Biblical process of moving to extraordinary

1. Present yourself to the Lord.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

2. Be Willing to Stay

1 Corinthians 7:17 (NIV)
….. each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.

    • Bible’s most explicit teaching about staying and going.

Thought: If you’re not willing to be used in your current situation you’re not worthy to be trusted somewhere else. Lasting fruit usually comes from a lasting presence.

    • There’s a spiritual power in staying put.

3. Be Willing to Be Sent (SENT not GO: Big Difference)

    • Willing to Go: You are in control: You tend to know where you’re going.
    • Willing to be Sent: God is in control: Not sure what you’re getting yourself into.

Isaiah 6:8 (NIV)
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    • Whom shall I sendGod looking for worthy and willing.

5. Be Willing to Intercede

1 Timothy 2:1 (NIV)
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people.

Hebrews 7:25 (NIV)
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

Thought: If you want God to prepare you, equip you, oversee you, and intercede for you; then you must be willing to do the same for others.
