Humbly Significant

Romans 10:8-18 KJV
[8] But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [9] That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. [10] For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. [11] For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. [12] For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. [13] For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. [14] How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? [15] And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! [16] But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? [17] So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. [18] But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Know your why

Is there not a cause?

1 Samuel 17:50

The slingshot defeated the sword
The boy killed the giant
The shepherd overcame the warrior
The mighty was no match for the dedicated
The stone was more than enough for the armor

The cause was not David alone.
The cause was greater than himself.
The enemy is in BIG trouble when someone is willing to heed the call for the sake of others.

Some of the most significant or important people in your life aren’t famous…they aren’t globally impacting people. They are ordinary, everyday faithful folks.

YOU are the most significant to someone…
David was carrying lunch to his brothers… he had more than lunch
1. He had a proven method of warfare.
2. He had a cause…a WHY…

Acts 1:8 KJV
[8] But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

God is on your side…

Acts 26:15-18 KJV
[15] And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. [16] But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; [17] Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, [18] To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

  1. Rise
  2. Stand upon thy feet
  3. Minister and witness
    • Things seen
    • Things which will appear
  4. Deliverance from them I send you to
  5. To open their eyes
  6. To turn them from darkness to light
  7. To turn from the power of Satan unto God
  8. That they may receive forgiveness of sins
  9. That they may receive inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

2 Timothy 2:1-7 NKJV
[1] You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. [2] And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. [3] You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. [4] No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. [5] And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. [6] The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops. [7] Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.
