Leaving the 99

Leaving the 99 #6
Duration:31 mins 23 secs
Search & Rescue...Leaving the 99 #6

You MUST break barriers to live your life on mission with Jesus.

What is holding you back from telling people about Jesus?
  • Luke 14:12-24
  • Whatever is important to do is rarely easy.
Four basic excuses...

1. FEAR
  • Most experts say when threatened each of have a flight or fight instinct, the reality is we have another instinct...freeze.
  • Acts 4:8-13; Acts 4:29; Acts 4:31
2. BUSYNESS
  • Matthew 13:22
How do we remove this excuse?
1. Set some priorities
2. Leverage the time you already spend for kingdom purposes.
 
3. INDIFFERENCE
  • Apatheism – apathy toward the things of God.
How is your compassion for people far from God? Romans 9:3; Philippians 2:12-13
 
The CURE for an indifferent heart...
1. Look at Jesus
2. Work on your relationship with God
3. Ask God to give you a burden for the people around you who don't know Jesus.

4. DISOBEDIENCE
  • Romans 1:14-15
  • The word obligated actually means to be a debtor or to pay back something owed.
  • Matthew 21:28-31
Made for MORE...
  • We think way to small.
  • God's vision is that you would use this one life he has given you in the one place and time he has placed you for the things that matter most.
  • Don't settle for LESSER visions. Don't give you best effort, enthusiasm, and energy to temporary things.
