BALANCING ACT

INTRO: A GREAT COMMITMENT

1: WHAT IS A COMMITMENT?

A) IS IT SOMETHING YOU PLAN TO SET ASIDE TIME FOR

B) EVENTS OR PLACES WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE

C) JURY DUTY OR A REGULAR JOB

POINT: WE ALL HAVE COMMITMENTS WE HONOR ON A DAILY WEEKLY MONTHLY OR YEARLY BASIS. COMMITMENT IS NOT A NEW THING TO ANY OF US, GOD CALLS FOR A COMMITMENT AS WELL.

2: GREAT COMMANDMENT

A) MATT 22:37-40

B) LOVE GOD WITH EVERYTHING

C) HEART MIND BODY SOUL

D) THAT TAKES A GREAT COMMITMENT

POINT: IF YOU TRULY LOVE SOMEONE YOU DON’T NECESSARILY WANT TO LET THEM DOWN. WHY SHOULD GOD BE ANY DIFFERENT? HE COMMANDS US TO LOVE HIM WITH ALL WE HAVE NOT JUST GIVE HIM WHAT’S LEFT OVER.

3: GREAT COMMISSION

A) GO YE THEREFORE

B) THIS IS WHAT GOD EXPECTS OF THOSE WHO SAY THEY LOVE HIM

C) TEACH AND BAPTIZE IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

POINT: A GREAT COMMITMENT TO THE GREAT COMMANDMENT AND GREAT COMMISSION WILL MAKE US GREAT CHRISTIANS. ( RICK WARREN PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE )

BODY: BALANCING ACT

1: WALKING WISELY

A) EPH 5:15

B) THERE ARE WAYS TO DO THIS

C) 2 PETER SAYS TO BEWARE AS WELL

D) WISELY AND WITH A SENSE OF AWARENESS

POINT: WITH ALL THE THINGS WE JUGGLE AS PEOPLE IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES IT CAN BE REALLY EASY TO LOSE SENSE OF GOD AND THE THINGS OF GOD. MANY TIMES WE MAKE DECISIONS AND COMMITMENTS WITHOUT EVER THINKING THEM THROUGH. WALK WISELY

2: WARREN’S FIVE PURPOSES FOR BALANCE

A) WORSHIP

B) MINISTRY

C) EVANGELLISM

D) FELLOWSHIP

E) DISCIPLESHIP

POINT: EACH OF THESE AREAS ARE APPLICABLE TO THE GREAT COMMANDMENT AND GREAT COMMISSION. ALL FIVE WILL HELP US LIVE A LIFE THAT HAS BALANCE AND IS WORKING IN EVERY AREA THAT GOD CALLS US TO BE WORKING.

CLOSING: FIVE PURPOSES BREAKDOWN

1: WORSHIP: LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WORSHIP IS THE METHOD IN WHICH WE GIVE BACK TO GOD, WE SHOW GOD HOW MUCH LOVE WE HAVE FOR HIM IN HOW FAITHFUL WE ARE TO HIM IN OUR DAILY WORSHIP.

2: MINISTRY: LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOUR SELF, WE SERVE GOD BY SERVING OTHERS FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST, NO MATTER THE COLOR CREED OR BACKGROUND WORKING FOR OTHERS TO HELP THEM SEE THE LOVE OF CHRIST THROUGH US.

3: EVANGELISM: GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES, THIS IS PART OF OUR MISSION TO GO OUT AND GET ‘EM, WE CAN’T WAIT FOR THEM TO COME TO US WE HAVE TO GO AND LET THEM KNOW WE WANT THEM AND GOD WANTS THEM.

4: FELLOWSHIP: BAPTIZE THEM, HAVING AN IDENTITY WITH ONE ANOTHER AND KNOWING AN GROWING TOGETHER BY LEARNING AND SHARING TIME AND MOMENTS WITH ONE ANOTHER.

5: DISCIPLESHIP: TEACH THEM ALL THINGS, WE ALL GROW IN MATURITY THROUGH WHAT WE LEARN IN OUR EXPERIENECES AND ALSO IN OUR BIBLE STUDY AND GROUP LEARNING SESSIONS.

CONCLUSION: A BALANCED LIFE IS NOT ACHEIVEABLE UNLESS WE SEEK TO ACHIEVE IT THROUGH CHRIST JESUS AND WHAT HE ASKS OF US AS HIS FOLLOWERS.
