Summary: You have a mission? can you identify your mission? If not how will you complete what God has in store for you. Put feet on your dreams...
#2 EUREKA THE CALL: MY APPROACH?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
Thanks to Doctor Beth Grant for the fodder for this lesson.
I HAVE FOUND IT... I CLAIM IT...
I. HAVE YOU HEARD THE CALL?
TO BE SENT.
Assigned task to an individual or a group.
To have a purpose or plan.
B. THE BIBLE CALLS ALL BELIEVERS TO SOME KIND OF MISSION...
C. DREAM A NEW DREAM
Acts 16:9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia,
and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia,
assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.
D. DO YOU KNOW YOUR MISSION?
Our enemy would love to keep hid your mission so that you will never fulfill God's plan for you.
E. What are you doing to prepare yourself wisely for YOUR MISSION?
F. WILL WE BE DEAF TO THE CALL?
II. WE HAVE A COMMISSION... A GREAT COMMISSION...
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in
heaven and in earth.
 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am
with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
III. WE HAVE MANY SPIRITUAL LONE RANGERS RUNNING AROUND LIKE A CHICKEN
WITH THEIR HEAD CUT OFF.
YOU CAN NEVER FULLY FULFILL GOD'S CALL ALONE.
A. THE GREAT PROPHET ELIJAH WAS VERY TIRED AND HE RAN UNTIL HE DROPPED.
ELIJAH HAD A DEPRESSION FIT...
1 Kings 19:14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the
children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets
with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
B. GOD REMINDED ELIJAH: HE WAS PART OF A TEAM...
1 Kings 19:18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not
bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
IV. WHAT APPROACH SHALL WE TAKE?
IN WHAT VIEW OF SELF WILL YOU INVEST?
WILL WE SUBMIT TO ACCOUNTIBILITY?
WILL WE GROW A TEAM THAT WILL ADVANCE THE WORK OF GOD'S KINGDOM?
A. JESUS CLEARLY DEFINES WHAT IT TAKES TO HAVE SUCCESSFUL MINISTRY.
B. By what STYLE or ACCEPTABLE NORM shall LEADERS FOLLOW.
Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him
deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my
sake shall find it.
1. WE FIND THE I SELF TO MINISTRY TO DOMAIN THE AMERICAN CHURCH.
WE FIND THE FIRST APPROACH TO THE FAMILY, THE CHURCH, AND SOCIETY TO
BE I SELF... THE MOTTO WOULD BE: WHAT CAN THIS DO FOR ME?
This would be diagramed as many little circles detached from each other.
A. I SELF is a western world typical view to the approach to MINISTRY.
This is the norm for the USA church.
B. I SELF must find SELF... WHO AM I...
I WILL LEARN WHO I REALLY AM BY MYSELF...
C. I SELF will be TOTALLY FOCUSED on INDIVIDUALISM and THINKING FOR MYSELF...
D. I SELF INDIVIDUALS are DEMANDING and desire their OWN WAY.
E. I SELF PEOPLE HAVE MANY TROPHIES of achievement and performance.
F. WE SEE THE LOVE OF AN INDEPENDENT SPIRIT OF MINIISTRY... MAVERICK
1. The minister refuses to be subject to authority.
2. Authority is view as an attempt to control.
3. I want to do my own thing, no one's opinion matters but mine.
4. Individuals refuse to align with duties/obligations...
5. Self-reliant, self-will, a REAL MAVERICK.
G. AS A WHOLE I SELF PEOPLE GIVE LITTLE, TAKE EXPECT OTHERS TO GIVE
TO THEM AND PLEASE THEIR PLAN.
H. I SELF people build weak relationships... I SELF PEOPLE TEND TO MAKE NO
CONNECTION TO THE GROUP... unless it benefits me...
J. I SELF PEOPLE seldom commit to long term work...
THEIR EXCUSE IS OFTEN HEARD...MY NEEDS ARE NOT BEING MET...
K. I SELF PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A BIGGER CROWD AND A BETTER
2. WE FIND THE SECOND METHOD OF MINISTRY WITH IN THE CHURCH TO BE
THE WE SELF CROWD.... THOSE INVOLVED IN WE SELF MINISTRY MOTTO
WOULD BE: IT IS ALL ABOUT US...
THE DIAGRAM OF THIS GROUP WOULD BE CIRCLLES ALL INTER-CONNECTED.
A. LIFE IS ALL ABOUT US... 2/3 OF THE WORLD OUT OF THE USA IS PROBABLY
