Tomorrow People Part 2

--------------------------------------------------------

Welcome To Discovery Community Church

In this season of new beginnings, we are beginning a journey through the first book in the Bible: Genesis

A Life On The Move: Discovering and Stepping into your Calling

ABRAM

The story of Abram shows us what it means to be “tomorrow people.”

Today, we are talking about moving your calling or passion, or even an “inkling” from the dream stage, into reality.

Genesis 12:1 New International Version (NIV)

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

Matthew 11:28 New International Version (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Ephesians 2:10 New International Version (NIV)

10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

1 Corinthians 2:9 New International Version (NIV)

9 However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him.”

Genesis 12:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” 4 So Abram went, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran.

How to Move? 

1. Make a decision

Moving into the “passion” - “calling” - even obedience - requires a decision

Hebrews 11:25 New International Version (NIV)

He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin.

Abram heard God’s invitation and promise, internalized it, and made a decision.

What decision are you putting off?

What decision are you hoping someone else will make?

Joshua 24:15 New International Version (NIV)

...But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

2. Make a crazy step

Genesis 12:4 New International Version (NIV)

So went, as the Lord had told him;

Hebrews 11:8 New International Version (NIV)

By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

There is no story without a crazy step.

Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please God

And no faith without the risk.

James 2:26

As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

What step do you need to make?

1. Make the uncomfortable your new home

(Make a mess)

Hebrews 11:9 New International Version (NIV)

By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.

What uncomfortable is God calling you to get comfortable in?

2. Make trusting God your lifelong goal

(Make it a pattern)

Hebrews 11:17-19 New International Version (NIV)

17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, 18 even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”

We never grow up and out of our need to “live by faith”

1. There is no retiring from “faith” 

2. There is no graduating, maturing, from “faith”

3. We go from faith TO faith

AFTER THE LIVESTREAM

Pray
Jesus, I know that I have been separate from you my entire life. I have tried to pretend otherwise, but I realize today that my decisions, choices...my sin has separated me from God. I believe you are the Son of God and my only way forward. Please save me as I surrender the rest of my life into your hands. Thank you that you hear me!
