Why I don’t want to just speak……..


THOUGHT OF THE DAY

 

Therefore I do not run uncertainly (without definite aim).

I do not box like one beating the air and striking without

an adversary.

But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly,

discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that

after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things

pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not

stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a

counterfeit].

1 Corinthians 9:26, 27

 

I don’t know about you but as a writer there is always

this urge to share everything I learn! It has been something

that has been a continual fight to be honest.

 

“What to share, and what not to share” is the constant

question I ask myself. I have won at times and I have lost.

The issue is not just in sharing but am I living out what I share?

Do I live what I preach? Get the drift?

I don’t ever want to get caught up in sharing for the sake

of it without ever looking at my life and trying to marry the

two things, what I say and what I do.

 

As leaders we need to do everything in our power to make

sure our actions are matching up with what we are speaking.

What we say and what we do should go hand in hand.

Paul didn’t want to be disqualified from the race because of this

very same thing. He didn’t want to get to a place where after

showing people the way, he couldn’t enter himself because

his actions didn’t match his words!

 

Thank God we are not alone to do this. The Holy Spirit is here

to help us. We must humble ourselves and ask for His help.

He doesn’t want us to fail, to miss heaven. He wants us to

bring as many people as we can to the kingdom.

Thank God we have the Holy Spirt to help us.

We are not alone in this. He is helping us…..

So as I end, remember to live what you preach!

  1. My friend, great reminder and encouragement from the Word today. It was much needed (as any reminder of the Bible is). I’m glad to see that we are still connected. I thought I had lost you for a little bit but I think I was just confused between two separate blogs. Take care!
