4 Questions Everyone Must Wrestle With

A couple months ago I took a day off after having gone for 20 days straight...I went to church on my day off - here are the notes from my church service at Elevation's Online Service:

  • What's in your hand?- Exodus 4 - The Question of Calling. Whatever you have in your hand, throw it down at God's feet and let him do what He wants to do with it. You have to find the thing that you have in your hand, offer it to the Lord and let Him turn it into something. You don't have to be able to preach, you have to do what you can with what you have now. Eph 2:10
  • Am I now trying to win the approval of men or of God? - The Question of Acceptance. Gal. 1:10. You cannot live for the approval of men and the approval of God - you must choose to serve one or another. Illustration using Kanye - "Who cares what you think?" - "It's not your award to give anyway." - In similar fashion, who cares what the opinion of others is? You are approved by God - it's settled!
  • How can a young man keep his way pure? - Ps. 119:9 - The Question of Integrity - Purity is a gift from Jesus and you walk in it - you don't earn it. How can a man do this? By living according to your word!
  • Who do you say I am? - The Question of Eternity - Mat. 16:15-16. If you get this one wrong, the others don't matter. So many misconceptions about who Jesus is. God has not sent a universal friend request on facebook - He's looking for followers, not friends.
This was a message taught by Pastor Steven Furtick to the students in their church - it has universal application!

Have you answered these questions?

Let's talk about it...
