What would it mean to you to be a part of something eternal? Something that would influence generations to come? We all for the most part have a desire to be a part of something bigger than us. God gives us that opportunity, but how do we tangibly walk in that impact? God spells it out for us in Mark 6:30-44.
1. God Will Humble You.
God loves to do big things in his Kingdom. Jesus humbled the disciples with the challenge of feeding 5,000 men and their families. God wants to use you, but you have to humble yourself first! Things that we do ourselves in this life have small impact in this life, but things we do with God can have huge impacts in eternity!
Discuss: What is something going on in your life right now that without God you would fail?
2. God Will Send You
Instead of Jesus just filling all the people’s needs with the snap of the finger, Jesus sent out his disciples. God also desires to use you. But how can God use you if you don’t go? We have to walk in humility and obedience to God’s calling in our life so he can use us.
Discuss: When was the last time you stepped out in obedience to God’s calling in your life? What happened?
3. God Will Provide for You.
When we are humbled and we faithfully step out in obedience to God’s calling in our life, how do we know he is going to provide? The Bible shows us that God often provides through what we have and not what we don’t have. Jesus used what they had to provide for the people.
Discuss: What in your life do you have that God can use?
4. God Will Bless You
When we humble ourselves, we step out in faith, and we bring what we have God will bless us in only the way He can. Jesus can meet our deepest desires. He wants to save you and give you a purpose in life that has an eternal impact!
