Passage: Matthew 13:44-46
6 ways for people to buy into our vision:
1. Sell out to your STANDARD.
-Sometimes to attract people we lower our standards.
-What you attract them to is what you keep them with.
-Stick to the excellence God has called you to.
-Don’t label lazy leadership as Grace.
-Don’t ask God to bless basic.
-Tell others: You’re not bringing me down I’m taking you up.
-It’s not that I’m not patient, it’s that I’m not playing.
-Your standard is your protection.
2. Sell out to your STRATEGY.
-How stupid must have it felt to borrow jars while in debt.
-You want me to do what? Silly stuff.
-We weren’t strategic, we were obedient.
-Stupid until it was successful.
-There’s a difference between miracle and mechanics.
-If it would have worked the first time you wouldn’t have appreciated it.
-God is asking us if we are willing to do it again.
-The standard becomes the cycle.
3. Sell out to your STRENGTH.
-Can you celebrate your weaknesses?
-Don’t step out of position and miss your purpose.
-I’m good with what I don’t have.
-Ask people around you what strengths do you see in me?
-Greatest gift you can give a a compliment.
4. Sell out to SPHERE.
-What is the field God has called you to?
-Don’t run to different fields, the treasure is in you.
-I don’t always have control but I do have a choice.
-God honors you when you honor others.
5. Sell out to your SEASON.
-Don’t say one day when…
-You plow, God promotes.
-Process this season right or you will not have what you need for the next.
-You don’t need more authority but more responsibility.
-Grow what you have been given.
-God will give you the grace you need for your season.
-Study without a microphone.
-This is the crushing season.
6. Sell out to your SACRIFICE.
- We are not doing a favor by serving Him.
- Lady poured out oil on Jesus feet; she called it worship others called it a waste.
