IN SEARCH OF JESUS: GETTING US STARTED

MATTHEW 4: 18-22

SUNDAY PM SERVICE MARCH 28, 2004

INTRODUCTION:

TRANSITION THOUGHT:

THESIS SENTENCE: JESUS’ MINISTRY IS ABOUT SMALL GROUP PARTICIPATION!

I. GETTING US STARTED IS THE CALLER LUKE 4:31-5:11

A. THE CALLER IS THE ONE WHO DRIVES OUT EVIL DEMONS

B. THE CALLER IS THE ONE WHO HEALS MANY

C. THE CALLER IS THE ONE WHO PREACHES GOOD NEWS

D. THE CALLER IS THE LAMB OF GOD (John 1:29-37)

ILLUSTRATION:

II. GETTING US STARTED IS THE CALL

A. THE CALL IS TO SEE (John 1:35-42)

A. THE CALL IS TO FOLLOW (Matthew 4: 19)

B. THE CALL IS TO FEARLESSNESS (Luke 5: 4-10)

C. THE CALL IS TO RECKLESS ABANDONEMENT (Matthew 4:20-22/Luke 5:11)

D. THE CALL IS TO TRANSFORMATION (John 1:42-51)

III. GETTING US STARTED IS COMMAND

A. THE COMMAND IS TO FISH FOR MEN (Matthew 4:19

B. THE COMMAND IS TO CATCH (Luke 5: 10)

C. THE COMMAND IS FOR US: THE GREAT COMMISHION (MATTHEW 28: 18-20)

CONCLUSION: Jesus never intended to work alone. For some reason God wants us involved! He has chosen to call us and to work through us to reach others. We, just like the original 12 have been called to follow Jesus. ARE YOU FOLLOWING HIM? ARE YOU FISHING? ARE YOU CATCHING ANY? WILL YOU START TODAY? LET US PRAY!
