Fully Alive
January 30, 2022

One Step

by Johnson Bowie
As followers of Jesus, every single one of us is called to ministry. God’s mission for our lives is that we would be disciples who make disciples. When we live with this purpose in mind, using all we have for God’s glory, we come fully alive! All that Jesus asks of us is to walk with Him—that wherever we are on our journey, we focus on taking one step forward. He promises to stay by our side along the way!
Sermon Notes

“The Glory of God is man fully alive!” – St. Irenaeus

Matthew 4:19 ESV
He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Philippians 3:12-14 NLT
I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

The Power of Small Steps

1) SMALL STEPS reveal the work we’re CALLED to do.

Psalm 37:23 NIV
The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him.


5 Levels of Life

  1. Doing what you hate
  2. Doing what you do
  3. Doing what you love
  4. Doing what God loves
  5. Doing what God loves to do that you love too

The Power of Small Steps

2) When we take SMALL STEPS together, it turns EXPONENTIAL.

Deuteronomy 32:30 NIV
How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the Lord had given them up?

Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
