God Sets Apart & Sends
– according to his criteria, not mine (1 Sam. 17:6)
– in the context of relationship with him
– in the context of community
We Respond
– part of a bigger story, blessed to be a blessing (Gen. 12:1-4)
– compelled by love and gratitude (2 Cor. 5:14-15)
– hearts that have already said “yes” to God, no matter what he asks
God Astonishes
– Jesus had turned the world upside down – now the Holy Spirit does the same through his followers (Acts 17:6)
– Bar-Jesus’ deception is reversed
– Saul is changed, too – new name, walking in his calling to preach to the Gentiles (Acts 9:15, Acts 13:47)
Big Idea: God sets us apart and sends us, we say “yes,” and God does astonishing things.
