THE MESSAGE

MAN’S EXTREMITY IS GOD’S OPPORTUNITY

1.SIN

John 8:3-4,11 Luke 19:5-10

When Man is facing destruction because of his sins there is still hope for him in God.The woman caught in adultery was facing death by stoning.But Jesus saved her and transformed her life. Zacheus the tax

collector was hated and despised.He was left to live and die in his sins.But Jesus saved him and transformed his life.Those who are in extremity because of their sins need not panic.They can come to Jesus who will rescue them.

2.SICKNESS

Mark 5:22-23 ,35-36

When Man is facing destruction because of his sickness there is still hope for him in God.The daughter of jairus was facing death because of her sickness. She died even before Jesus could reach her home. but her extremity was an opportunity for Jesus to demonstrate his power by raising her from the dead.

3.SORROW

I Chronicles 4:9-10 Exodus 2:23-25

When man is facing unbearable sorrow and suffering there is still hope for him in God. The people of Israel were in great suffering in Egypt. But they were not left alone. God delivered them from Egypt by

his great power.

4.SHAME

I Samuel 1;5-7,10

When man is facing great shame and humiliation there is still hope for him in God. Hannah was constantly tormented and humilated because she was barren. She went and wept before God to take away her reproach.

God answered her cry and granted her a son called Samuel who became a great prophet in Israel. her humiliation was turned into a great honour for her as she became the proud mother of a great prophet.

5.SEARCHING

Genesis 22:1-2 , 9-13

When Man is searched and tested by God it is not his destruction .There is still hope for him in God. Abraham was tested by God. God asked him to sacrifice his only son Isaac. Isaac was the son of promise born in his old age. Now it looked as though all the promises of God would fail with the death of Isaac.As Abraham lifted the sword to slay his son the angel of the Lord told him to stop. Because Abraham had proved his obedience great promises were bestowed on Him and his generation. The difficult tests we face and overcome are an opportunity for God to shower his blessings on us.

6.SCARCITY

John 2;1-9 Matthew 14:15 - 20

When Man is facing scarcity there is still hope for him in God. At the wedding in Cana , there was a scarcity of wine. This scarcity became an opportunity for Jesus to reveal his glory and strengthen the

faith of his disciples. We should consider our scarcity as an opportunity for God to reveal his glory and expect a miracle.

7.SHOCK

II Chronicles 20 : 1-4

When Man is facing a shocking situation there is still hope for him in God. King Jehoshophat received a shocking news that a huge army was coming against them. He threw himself at the mercy of God to save his

nation from forces which were too strong for them. God responded by taking responsibility for the whole situation. he caused the enemies to fight among themselves and destroy themselves. Thus the shocking

situations we face can become an opportunity for God to demonstrate his power.
