The Call for Change

  1. 1. We’ve got to let the Word work in usso that we can work in the world.
  2. 2. Acts 2:37 ESVWhen they heard all this, they were cut to theirheart, and said to Peter and the rest of theapostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
  3. 3. So, what do we do about it?1. Our view of God needs to be HUGE!Hebrews 1:1-4Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by theprophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom heappointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. Heis the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and heupholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification forsins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become asmuch superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent thantheirs.
  4. 4. So, what do we do about it?2. Change starts with ME! When they heard all this, they were cut to their heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” • Read scripture like the world is about to end • Dwell on the scripture UNTIL it cuts to your core • Then and only then, live the changes outwardly.
  5. 5. So, what do we do about it?3. Share the change When they heard all this, they were cut to their heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” • Share what you’ve read with your “brothers” • Sacrifice your pride • Bring back your testimonies
  6. 6. So, what do we do about it?4. Change the world Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?“ And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you.” • Call to Action – We need to be outwardly focused • Apply to every aspect of your life, then work it into the world
  7. 7. Let the Word work in us so that we can work in the world
