Deut 12:5-14 &28

We need get where go wants us to go

I feel like the body of Christ is wandering

Made a vow to set and discuss where our church is headed

Where there is no vision, the people perish---

I have a direction in my family

1. love my wife- grow old, get grouchy, watch our kids grow

2. love my kids- see them excel, grow, fail, succeed, what will they look like etc.

3. love my God- I want to seek more of God’s power

see the dead raised- withered hands healed, what God has for me

YOU SEE I HAVE A VISION- I NEED VISION,

SO I CAN BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE-

I know where I want to see this church go-

I want relationships- with each other, with God,

I want to make disciples, find people’s giftings,

I want our #’s to grow, but if that means you’re not growing- I pick YOU

Unfortunately- As Christians and humans- we’re lost

“where you gonna be when you turn 50, 60, 70,”

Too many people don’t know

WHERE YOU HEADED? SOUTH! Victoria? Mexico?

What are some things that will increase our success, and our journey

It was important to Moses, in this passage- Tell them where they’re going

Vs.10-11>

1. Begin with the end in mind

Church we gotta quit working for something-

Start working toward something

1 CORINTHIANS 9:24-26

Know where the finish line is!

Look at it run toward it

Don’t just beat the air- take a big deep breath of it- find your place

Sometimes YOUR end is wrong, at least have one

We moved to Lubbock- COUPLE YRS. WERE GONE

JEFF”S MOM SPOKE A WORD OVER MISSY

We will minister in Lubbock- till we’re through ministering

Pastors think of, BIG CHURCH, BIG TITLE, BIG CHECK

I don’t want any of that- except BIG CHECK

GOD has changed my mind on what the end is---

STILL HAVE AN END

Church, begin with the end in mind

Isaiah 46:9-10

God declared your end at beginning

Satan comes to Him, “SEE WHAT OLE SHANES DOING?”

God can’t talk about our past, too busy seeing our future

2. Read the instructions

WE DON”T NEED NO STINKIN’ INSTRUCTIONS

Know what going on around you

Make sure you have all the parts,

All the tools, all the wisdom

TO ASSEMBLE A GREAT LIFE

I don’t put anything together

But in life- SOME ASSEMBLY IS NESSECARY

Were always so busy talking about how we can put it together

2 hours later, finally read- do it right

WE NEED TO LISTEN MORE THAN WE TALK

In the movie “PULP FICTION”

2 kind of people in the world

1. Those who listen

2. Those who wait to talk

Jesus said 16 TIMES in New Testament

“HE WHO HAS AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR”

Either there was a lot of people earless,

Or Jesus is trying to tell us something

JOKE- A woman sees on the news that there is a crazy driver going down the wrong side of the Interstate. She phones her husband, on his way home, to warn him of the driver. He answers and she says, "Be careful, some idiot is driving down the wrong side of the Interstate." Her husband responds, "Not just one, there’s hundreds driving down the wrong side of the Interstate.

Quit talking start listening, read the instructions

Listen to your spouse- THE BEST GODLY COUNSEL I HAVE- MISSY

Spend less time telling God what you want, more time waiting for him give- need
