Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

That’s a game changer! A breath of fresh air no matter what you do for a living.

We had 5 FNGs last week. That’s really impressive. Let’s continue to grow. I also challenge you to check in on the regulars we haven’t seen out here in a while.

Hello Dolly to finish up.
What is holding you back…..

Several things may come to mind.

  • How you address your work; doing all of your work, striving for the extra, going back to school.
  • How you handle your home life; spending time with your kids and not watching tv or taking the easy way out at times.
  • How you need to avoid/move one/let go of a bad habit or sin; what relationship, website activity, etc.
  • Why don’t you volunteer in your church; sing, bring food, help with children’s ministry.

Remember that it’s much more difficult to do the thing you need to do.  We spend a lot of our times in the 80% of activities that we’re good at based on 20% of effort.  The last 20% is where we need to focus; It may take all 80% of our effort to get there but that’s where the ‘fruit’ is.

Isaiah 41:10 (NIV) So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Matt 11:24 “When the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and not finding any, it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ 25 And when it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. 26 Then it goes and takes along seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

As we overcome the struggles and temptations in our life, we must fill in the void the leave. We should replace and not just displace because a bad habit will come back with a vengeance when we leave an opening. Take the time, money and thought you once gave to your indulgences and now use it to grow physically, financially and spiritually. Start saying yes to your kids when they ask to do something with you, be the first the volunteer at church, take a coworker out to lunch or invite them over for dinner. Stop being men who DON’T do this or that and start being men who DO. When familiar sin comes calling, you can turn on the neon sign that says – NO VACANCY!

What does it take to build a better, closer relationship? Time spent together. This works for our families (wife, kids, etc.), as well as with God. So, how do we spend time building that relationship? Same answer…spend time together. God has given us His word to study and learn and spend time in. God gave us the avenue of prayer to develop that relationship too. If we spend time reading God’s word and praying, we spend time with God. Reading the Bible gives us a close look at God’s relationship with mankind. We can’t know God’s will without spending time in His word. Prayer gives us the opportunity to open our heart to God even though He already knows what is on our heart. Prayer draws us closer to Him.

Think about the time and effort spent to grow closer to your spouse while you were dating. That is the level of effort we should apply to developing our relationship with God.
