Pursuing God’s Plan & Purpose
Main Thing to Know:
Who has God called and created me to be?
1. God has a plan unique for you
His plan & purpose are:
• Designed for you
. . . but one thing I do (v. 13)
• Possible for you
. . . reaching forward . . . I press toward (v. 13-14)
• Best for you
. . . the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (v. 14)
2. God’s plan involves spiritual gifts
God-given abilities that enable you to serve others and strengthen the local church
What about natural talents & skills?
As followers of Jesus, we are called:
To Discover our spiritual gifts
To Deploy our spiritual gifts
Among other purposes, “we are saved to serve.” To equip for service, God gives one or more spiritual gifts to every child of His. He does not want “deadwood” in His church.
3. God’s plan always requires obedience
Obedience is the opener of eyes.
So……….Who has God called & created YOU to be?
