In Then Through

In Then Through

Sermon notes

Prayer lap 2: https://prayer.global/prayer_app/custom/ff2cd5

What God does in me God will do through me.

Jesus prioritized the work of his father in Him so the Spirit could work through Him.

Mark 1

By prioritizing prayer with the Father, Jesus became empowered and focused.

How would you know what God wants to do through you, if you do not first invite God to work in you?

John 15

If anyone could skip that part where God the father does a work in us and go straight to fruit it would be Jesus. But Jesus never skipped that part.

Be patient with God’s process but be urgent about getting in the process

Two workers are listed in Philippians 2:12-13

  1. One worker is YOU
  2. The other worker is The Holy Spirit

The Christian life is not so much a series of ups and downs; it is rather a process of “ins and outs.” God works in; we work out.

God is more interested in the workman than the work. God wants to work in you before he will work through you. Because if the workman is who he/she ought to be, then the work will be what it ought to be.

Maybe the best way to be a person of impact is not to say, “God, what do You want to do through me?” but instead, “God, what do You want to do in me?”


What God wants to do in you and eventually through you is going to come out of something that has happened to you.
