Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Sermon Series: Everyday Christians

Does God use everyday Christians or only the ones who have great speaking, organizational, or fundraising skills? God used everyday folks in Scripture who we see as great because God called them and equipped them. God intends to accomplish His purposes in and through His people! As we read Deuteronomy 6:4-9, we see God calling His people to bring Him into every area of life. God desires to use every thought, word, and deed in every moment of every day for His glory and our good. The ordinary Christian doing ordinary, everyday stuff can have extraordinary impact if God is in it!

“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished, and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13

Peter and John were ordinary people with an extraordinary call. We are all called by God and equipped by God to answer the call. As “Everyday Christians” we are charged with impacting those around us by ensuring that our relationship with Jesus is evident in our daily lives and interactions. There is nothing special about us, but there is certainly something special about our Savior and His Holy Spirit Who indwells us! God accomplishes His will in and through us as we go along in the day to day, moment by moment, seemingly unimportant routines of life. He is the one doing the work and we can be a part of that work if we know who we are.

Do you believe what God’s Word says about Who God is? Do you believe what God’s Word says about who you are? We must know God and believe what God says about Himself in order to know who we are and why we’re here. With our identity secure in Christ, we are ready to be everyday Christians!
