Story Time: Flat Tire
When was the last time you shared the gospel?
When was the last time you proclaimed the Good news?
God is asking who can I send?
Do you really think you were rescued just to sit on the sidelines?
Do you believe you were ransomed from Hell to just sit on a pew?
Billy Graham said: Our faith becomes stronger as we express it’s a growing faith is a sharing faith”.
Dwight L Moody: When a man is filled with the word of God you cannot keep him still. If a man has got the word, he must speak or die.
Mark 13:10 And the Gospel must first be preached to all nation.
I get to bring God’s word to the nation!
Exodus 3:1-4 NIV “Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up.
So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.” When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!” And Moses said, “Here I am”.
Step One To Finding Your fire
God finds Moses In Midian, but he was from Egypt.
- REMEMBER WHERE YOU ARE FROM
- For some of us Our Fire will cost us our comfort.
Step Two Get Back to Intimacy
“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground. Exodus 3:5 NIV
Step Three: You are The Body of Christ
God is broken-hearted by the state of the world. And is sending you into it!
Step 4 Use What You Have!
Exodus 4 :1
Moses answered, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to you?”
2 Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”
“A staff,” he replied.
What is in your hand?
God wants to use where you are, what you are and what you have.
