CHANGING or BEING CHANGED (Part 6)
Romans 12:2 (ESV)
2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind…
1 Samuel 10:6
6 The Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you…and you will be changed into a different person.
Are we CHANGING (conforming more and more to the things of this world) or are we BEING CHANGED (transformed) by the power of God?
A CHANGED PURPOSE… Peter
KEY TEXTS: Luke 5:1-11; 1 Samuel 3
Our purpose can either be shaped by the world or it can be directed by God. So, you can conform to the purpose the world says you should have (and by the world I mean culture, friends, family, your own thoughts and desires, circumstances, your past, your talents) or you can allow God to transform your purpose into what He wants it to be.
We refer to the vehicle that God uses to change our purpose as HIS CALL on our lives.
Today I want to talk to you about letting God change your purpose by responding to HIS CALL.
• His Call GETS your ATTENTION
• His Call GAINS your TRUST
• His Call GRIPS your HEART
• His Call GRASPS your ALLEGIANCE
• His Call GIVES you your ASSIGMENT
