• There are more and more people who are using the services of what is called a “Life Coach.”

• With roots in executive coaching, which itself drew on techniques developed in management consulting and leadership training, life coaching also draws from a wide variety of disciplines, including sociology, psychology, career counseling, mentoring, and numerous other types of counseling.

• The coach applies mentoring, values assessment, behaviour modification, behaviour modeling, goal-setting, and other techniques in assisting clients. Coaches are to be distinguished from counselors, whether counselors in psychotherapy or other careers. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_coaching)

• People like Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankee’s uses the services of a life coach to help him make good decisions and to help reach personal goals.

• People are looking for answers in life; they are looking for the motivation to carry on with life.

• I believe that many people want to life what they consider a successful life.

• People are looking to books. Life coaches, various religions, among other things for the answers.

• Today I want to begin a 5 part mini-series entitled “Five Things To know.”

• As Christians, there are many things we need to know about our life in Christ. I want to focus in on five things that were shared with me a long time ago as I started out wanting to become a minister.

• The next five weeks will deal with scriptures that are “life scriptures”. These are passages that can have a profound affect on our lives if we will memorize them and follow them.

• SLIDE #1

• The first of the 5 things we need to know is that we have a life coach.

• As we go through these 5 things we need to know, I want to encourage you to take the time to memorize the main text each week.

• These passages will be a blessing to you when you struggle through some of the challenges that life has to offer to you.

• Christians do not have to search all over the place looking for guidance; we have the guidance we need to succeed in life from our God.

• Today as we look at Proverbs 3:5-6, we will see that God makes a promise, but that promise has three conditions for us to maintain.

• SLIDE #2

SERMON

We must:

I. GIVE THE COACH A 100% COMMITMENT.

• If want to enjoy the benefits of having the ultimate life-coach, we have to be 100% committed to Him.

• Look with me at what part of verse five tells us.

• SLIDE #3

Proverbs 3:5 (NASB) 5Trust in the LORD with all your heart…

• This part of the text is part of the commitment we are called to make if we are going to enjoy the benefits of having the ultimate life coach.

• What does it mean to trust? It means that we put our full confidence in something.
