Wired to Inspire – Part 2.1 (Shaun Blakeney speaking)

“God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere;but they all originate in
God’s Spirit.God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere;but
they all originate in God’s Spirit.God’s various expressions of power are
in action everywhere;but God Himself is behind it all.Each person is
given something to do that shows who God is:Everyone gets in on it,
everyone benefits.”1 Cor 12:5-7 (Msg)

1.What Inspiration Is Not: (Shaun Blakeney)

* SELF-SERVING

Shaun telling stories about inspiration. Doing the right thing is inspiring.

Shaun just called his wife Teresa “Jesus Jr.”. He was reference her desire to shoot another parent at laser tag.

Shaun has been a Youth Pastor for 16 years. Shaun is giving credit to his old youth pastor, “Richard”. Richard was inspirational in Shaun’s life in being a youth pastor

2.What Inspiration Is: (Shaun Blakeney)
* INFLUENCE
* POWER – a respect thing.

Shaun talking about Paul from the New Testament. He inspired everyone he was around.

I want to be an influencer.

3.Authentic inspiration requires ACTION.

“Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has
it? For instance,you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and
half-starved and say,”Good morning,friend! Be clothed in Christ!
Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so
much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn’t it
obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?”
James 2:15-17 (Msg)

“…You are a chosen people.You are a kingdom of priests,God’s holy
nation,His very own possession.This is so you can show others the
goodness of God,for He called you out of the darkness into His
wonderful light.”1 Pet 2:9 (NLT)

“…You are a chosen people.You are a kingdom of priests,God’s holy
nation,His very own possession.This is so you can show others the
goodness of God,for He called you out of the darkness into His
“Give as freely as you have received!”Matt 10:8 (NLT)
