Be Earthly Relevant And Heavenly Focused

Be Earthly Relevant And Heavenly Focused

 

OPENING PRAYER: Father, please make me relevant on earth and at the same time Heavenly focused.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask members what they understood from the last topic.

MEMORY VERSE: “And every man that striveth for mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.” – 1 Corinthians 9:25

BIBLE TEXT: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (KJV)

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

 

LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Heaven is in dire need of a generation that is balanced. God is in search of people; He will not be ashamed to be called His own Hebrew 11:6. Now, is the time for a mind shift to identify God’s plan and purpose and God’s expectation from those He calls His own 3 John 1:2, Matthew 6:33.

In today’s Bible text, God we can see wants us to know and live His plan, purpose and Will to the extent of being intentional about it. As we continue in today’s study, we will see why we need to run with a vision and never lose focus. God wants to be proud of you, don’t just exist without relevance, you are the salt of the Earth, ye are gods.
