God is with you because of Christ’s Spirit, 2) show faith in God by leaning upon His understanding and not your own, and 3) share how you have seen God in the past few days encouraging you, correcting you, and/or teaching you.
