What is your worst fear ever? Sweat Bullets / Sick / Weak Knees
#1 Fear reported in America is Public Speaking
How would you feel God tapped you on the shoulder & asked you to do that? Every Week?
I remember standing in front of my first public speaking class. Fear pretty much describes how I what I was feeling.Now – Fast Forward 20 Year later – “Good Morning everybody – welcome to PCC”
Honestly, I never sought this job. Being a Lead Pastor was Way off my radar! 9 months before I was called to lead this church, a friend asked, “So when do you think - Senior Pastor” “HA – Never!! Why would I want that?”
Only one Major Reason: God tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to Step Up.
Now, there are two secondary reasons: #1 – I love this church (Family)
#2 I Believe in God’s Vision PCC
But LEAD this church? God – You’ve got the wrong Guy!!
2 ½ years later, I KNOW - Exactly Where God wants me and I’mDoing Exactly what I was created to DO!!
I’m Working out of my Giftedness and My life has meaning / Purpose
Week 3: Google: What are you searching for? Search to Answers Life’s - Basic Questions.
Week 1: Who am I doing LIFE With?
Last Week: Where do I find The Answers to Life?
This Week: A Place to Plug & Play / Finding a Place where Life has Significance
Have you EVER felt your life was meant for something MORE? Something Bigger?
Search for Significance - I think one of the most intense! People want to know, "Does my life MATTER?"
"Does my life have Purpose?" and "Is there a place for me to PLUG & PLAY?"
Let me say – I DON’T Believe that Significance Comes from only doing CHURCH Work But it does Come from Doing KINGDOM WORK / Not everyone is called to be a Pastor. But EVERYONE IS called to be SOMETHING!! Doctors / School Teachers / Truck Drivers
POINT: Whatever you do – Do it FOR GOD! Do it with the Kingdom of God in MIND
BE THE BEST!! God Deserves It. BUT – be willing to Step out – Comfort Zone
A Guy in the Bible that stepping out of His Comfort Zone – Joshua /
After the death of Moses . . . the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: "Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them--to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. - [vs. 5] No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:1-9 (NIV)
Why do you think God told Josh to “BE Strong & Courageous” so many time?
“terrified” “discouraged” Joshua was being asked to Do something – Way outside Comfort
#1 To Plug & PLay, I’ve got To Step Out of My Comfort Zone. . .TO SEE GOD MOVE
Those of you that were here 2½ yrs ago –Might Remember 1st message was from this Passage.
I COULD IDENTITY WITH JOSHUA!! Have you EVER Felt OVER your Head?
God saying: Significance found – beyond YOURSELF!! Never found – being SAFE
The PLACE God wants YOU to Plug N Play ALWAYS means First – STEPPING OUT!
Let’s look at the story of Joshua:
It was time for Joshua to lead the Israelites across the Jordan River – into the land that God had promised Abraham, then Moses, and now Joshua.
"When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests, who are Levites, carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it.  Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before. . ." Joshua 3:3-4 (NIV)
