“On Fire” Lesson #5

                               “ Using your gifts to reach the world! “

Intro: What is something that you are real good at doing?


  1. Jer 20:9, Jer 1:5  It is Gods will that when we become Christians that we become strong in God, that we remain on-fire for God, and that we fulfill Gods call on our lives.
    1. Galatians 5:7-8 However, the devil will throw many things at us to try and pull us away from God, and from accomplishing His will here in this world.
      1. Rom 12:6 God has given each one of us specific talents and abilities and we are called to use our gifts to win as many people to Jesus as possible!
      2. Prov 11:30 Whatever your specific talent or gifting is, God is calling you to use it to evangelize and to win others to Jesus, our purpose is to reach the world!
    2. Jer 29:11-13  God has chosen each of us and placed us in a specific place at the exact time that he wants and has given us the abilities that we will need to fulfill his purposes.
  2. Matt 5:14-30, Luke 19:12-28 Some people use their talents and gifts to win others to Christ while others are spiritually lazy, afraid, make excuses, and do nothing with the talents God has given them.
    1. 1 Cor 12:15-19  Each one of us has different talents and abilities, but all of us are called to use the abilities that we have to win as many people to Jesus as we can!
      1. 1 Cor 12:8-11 There are also nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, and God equips us with everyone of the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that we can win people to Jesus!
      2. James 4:17 Each of us has a choice to make, we can choose to give into fear, remain silent, make excuses, and do nothing with the gifts God has given us.
    2. 2 Cor 5:20, Jude 1:23 Or we can choose to step out in obedience, overcome all that is in our way, get rid of our fear and excuses and and win as may people to Jesus as we possibly can with the talents God has given us. Our purpose is to #Reachtheworld!


  1. What do you believe are some of the talents or spiritual gifts that God has given you personally?
  2. Do you feel that you are actively using the gifts and talents God has given you to evangelize those  around you and win others to Christ? If so, in what ways?
  3. What are some of the most common excuses some youth and young adults give for being spiritually lazy and not using their gifts to win others to Christ?
  4. If you are not yet actively using your talents and abilities to win others to Christ, are you now ready to overcome all excuses and step out in your gifts to reach the world?

End: Pray for those who want  to overcome all fears and excuses and step out in their gifts to reach the world. Then pray for anyone who needs to accept Jesus as their Savior or rededicate their lives to Christ, then take requests.
