1. Understanding the Spirit of This House
Acts 17:6-7 …“These who have turned the world upside down have come here too. Jason has harbored them, and these are all acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying there is another king—Jesus.”
● The larger the vision, the larger the heart
● Like David’s Mighty Men – we don’t retreat we stand and fight
2. I Am Making Myself Available Because the Lord Has Need of Me
Matthew 21:1-3 NKJV “…then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. and if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”
Is 6:8 NKJV Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
● Jesus gives us a vision of something larger than ourselves
● Don’t allow yourself to get “TIED UP” in life
● If He chose us, then He will qualify us
1 Cor 1:28-29 NIV God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
1 Cor 9:19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more;
3. It All Starts and Ends With Souls
Ps 49:8-9 (tlb) For a soul is far too precious to be ransomed by mere earthly wealth. There is not enough of it in all the earth to buy eternal life for just one soul, to keep it out of hell.
● There is no establishing, discipling, or multiplying without souls
● How precious is the soul at the altar? How does God see the altar call?
Matt 9:35-38 "But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. So pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. #discipleshiprevival
