Philippians 2:12-13

God has made me for a purpose.  We are responsible for yielding to God’s purpose by humbling ourselves before God and recognizing his plan and strength working in our lives.

Examples:

  • Paul

Acts 26:15-23 – His purpose was to spread the gospel to both Jews and Gentiles.  God gave him the strength to fulfill his purpose.

Gal. 1:1, 15 God is certain of what our calling is.

  • Peter

Acts 3:1-26 – Peter and John healed a lame man in the name of Jesus.  Jesus gave them the strength and they gave the glory to God.  The people saw the healing and Peter used this as an opportunity to talk about Jesus. 

  • Us

1 Cor. 12:6 God is working in us today.

2 Cor. 3:5-6 God gives us what it takes to be able to meet challenges 

Vessels for Honor

  • 2 Tim. 2:20-22

We cleanse ourselves through giving ourselves to God and following his word.

  • Col. 1:28-29

God’s power is at work in us to make us complete for his purposes.

  • Heb. 13:20-21

God equips us to do the work we are called to do.
