Learn to Discern: Showing God’s Will

Learn to Discern: Showing God’s Will Sermon Audio Here

Jeremiah 1:4-10 / 1 Timothy 4:11-16

Ed Faubert is what you call a “cupper”—in layman’s terms, he’s a coffee-taster. And his perspicacious taste buds are actually certified by the state of New York! So refined is Faubert’s sense of taste for coffee that even while blindfolded, he can take one sip of coffee and tell you “not just that it is from Guatemala, but from what state it comes, at what altitude it was grown, and on what mountain.”

Wanna Grow?

Go! ~ Jeremiah 1:4-10

  • 4/5 God chooses us to serve (not dependent on YOU)
  • 6/7 God does the sending (not your responsibility)
  • 8/10 God’s word is effective (not your job to change others)

Show! ~ 1 Timothy 4:11-16

  • 11/12 set an example: ALL parts of your life are fair game
  • 13 devote yourself: what does that look like in YOUR life?
  • 14/15 wholly~holy pun: giving ourselves is part of the sanctification process:
    • having others watch HOW you serve the Lord is itself a PART of serving the Lord
  • 16 carefully persevere: keep on keeping on

KNOWING a fact doesn’t change a life; IMPLEMENTING it does.
