Michael Phelps is now a household name known by billions of people. With more gold medals than any other Olympic athlete, he is a hero…a legendary figure. Think of all the elements it took to bring Michael Phelps to your living room: cameras, directors, satellite, translators, coaches, travel arrangements, rooms, food, mother, lifelong desire – all joined together in one momentous week to bring you the story of Michael Phelps – without which you would know know of him. In fact, it took all of these people doing all of these jobs in order to successfully bring this new world famous athlete into your living room!

Can we say the same for Jesus Christ? If Jesus is stronger, faster, wiser than Michael Phelps then why aren’t we talking about Him? Jesus is a great hero – changing lives, saving the lost, rescuing the fallen strengthening the weak, and bringing joy through the darkness. He is the top news story of the day every time he changes a life.

Our life together is centered around the common effort of sharing together the good news of Jesus. (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)

Every Christian should be looking for Every Opportunity, using Every Means to share with Every Person.

Every ChristianI make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible… We may not all share the same way, but every person needs to find a way to share the love of Jesus with someone else.

Every Opportunity I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. Not everyone is open, but what opportunities are before you now?

Every Means –  I make myself a slave to everyone … To the Jews I became like a Jew … I became like one under the law … I became like one not having the law …  I became weak, to win the weak. … I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. Think outside of the box … what could you do to call attention to Christ? Spare no effort!

Every PersonI have become all things to all men . Don’t leave anyone out. Young and Old, Free and imprisoned, healthy and sick, rich and poor, sad and happy – the one answer that everyone needs is Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27:
* Embrace the energy: Run in such a way as to get the prize.

* Embrace the preparation: we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

* Embrace the purpose .  Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly.

Every Christian should be looking for Every Opportunity, using Every Means to share with Every Person.
