God Wants to Use YOU

Ken Harrell

Senior Pastor

When you got saved, that was just the beginning! There’s a very important reason God didn’t take you to Heaven right away… “God Wants to Use YOU” to bring others to Him. And here’s the thing… it doesn’t matter your background, your personality, or your depth of knowledge. God wants to do what only He can do through each one of us to see the others come to know Jesus.

Fill-in Notes

Key Scripture

Mark 1:17; Luke 5:5; John 15:5

Discussion Questions

Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group, or branch off with additional questions as discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.

  1. Read John 15:5 and Galatians 5:22–23. Fruit isn’t only produced when we lead others to Jesus, yet that IS the key reason that we are still here on earth. What fruits of the spirit are you producing well at this time? What fruits could you improve upon? What fruit requires you to “abide in Christ” in order to produce more of it?
  2. Read Mark 1:17 and Matthew 28:19–20. Have you ever led someone to Christ? How did the Lord use you through that process? What can we do to become better “fishers of men” for Jesus? If you have not led anyone to Christ, do you believe that God can use YOU to impact someone’s eternal destiny?
  3. 1 Peter 3:15 states that we should be prepared to give a defense to anyone who asks us for the hope that is in us. What does that preparation look like? What are the key points that you are ready to share with others who may not know Christ? Take some time with your group (whether it’s this week or a following week) to put together a possible plan/script for giving an account for what you believe. This doesn’t have to be followed word-for-word every time but would be a valuable foundation to help.
  4. Read 1 Corinthians 1:26–28. Why do you think that Jesus often chooses “ordinary” people of the world to do His work and to be His followers? What are several biblical examples that you can think of which illustrate this truth? Do these verses mean that God never chooses those in a position of power or importance to do His work? Provide biblical examples to support your answer.
  5. Pastor gave us four guidelines for how to actively become fishers of men. Do you find that you are relying on yourself to become a fisher of men? How does this sermon change your view of how Jesus wants us to go about bringing others to Him?
  6. Take a few minutes to self-reflect on your specific sphere of influence and do the activity that Pastor discussed. Write down your list and share a few items with your Life Group. How can your group help to hold you accountable to these things?

Accountability

  • Where are you reading in the Bible this week and what is God revealing to you?
  • Discuss any struggles you may be going through with your group.
  • How can you be praying for your group this week? How can they be praying for you?
