: Incarnational Ministry Part 4

Introduction: We are considering together the concept of Incarnational Ministry as we look at Jesus instructions to His followers in Luke 10. Jesus being fully God took on flesh and became a human as well so that He could become our Savior and reveal Himself to us in a way we could begin to understand. What Jesus did in becoming a man is called incarnation. He took on our likeness to reach us. NOW, we are His Body as His Holy Spirit indwells us. NOW, Jesus continues His incarnational ministry through us. Therefore, as we allow the Holy Spirit to work through our lives to touch the lives of others in the world the ministry of Jesus Christ continues. Our desire is to continue consider the principles of Incarnation Ministry. We desire to allow the Holy Spirit to teach us, burden us, and call us in a fresh new way to be Jesus to our community and to our world. Thus far we have encountered the first 5 principles -Strategy, Vision, Prayer, Going and warfare. Today we look at principle # 6, Dependence.

Empty Vessels

Introduction: Elisha has just returned from the adventure with the 3 kings and the miracle of God’s provision of water in the desert – the valley of ditches. Now Elisha is confronted by a widow on one of the sons of the prophets. This group called “sons of the prophets” was made up of men who were called to serve the prophet and to learn from the prophet as they traveled together. Our desire today is to review the story of this miracle of empty vessels and to make application from the story to our personal walks of faith as well as our journey of faith together as the Fairview Family.

Incarnational Ministry

Introduction: In John 1:1 God’s Word tells us; “In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” In John 1:14 God’s Word says; “the Word became flesh and dwelt (tabernacle) among us.” Thus God took on flesh-became a human so that He could become our Savior and reveal Himself to us in a way we could begin to understand. What Jesus did in becoming a man is called incarnation. He took on our likeness to reach us. NOW, we are His Body as His Holy Spirit indwells (tabernacles within) us. Now Jesus continues His incarnational ministry through us. Therefore, as we allow the Holy Spirit to work through our lives to touch the lives of others in the world the ministry of Jesus Christ continues. In this passage in Luke 10 Jesus sends out 70 other disciples (NIV says 72) (In Chapter 9 He sent out His 12 with similar instructions) in His Name to do ministry. From His instructions to these 70 and their experiences we can see 12 principles of Incarnational ministry that Jesus would desire of us today as His Body.
