Vision 2010 : Knowing God by Joining Him at Work Around You

December 12, 2010 Speaker: Gibson Largent Series: Vision

Topic: Topical Passage: John 17:3–17:3

Gibson Largent teaches on knowing God by joining him at work around you.  Below are sermon notes and an outline of the message.

Discipleship: Knowing God by joining Him at work around you

John 5:17: “But Jesus answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.”

John 17:3: “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

 

Is God at work around you?  How can you tell?  How can you join Him in His work?

 

1. Understand that God is sovereign and often works through                                               

Acts 8:26-40 – Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch

 

2. Trust in God through                                                                     

John 9:1-7 – Jesus heals a man born blind

 

3. Seek God consistently and confidently because He works in                                                to His children

Luke 18:1 – “And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart...”

Matthew 7:7-11 – “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

 

4. Recognize an unusual                       by God or a renewed                     in God as Him at work

John 6:44-45 – “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day. It is written in the Prophets, ‘And they will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me.”

Application

1.       Open your eyes to see where God is at work

2.       Join Him where you see Him working – working with God increases your intimacy with God

3.       Seek Him fervently – start a prayer list and watch how He responds

4.       Put yourself in a position to see God at work – attend church, Bible studies, small groups, connection services; start spiritual conversations
