Cause and Effect Week - 3

Speaker: Tyler Long

Praying for an Unbeliever & Serving at Church

“So it is with faith: if it is alone and includes no actions, then it is dead. But someone will say, “one person has faith, another has actions.” My answer is, “show me how anyone can have faith without actions. I will show you my faith by my actions.” So then, as the body without the spirit is dead, also faith without actions is dead.” James 2:17-18;26 GNT

CONFESSING SINS REGULARLY: REPENTANCE

READING & STUDYING THE BIBLE

PRAYING FOR AN UNBELIEVER

  1. GOD’S HEART

“This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:3 NLT

  1. GOD’S SACRIFICE

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.” Luke 19:10 NLT

  1. GOD’S POWER

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world…” Ephesians

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.” Ephesians

“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!” Matthew 5:44 NLT.

PRAY THAT THEY WILL KNOW GOD

And this is the way to have eternal life – to know you, the only true God….” John 17:3 NLT

PRAY AGAINST HARDENED OR STUBBORN HEARTS

PRAY FOR GOD’S SPIRIT TO FILL THEM

“I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed, not self-willed. I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands.” Ezekiel 36

PRAY AGAINST THE INFLUENCES OF THE WORLD

“Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”

PRAY FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO MINISTER TO THEM

PRAY AGAINST THE SIN IN THEIR LIFE

THERE IS POWER IN YOUR PRAYERS

Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew

SERVING AT CHURCH

MINISTRY IS THE PATHWAY TO MATURITY

“..He has given each one of us a special gift through the generosity of Christ. Now these gifts are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.” Ephesians 4:7;11-15 NLT

God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 4:10-11 NLT
