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.

“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.” William Carey
