Big vision, Ordinary People, Extraordinary God
Too small to make a difference? try sleeping with a mosquito in the room!
Starting a series in the book of Acts - boiled down to a big vision, ordinary people, extraordinary God
Big Vision v8
Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, End of the Earth
Enormous vision - Northern Europe 250,000 villages, towns and cities without an evangelical witness
King’s Lynn 47,000 people who don’t know Jesus
Abstract to concrete - What about your kids, grandkids, parents, friends?
Vision has to be bigger than us so it’s God
Ordinary people v11
Men of Galilee v11
Unschooled, ordinary men 4:13
Don’t understand the vision v6
Pitifully mediocre for the task!
Old Testament has 8,000 promises, one per 3 verses - one encapsulates them all v4 Promise of the Father
Filled with power - Isa 60:22-61:1
Power to be witnesses not to do some witnessing
God’s plan is a big vision done by ordinary people in the power of an extraordinary God - refuses to do it any other way
What is a contemporary application of Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Ends of the Earth? What do they symbolise in terms of who we are reaching?
Why does God use ordinary men and women like us?
Why are all the promises of God encapsulated in the promise of the Father Acts 1:4?
What’s the difference between being a witness and doing witnessing?
Pray for each other to be filled again with power to be witnesses
