Filling up the calendar

Today I have been calling churches to share our burden and ministry with the pastor and possible the church. I am humbled by this process. I think to myself, what do I have to say that is so important this church should have me come and tell them about? Why would they listen to me? Its then that I realize that its not what I have to say that they need to hear. Its not my burden or my ministry, its God’s. I am not calling a pastor to beg foe money so I don’t have to have a job. I have a mission from the King. I know a place, in our country, that is not hearing the gospel. Five hundred thousand people with very little light of the gospel. Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sentme, even so send I you. John 20:21. We have our orders, lets go!

Glass Half Full or Half Empty?

1 Corinthians 16:9 “For a greatdoor and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.”

 

What kind of Christian are we? Do dwell on the first part of the verse(1 Cor 16:9) or the second? Do we run around thinking of every hypothetical thing that can go wrong? Do we think about how much it will cost, or how much time in our life it will take up? Do we have the “and there are many advisories.” outlook on the church and the work of God?

We need to meditate on the open doors. The Bible calls it “a great door”. Will we run thru it or will we just think of the mean dog out side of the door.

What door do you need to go thru today? What “great door” is before you? What ministry or opportunity do you have? What influence for right can you have? What door is before you?

Make no mistake, the advisory is real. The advisory will be there waiting on you. Remember the door is “great” not the advisory. Be bold for God.
