Unlikely Heroes (Part 6) Going from ordinary to extra Ordinary (Mt.10: 1-4)
Introduction: In this study we are looking at twelve special men chosen by the Lord Jesus Christ to be His disciples and then His Apostles, proclaiming the gospel of Christ and changing the world. We are seeing God can do extra ordinary things with only a few ordinary men.
Conclusion: Remember, God is not limited by man; it is man that tries to limit God. What are you willing to become for God?

When the Unqualified are Qualified Enough
Introduction: In looking at the twelve disciples of Jesus, we have discovered there are three groups of four men that make up the 12 disciples. We have seen those who were in the most intimate group with Jesus, today, we move on to the second group of disciples
Conclusion: God can take any raw material available and transform it into what He can use because He is in the business of making the most out of the unqualified. What could He do with you?

The Men Most Intimate with the Master
Could God want to use me to change the world? Could He use me to preach His gospel, build His kingdom, and bring people to Christ? What kind of people does God need to do these great things? It may surprise you to know God chooses to use very ordinary, unlikely heroes like you and me to do these very extra ordinary things. We’ve already seen what He can do with person like Peter, now let’s meet the rest of group one, The men most intimate with the Master.
Conclusion: After spending time with Jesus, these unlikely heroes could and did do great things for God. So can you!

How does God build a leader?
How does God build a leader? Peter is the key to understanding the answer to this question. But before we just focus on Peter, I want us to take one more look at the twelve.
Conclusion: So how does God build a leader? He makes the right choice. Then He takes someone with the right raw materials, puts him/her through the right experiences, gives them the right lessons to learn, and He comes out with an unlikely hero and leader like Peter. And oh what a leader Peter turned out to be! His leadership is seen throughout the first 12 chapters of Acts.
Could you be the kind of leader God is looking to develop and build up?

Realizing God Can Use You
Have you ever wondered, “What could God ever want with someone like me?” I believe we have all asked that question a time or two in our lives. That is why it is important for us to see how Jesus called, converted, and commissioned the disciples into Apostles, so we can take courage ourselves, in what God wants to do with us.
Conclusion: These men will be honored for all of eternity – not for what they were, but for what they were willing to become!
Unlikely Heroes Part 1 Going from ordinary to extraordinary (Mt. 10:1-4)
What was Jesus greatest miracle?
While Jesus did many great miracles, Jesus greatest miracle was when He called, converted and commissioned 12 common ordinary men to Himself and through His power in them turned the world upside down! While Jesus values every human life, He invested more in a few. (Luke 6:12, 13 Mt 10:1-4) tells us Jesus prayed all night and then called, converted and commissioned certain men. Over the next several weeks I want us to take a closer look at these twelve and what happened in between (v. 1 and v.2) that took these ordinary men and changed them into unlikely heroes and extraordinary men. “If you are looking for purpose in your life and significance; you’re going to find compelling… inspiration through the lives of these men.”
Conclusion: Jesus greatest miracle was when He called, converted and commissioned 12 common ordinary men to Himself and transformed them into extraordinary men, unlikely heroes He used to turn the world upside down – and He wants to do it again with you and me!
