The Book of Job… (2) Don’t Waste Your Life!
CELEBRATORS… Job 42:12a says something rather fascinating… The Lord BLESSED the LATTER PART of Job’s life more than the FIRST… Not sure about you Celebrators – but I WANT THAT… I WANT THAT FOR ME and I WANT THAT FOR YOU! And I’m pretty sure since God did that for JOB – that He wants to do the same for YOU… BLESS YOU TOO! Each week of this series we’re looking closely at the RESPONSES of JOB when ‘all hell broke loose in his life’ – to see how JOB RESPONDED to receive such a BLESSING in his LATER LIFE! Our prayer is that YOU TOO would evaluate YOUR RESPONSES - when tough things happen – to measure the consistency of YOUR RESPONSES with JOB’S – to see if you are IN LINE of the BLESSINGS of GOD too!
Below is a sneak-peak of this week’s message… (2) DON’T WASTE YOUR LIFE!
Stop making EXCUSES for your PAST!
-God didn't call you to make EXCUSES - He called you to make a DIFFERENCE!
-Decide NOW for a better LATER!
(1) GOD IS GOOD!
-We are not BLESSED because of WHO WE ARE… we are BLESSED because of WHO GOD IS!
Am I using my GIFTS?
-Please know this Celebrator… You’ll NEVER figure out GOD’S PLAN… without ever embracing… HIS PURPOSE… The Local Church! (Get INVOLVED with your GENEROSITY… Time/Talents/Treasures!)
(2) YOUR TIME IS LIMITED!
-The ONLY thing that GOD is CONCERNED ABOUT with WHAT WE DO HERE… IS WHAT WILL MATTER... THERE!
Job 7:7… Our lives are but a VAPOR!
-We MUST become AWARE of DOING or PURSUING THINGS... IN THIS LIFE... that have NO ETERNAL SIGNIFICANCE or VALUE!
(3) YOUR LIFE MATTERS!
-Ck-out Psalm 139... You were created ON Purpose... WITH a Purpose... FOR a Purpose!
