Gospel and the Holy Spirit

Page 1

Jim Cymbala is the Pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn, New York. In this session from the 2013 SEND Conference, Jim challenges believers not to depend on their own talents and skills to penetrate lostness in North America, but instead to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit.

As you watch this session, take notes and write down thoughts about how this session can impact your role. 

Read Acts 13:1–12. Notice the "band of brothers" exemplifying the unifying influence of Christianity. How does this influence how you approach ministry? Who do you meet regularly with and how does working with people with different backgrounds help you accomplish the work God has called you to do?

Jim encouraged us to see people the way God sees them and feel for them the way that God feels. How does this differ from the way you have approached other believers who have a different doctrine from you? What can you do today to change how you love those who oppose you?

Jim said most American Christians are content with just coming to church once a week rather than truly being laborers in the harvest. Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not? What can you do to help those in your church see themselves unified, as laborers for God?

God will open doors for us if we seek to do His will. Jim said, "There's stuff we can do, and then there's stuff God can do." Let's allow God to use us exactly as we are, and say the words Jim challenged us to say, "God, here I am. You take it from here."
