Summary: How to become envolved in God’s Work

IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?

I SAM 17:29

INTRO - READ: THE STORY - ALL CHAPTER 17

I. GOD’S MAN WAS ABLE TO SEE THE CAUSE VS 26 & 29

1. DO WE SEE THE CAUSES THAT GOD SEES ?

* 200,000 PEOPLE IN THE WORLD DIE EVERY DAY

OR A TOTAL OF 73 MILLION SOULS ENTER

ETERNITY EACH YEAR

* THE ENTIRE CHRISTIAN CHURCH BARELY WINS 5

PERCENT OF THIS NUMBER OF PEOPLE TO

CHRIST EACH YEAR.

* GOD SEES THAT EACH YEAR THAT HE DELAYS HIS

COMING, 75 TO 90 PERCENT OF THE

PEOPLE WHO DIE ARE GOING TO A DEVILS HELL!

* CONCERNING THE FIRST INSTITUTION GOD

ESTABLISHED, GOD SEES THAT IN 1972 OUT OF

EVERY 1000 MARRAGES IN THE UNITED STATES,

THAT 656 ENDED IN DIVORCE!

* GOD SEES OUR CHILDREN WATCHING TV 6-8 HRS

PER DAY AND BARELY LOOKING AT THE BIBLE.

* GOD KNOWS THAT THE AVERAGE SOUTHERN BAPTIST

ONLY GIVES $170.00 PER YEAR TO HIS

WORK! THAT AMERICANS SPEND MORE ON BUBBLE

GUM THAN THEY SEND TO MISSIONS!

* GOD KNOWS THAT IN OUR TOWN, ONLY ABOUT 25

PERCENT ARE CHRISTIANS, AND THAT OUT OF

THOSE, ONLY 25 PERCENT ARE ACTIVE, AND OF

THOSE ONLY ABOUT 25% ARE DOING ALL THE WORK!

2. THE CRYING NEED TODAY IS TO GET CHRISTIANS TO

GROW UP AND GET ENVOLVED!

3. ARE THERE ANY CAUSES IN YOUR LIFE?

II. THE CAUSE BECAME MORE IMPORTANT THAN DAVIDS LIFE

(VS 32)

1. MOST THINGS OF VALUE REQUIRE RISK

2. OFTEN THE REWARD IS A FUNCTION OF THE RISK

3. HOW IMPORTANT ARE YOUR CAUSES?

III. NOTICE THE HELP DAVID RECEIVED FROM THE "STRONG"

(VS 37)

1. WHO CAN WE DEPEND ON?

IV. NOTICE DAVID USED ONLY THE WEAPONS OF FAITH! VS 45

1, IT IS A MISTAKE TO UNDERTAKE ANY TASK FOR GOD

WITHOUT FAITH.

2. HOW MUCH FAITH DO WE NEED?

(JUST ENOUGH TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP)

V. DAVID WON BECAUSE HE WANTED TO EXHALT GOD

1. GOD WILL FIGHT FOR YOU IF YOUR MOTIVES ARE RIGHT!

2. WE ARE TO SERVE: IN JESUS NAME, IN THE POWER OF

THE HOLY SPRIT, FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, OUT OF A

MOTIVE OF LOVE, FOR THE SAKE OF SOULS

3. ONE FINAL QUESTION: IS THERE NOT A CAUSE?
