Summary: We have to have an I CAN DO ATTITUDE when it comes to Christian Life in General, touching Jesus, touching one another, touching & winning souls
I like a person with an “I CAN DO ATTITUDE!” Even when you know they “CAN’T DO IT” you still gotta love somebody with an “I CAN DO ATTITUDE!” “I CAN DO ATTITUDES” get things done even when it looks like it can’t get done. “I CAN DO ATTITUDES” find a way to do things when others give up or quit! “I CAN DO ATTITUDES” look not at the moment but at the “NEXT MOMENT!”
Throughout all scripture we read where we see people with “I CAN DO ATTITUDES!” who got things done! They were always to a person just regular people whom God called out of the “MOMENT” into a
“SUPERNATURAL MOMENT!” A “SUPERNATURAL MOMENT!” that changed their lives, lives of those around them, changed the world and even the FUTURE!
“Well, come on now! That was then! This is now!” Absolutely! You’re right! But what makes “THEN & NOW” Unique! YOU GUESSED IT! THE SAME GOD! THE SAME PURPOSE! THE SAME REASON! THE SAME OUTCOME! THE SAME RESULTS! SEE HOW SMART YOU ARE?!?!
YOU + GOD = THE SAME RESULTS FOUND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE! But understand one thing! YOU GOTTA HAVE AN “I CAN DO ATTITUDE!”
We’ve started an outreach ministry here, Effectove Evangelism Training with Teddy Levron. here in the church! I’ve been excited with the turn out on Wednesday evenings. I’ve been most excited about the people who’ve come out for these training sessions as I’ve watched them getting excited about what God is GOING TO DO HERE!
YOU SEE! I’VE SEEN A “I CAN DO ATTITUDE!” SWELLING UP WITHIN THEM! I’VE GOT ONE OF THEM CALLING ME ASKING ME “WHAT CAN I DO AROUND THE CHURCH!”
FOLK, WHEN PASTORS DREAM,
THAT IS WHAT THEY DREAM ABOUT!
There’s an excitement about being about the Father’s Business that is contagious and I hope you’re sitting next to an “INFECTED PERSON!” I WANT EACH OF YOU TO “GET INFECTED” WITH “GOD’S CAN DO SPIRIT & ATTITUDE” THE WAY THOSE ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS ARE!
WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT “YOU CAN DO” THEN YOU BECOME A “CAN DOER!”
James 1:22 tells us...
“But be DOERS of the Word and not hearers only...”
I know! Some of you are sitting out there saying, “I KNOW THAT ALREADY!” Understand what the passage I just read is saying to “ALL OF US!”
Listen to what James says in this passage! You all know the first part of the passage but listen to the last part of the passage, which seems to be the most important part for the church! For there are plenty who know the word but aren’t the “DOERS” they should be!
James 1:22 tells us...
“But be DOERS of the Word and not hearers only deceiving yourselves.”
Folk, if we are hearers only of the word sitting with pompous attitudes about the word and “DOING NOTHING” then we are DECEIVERS OF THE WORST KIND! “SELF DECEIVERS!” THOSE ARE THE KIND THAT KEEP THE KINGDOM FROM MOVING FORWARD! THEY KEEP THE KINGDOM FROM ACCOMPLISHING THROUGH THE LOCAL CHURCH THE WAY THE LOCAL CHURCH IS SUPPOSED, TO NOT TO MENTION THE INDIVIDUAL!
FOLK, WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE AN “I CAN DO ATTITUDE!” THAT KEEPS US MOVING FORWARD, MOVING ONWARD, ACTING LIKE THE SONG SAYS...
