WHAT DO WE LEARN ABOUT God?

God is going ahead and pursuing People to prepare them to hear about him

God is looking for people who are connected to Him to GO reach others

 

HOW FAR will God go to reach someone?

LIKE with Philip, God will break down OUR WALLS OF segregation and racism and use them to reach people

Like with Saul, God will transform a radical fundamentalist terrorist and use them to reach people

Like with Peter, God will speak to a "good person" and use them to reach people

 

WHAT DO WE KNOW about Jesus?

We don't find Jesus, he finds us

We can even say "NO" to Jesus because He found us so we could know about Him

Jesus leaves 99 sheep who are safe in the fold to go after 1 who is lost and lonely and in danger

When we couldn't come to Jesus because of our sin, Jesus came to us

 

what do we learn about ourselves?

God comes after us

God wants to use us to reach others

we need to be in a position to hear him say 'GO!' - connected and ready to obey

 

 

So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”
2 Corinthians 5:20 (NLT)
 

You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit.

John 15:16a (NLT)

 

are you ready to be transformed?

Are you in a position to hear God say 'GO!'?

Do you see God preparing people for you to GO and show them who He is?

will you obey?
