THE ABUNDANT LIFE
“Blessed To Tell His Story”
Pastor Duane Cross | 05.17.15
YOU ARE BLESSED BY GOD TO BE AN AMBASSADOR OF JESUS CHRIST
“Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews... To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.” - 1 Corinthians 9:19-20a, 22-23
I) SAMARITAN WOMAN: “Come and See.”
“Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, ‘Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?’ They came out of the town and made their way toward him.” - John 4:28-30 “Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony.” - John 4:39
II) BLIND MAN: Share your story.
“Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” - John 9:25
III) DORCAS: Give your life away.
“In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which when translated, is Dorcas), who was always doing good and helping the poor.” - Acts 9:36
IV) PETER: Get in someone’s face.
“Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins... With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, ‘Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.’” - Acts 2:38, 40
“For I am ever in labor until Christ is formed in you.” - Galatians 4:19
