Big Thought Today: Let’s Make Room

Galatians 2:6 “the leaders of the church had nothing to add to what I was preaching. 7 Instead, they saw that God had given me the responsibility of preaching the gospel to the Gentiles, just as he had given Peter the responsibility of preaching to the Jews. 8 For the same God who worked through Peter as the apostle to the Jews also worked through me as the apostle to the Gentiles. 9 In fact, James, Peter, & John, who were known as pillars of the church, recognized the gift God had given me, & they accepted Barnabas & me as their co-workers. They encouraged us to keep preaching to the Gentiles, while they continued their work with the Jews. 10 Their only suggestion was that we keep on helping the poor, which I have always been eager to do.”

1. Give Them Our Time

When we give people our time, we give God an opportunity to work.  Galatians 2:2, Proverbs 3:6

2. Recognize Their Gift

As we spend time with people, God will reveal their gifts & talents & we can help people reach their full potential in Christ.  Galatians 2:7, 9, Ephesians 2:10

3. Accept Them

Sometimes we can get used to how things are & our routines we go through each week.  If we’re not careful, this can create a mindset of ‘Us four & no more!’ which doesn’t make room for the Lord to add to our family.  Galatians 2:9, Mark 9:38-40, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 Timothy 2:1, John 3:16

4. Encourage Them

We are called to be ‘Encouragers’.  Those who give words of support, confidence & hope.  Galatians 2:9

Next Steps

1. “What is Jesus speaking to me through this teaching today?”

2. “How can I apply this to my life?”  

3. “Who can I share what I’ve learned today with?”
