POTENTIAL

POTENTIAL- POSSIBILITY OF DOING OR BECOMING SOMETHING

INTRO: POTTER AND THE CLAY.

1: WHAT COULD YOU DO?

A) DID THE CLAY EVER IMAGINE IT COULD BECOME A POT?

B) DID THE CLAY EVER IMAGINE IT COULD BECOME A POT THAT WOULD HOLD FERTILE SOIL?

C) DID IT EVER IMAGINE IT COULD HELP A PLANT GROW?

D) DID IT EVER IMAGINE THAT IT COULD HELP THE PLANT BEAR FRUIT?

POINT: CLAY IN IT’S COMMON FORM IS SIMPLE YET IT’S UNRIVALED IN POTENTIAL. A SIMPLE GLOB OF CLAY COULD POSSIBLY BECOME A CUP YOU DRINK FROM. OR IT COULD BECOME A PLATE YOU EAT FROM. CLAY IS SIMPLE, IT CAN’T IMAGINE THE POTENTIAL IT HAS OR THE PLACES OR PEOPLE IT WILL ENCOUNTER. BUT YOU AND I CAN!!!!!!!!!

2: ISAIAH 64:8-9

A) OUR POTTER

B) THE PROPHET CALLS GOD HIS POTTER

C) THE ONE WHO WILL FORM HIM INTO WHAT HE IS GOING TO BE.

POINT: GOD WANTS TO FORM YOU AND I INTO THE IMAGE OF HIS DEAR SON JESUS CHRIST. HE WANTS US TO ALLOW HIM TO PUT US ON THE WHEEL AND BEGIN TO TURN US AND SHAPE US AS WE MOVE ALONG IN THIS LIFE.

BODY: WHAT COULD YOU BECOME?

1: PHIL 4:13

A) I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST

B) WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THIS?

C) ANSWER: MANY FEEL AS THOUGH IT DOESN’T APPLY TO THEM

POINT: I REPRESENT YOU; YOU ARE THE ONE WHO CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. CLAIMING THIS AND PUTTING OWNERSHIP ON IT ARE WHERE WE SEEM TO HAVE THE BIGGEST HANGUP.

2: THE STRENGTH

A) MANY CHRISTIANS FEEL UNABLE

B) TOO WEAK OR NOT HOLY ENOUGH

C) JESUS CHRIST GIVES US THE POWER TO DO WHATEVER HE CALLS US TO DO.

POINT: SATAN HAS NO CONTROL OVER OUR LIVES ANYMORE. WE BELONG TO CHRIST, IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE DEVIL WILL STOP TRYING TO DESTROY OUR IVES AND HOMES. BUT IT DOES MEAN THAT WE DON’T HAVE TO FEEL INADEQUATE OR UNCAPABLE.

3: MOVE THE MOUNTAINS

A) MARK 11:23

B) BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART

C) ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD

D) MOUNTAIN NAMED DOUBT,PRIDE,GUILT,SHAME, IT’S TIME TO MOVE THEM

POINT: MANY TIMES WE AS FEEBLE PEOPLE SEEM TO FEEL AS THOUGH WE ARE HELPLESS, LIKE WE CAN’T GET TO WHERE GOD WANTS US TO BE. MOUNTAINS STAND BEFORE US AND WE’RE TOO AFRAID TO TRY AND CLIMB THEM. JESUS SAID WE COULD MOVE THOSE MOUNTAINS WITH FAITH.

CLOSING: POTENTIAL OF CLAY

1: NOT MUCH TOO LOOK AT

A) NO REAL SHAPE OR DEFINITION TO IT

B) TO THE AVERAGE PERSON IT LOOKS USELESS

C) WHY WOULD YOU WANT IT?

POINT: TO ME A GLOB OF CLAY SEEMS WORHTLESS BUT TO A SKILLED POTTER IT CAN BECOME ANYTHING.

2: HOW DOES GOD SEE US?

A) WE’RE NOT MUCH TOO LOOK AT

B) WE’RE NOT CAPABLE OF VERY MANY THINGS

C) GOD SEES POTENTIAL, GOD SEES WHAT WE CAN BECOME.

POINT: GOD IS WORKING ON ALL OF US, SOME HAVE BEEN ON THE WHEEL LONGER THAT OTHERS. SOME NEED TO REALIZE THEIR TRUE WORTH AND ALLOW JESUS CHRIST INTO THEIR HEARTS.

CONCLUSION: DID WE EVER IMAGINE THAT GOD WOULD MOLD US INTO HIS CHOSEN VESSEL, TO CARRY AND DISTRIBUTE HIS LIFE CHANGING WORD, JESUS SITS AT THE WHEEL CONSTANTLY SHAPING US INTO HIS IMAGE. IT’S TIME FOR US TO REALIZE OUR TRUE POTENTIAL!!!!
