Working for it!
I was really taking this last week to watch, read, and digest what is going on through out the country in several states. I have had the privilege to talk to some of these leaders of the churches, I have read some of their thoughts about what is going on, and I have been reading the books that they put out. It is really exciting how God is growing and using these men to do amazing things in this world.
What unfortunately most people forget about what God is doing with these churches is that these leaders are also working hard at what they do. They are men and women that have followed the call of God and taken steps of faith to follow the call and do the things that were needed to build a church. To many people though are looking for the short cut. To many people thought think that oh that is happening in their church because of the building or the music. The thing is that everything had to start somewhere. I believe that just like Nehemiah he received the call followed Christ but he got to work. He got his hands dirty – he got sweaty – he got in the mix of building a wall.
Roger Staubach “”Spectacular achievements come from unspectacular preparation”
Many of us have gotten to the point where we have become so comfortable that we don’t see the need to WORK. Jesus was a carpenter, you can’t tell me He did not know about work. Think about the walk that Jesus made to where they hung him on the cross on the hill. Work! Why is it that we have put everything into a processes, into a book, into an idea. I believe that many people today have forgotten the principle of HARD WORK. Thank you to those leaders that are making the decisions and changes that you are to the church at large. Thank you for showing what God will do through a man that seeks after Him but also is not afraid of hard work. I pray that we will not forget that with people around us dying and going to Hell that it is not the time to sit back and not get to work.
Tell me how you have seen the work that you have put in comeback with God sized spectacular achievement?
