Presented by Evan Stewart (00:21)
Do you ever feel like you only want to follow Jesus if you know the results of doing so? Sometimes you might think that only a big task with big impact is worth your time and effort. Yet, you never know how God will use your willingness to follow him wherever he leads. Whenever you say yes to God a ripple of influence starts to move through the community.
In the Christmas story, there is mention of a man named Simeon. One day, Simeon knew God was telling him to go to the local temple. Simeon didn’t know why God wanted him to go, but when he arrived he became part of the greatest story in history. Had Simeon cared only for the big jobs, he would have missed out on something bigger.
Listen as Evan teaches to not get stuck on trying to figure out how God will use you, but instead be willing to follow him. As you learn to follow Jesus, God will work out how your obedience through his power will impact the audience.
