NO MORE EXCUSES

MATTHEW: 25:14-30

I HAVE ONLY JUST A MINUTE,

ONLY SIXTY SECONDS IN IT.

FORCED UPON ME, CAN’T REFUSE IT,

DIDN’T SEEK IT, DIDN’T CHOOSE IT,

BUT IT’S UP TO ME TO USE IT.

I MUST SUFFER, IF I LOOSE IT,

GIVE ACCOUNT, IF I ABUSE IT.

IT’S ONLY JUST A MINUTE,

BUT ETERNITY IS IN IT . . .

PASSING MINUTE . . . PASSION . . . VALUABLE/IRREPLACEABLE TIME TO PASSING ME BY.

SO I HAVE TO BUST A MOVE, DISCOVER MY GROOVE BEFORE THIS TIME BOMB, CALLED A BIOLOGICAL CLOCK EXPLODES/GO OFF. THIS EARTHLY TABERNACLE HAS NOT BEEN CREATED TO LAST FOREVER.

. . . BIBLE LAND? . . .

JOHN 9:4 “ I MUST WORK THE WORKS . . .”

JOHN 14:19 “A LITTLE WHILE . . . SEE ME NO MORE.”

IN CHAPTER FOUR – RUSSELL SIMMONS – DO YOU, HE SPEAKS ON THE URGENCY OF NO MORE FRONTIN.

HIP-HOP IMPAIRED – NO MORE EXCUSES, NO MORE PUTTING OFF UNITL TOMORROW WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TODAY.

THAT WAS THE DISEASE WITH THE MAN WE FIND IN OUR TEXT.

THE MAN WITH ONE TALENT WHO WE BARELY REMEMBER BECAUSE HE NEVER LIVED UP TO HIS POTENTIAL, POWER, PASSION, PURPOSE, OR POSSIBILITIES (2X).

MEPHIBOSHETH . . . LODEBAR . . .

ARTIE (SHREK) . . .

THE MAN WITH ONE TALENT FAILED TO LIVED UP TO HIS POTENTIAL, POWER, PASSION, PURPOSE, OR POSSIBILITIES.

RECAP STORY . . .

1) HE UNDERVALUED WHAT HE HAD BECAUSE HE WAS CAUGHT UP IN LOOKING AT WHAT SOMEONE ELSE HAD . . .

SHOULDA, WOULDA, COULDA . . . DIDN’T DO ANYTHING.

LESS TIME – FOCUSING – SOMEONE ELSE

MORE TIME – FINE TUNING – SELF

2) HE BECAME STUCK IN STALL

CAR EXAMPLE . . .

R.S – WHILE STALLING IS MUCH EASIER THAN STARTING, STALLING MAKES YOUR LIFE HARDER . . . THE PAIN THAT’S CREATED BY AVOIDING HARD WORK IS ACTUALLY MUCH WORSE THAN ANY PAIN CREATED FROM THE ACTUAL WORK ITSELF . . .

NOW IS THE TIME . . . .

ABE – YEARS OF FAILURE . . . WHAT’S STOPPING YOU

RODNEY DANGERFIELD . . . 42 . . .

JESUS – 30 . . .

START MOVING, START THE PROCESS, START PUSHING, GET AN APPLICATION, COMPLETE THE APPLICATION, REGISTER – CLASS, TAKE – EXAM, START WRITING, FOR GOD SAKE DO SOMETHING NOW . . .

3) HE FAILED TO REALIZE THAT WHAT YOU DO NOT USE, YOU ULTIMATELY LOSE.

V. 18 – HID IT

V. 19 – GIVE ACCOUNT . . .

V. 25 - I HID IT, I SAT ON IT, I DID NOTHING WITH IT . . .

V. 28 – LOST IT
