    God Can Use Anybody

    God Can Use Anybody

    In this episode, drPHIL examines the Apostle Paul and how he kept himself usable as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
     
     
    GOD CAN USE ANYBODY!
     
    “. . . Give yourselves completely to God – every part of you – because you’ve been brought from death to life, and now you want to be used by God for good, and for his righteous purposes.” Romans 6:13 (LB/TEV)
     
     PAUL’S SECRETS OF STAYING USABLE
    2 CORINTHIANS 4:1-18
               
          1.         NEVER FORGET IT’S ALL BECAUSE OF GOD’S MERCY
          “God IN HIS MERCY has given us this ministry and work to do. That’s why
          we do not become discouraged and never give up!” 2 Corinthians 4:1
         
                MERCY: undeserved forgiveness & unearned kindness
     
          “You know what I was like . . . how I violently persecuted Christians. I did my best to get rid of             them! . . . But then something happened! For it pleased God in his kindness to choose me and call me, even before I was born! What UNDESERVED MERCY!”  Galatians 1:13+15 (NLT)
     
         
          “It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and          long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others.”
          Ephesians 2:10       (LB)
     
     
          2.         BE REAL
    “We don’t try to trick anyone, and we don’t twist the word of God. Instead we teach the truth plainly, showing everyone WHO WE REALLY ARE. Then they can know in their hearts what kind of people we are in God’s sight.” 2 Corinthians 4:2 (NLT/NCV)
     
    “The Spirit we received does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God!” Romans 8:15(NCV)
     
     
          3.         REMEMBER, IT’S NOT ABOUT ME
    “Our message is not about ourselves. It is about Jesus Christ as the Lord. We are merely your servants for Jesus’ sake.”            2 Corinthians 4:5 (GW)
     
    “We are like clay jars in which this treasure is stored. The real power comes from God and not from us.” 2 Corinthians 4:7 (CEV)
         
     
    4.   USE MY PAIN TO HELP OTHERS
    “We often suffer, but we are never crushed. Even when we don’t know what to do, we never give up. In times of trouble, God is with us, and when we are knocked down, we get up again.”
    2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (CEV)
     
    “All of these sufferings of ours are for your benefit. And the more of you who are won to Christ, the more there are to thank Him for his great mercy, and the more God gets glory!”    
    2 Corinthians 4:15 (LB)
     
    “This is why we never give up! Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For ourpresent troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever!”    2 Corinthians 4:16-17 (NLT)
     
     
    5.    STAY FOCUSED ON ETERNITY
    “These little troubles are getting us ready for an eternal glory that will make all our troubles seem like nothing.”     2 Corinthians 4:17 (CEV)
     
    “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.”  
    2 Corinthians 4:18 (NLT)
     
     
     
                 The Key to Staying Focused: SMALL GROUPS
                                       
          “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can
          stand back-to-back and conquer. And three people are even better, for
          a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”  Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NLT)
     
          Jesus: “For wherever two or

    God's Mercy and My Failures Part 2

    God's Mercy and My Failures Part 2

     
    WHAT CAUSES OUR PERSONAL FAILURES?
    3 Things Peter Did Wrong
    1. WE OVERSTATE OUR _STRENGTHS__
    2.  WE FEAR THE DISAPPROVAL OF OTHERS_
    3. WE SPEAK WITHOUT THINKING
     
    WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I FAIL?
     3 Things Peter Did Right
    1. GRIEVE
    2. LET MY SMALL GROUP SUPPORT ME
    3. CAST MYSELF ON GOD’S MERCY
     
     
    WHAT DOES JESUS DO WITH OUR FAILURES?
     
    “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you like wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned back to me again, strengthen and build up your brothers.”      Luke 22:31-32
     
    1. HE ISN’T SHOCKED
    “God certainly knows what we are made of. He bears in mind that we are dust.”        
    Psalm 103:14 (GW)
     
    2. HE PRAYS FOR US
    “Jesus is able to save us completely because (in heaven) he lives to intercede on our behalf. He is always talking to the Father, asking him to help us.” Hebrews 7:25
     
    3. HE BELIEVES IN US
    “. . . so WHEN you have repented and turned back to me again . . .” Luke 22:32
     
    “For even though a righteous man falls seven times, he will rise again!” Proverbs 24:16
     
    The Angel said, “I know you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. But he is not here—he’s risen from the dead . . . Now go tell his disciples, AND tell Peter, that he’s going ahead of you to Galilee and he’ll see you there, just as he promised!”  Mark 16:6-7
     
    4. HE SHOWS US MERCY WHEN WE’RE DOWN
    (Two weeks later) “Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea of Galilee. Seven of the disciples were there and Simon Peter said, ‘I'm going fishing.’ ‘We'll come, too’ they all said. So they went out in the boat, but even though they fished all night, they caught nothing. At dawn the disciples saw a man standing on the shore but they couldn't see it was Jesus. He called out, ‘Friends, have you caught any fish?’ ‘Not a thing!’ they replied.’ Then Jesus said, ‘Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you'll get plenty of fish!’ So they did what Jesus said to do, and they instantly caught so many fish, they couldn't even draw in the net because it was so full of fish! Then John said to Peter, ‘IT’S THE LORD!’
                “When Peter realized that he put on his tunic (for he had stripped for work), jumped into the water, and swam ashore, leaving the others in the boat to pull the loaded net to the shore, for they were only out about three hundred feet.
                “When they got to shore they saw that Jesus was cooking fish and bread over a charcoal fire. Jesus said, ‘Bring some of the fish you just caught.’ So Peter went back aboard and dragged the net ashore. It was filled with a 153 large fish, and yet the net had not torn. ‘Now come and have some breakfast!’ Jesus said. Now they were sure it really was the Lord! Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish. This was the third time Jesus had appeared to his disciples since he had been raised from the dead.”  John 21:1-14
     
    “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
     
    5. HE USES OUR FAILURES TO BUILD HIS CHURCH
    “When you have turned back to me, strengthen and build up your brothers.” Luke 22:32
     
    “After breakfast Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?’ ‘Yes, Lord, you know I love you,’ Peter replied. ‘Then FEED my lambs,’ Jesus said. Then Jesus repeated the question: ‘Peter, do you love me?’ Peter said, ‘Yes, Lord! You KNOW I love you!’ ‘Then TAKE CARE of my sheep,’ Jesus said. Then Jesus asked the same question one more time: ‘Peter, do you love me?’ Now Peter was grieved that Je
