Part 5 of "Knowing and Doing the Will of God" A Series on Experiencing God Reality # 3 God invites you to become involved with Him in His work Review reality – The two key words of reality #3 are INVITES and INVOLVED. I. God’s invitation – it is CLEAR and SIMPLE, John 3:16 a. What we need to understand today is that it is the God who "SO LOVES" that "HE SENT." b. God invites in the unique way we need to hear it. c. He calls the WHOSOEVER. II. Our involvement – Knowing, Loving, Worshiping – KNOWING leads to LOVING, leads to WORSHIPING. a. Knowing – God’s invitation leads us to first Know God. i. We have to OWN our FAITH. Not spectator/consumer but owner OF FAITH 1. Bob Goff quote “Something happens when you feel ownership. You no longer act like a spectator or consumer, because you’re an owner!” ii. This is owning our faith – not to be confused with owning our church b. Loving – KNOWING has to lead to LOVING - John 14:21& I Corinthians 13:13 i. God’s invitation leads us completely to Him in Love, just like he led Moses to lead the Israelites, in Deut 32: 46-47 c. Worship - Love leads to worship – or our expression of Love for God. i. When we own our faith and let the Love of God come through us we then must either be a worshiper or complainer – there is no in between. ii. Worshipers – COMPLAINERS - Own their faith - own the church - Share love - share discouragement - Act on their love - sit on the sidelines and complain - Break bread together - find reasons for division - Do strange things for Christ - play it safe
