Epiphany: Unpacking the Equipment

Epiphany: Unpacking the Equipment Sermon Audio Here

1 Cor.1:1-9

I’m married to a list-maker: when we’re preparing for a long trip, she (and many others like her) use lists to keep track of what is needed for the trip. Do you realize what’s on YOUR checklist already?

Your Checklist in Christ Includes:

What You Are ~ 1 Cor.1:1-3

  • v2 you ARE sanctified (to make or declare holy);
  •     you ARE called (appointed, placed on purpose)

What You Have ~ 1 Cor.1:4-9

  • v4 Grace (not generally to all, but specifically TO YOU)
  • v5 Enrichment (in Christ)
  • v6 Confirmation (stability)
  • v7 Completeness (of spiritual gifts)
  • v8 Blamelessness (no one has the right to impeach you)
  • v9 Fellowship (partnership – you share in His work & benefits)

Isaiah 49:5~ And now the LORD says– he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength…

God has had plans for your life before you were born; He knows what He’s doing, giving you what you’ve been given to accomplish what He has in mind for you!
