What a time to decide, “I am on the Lord side.” Too many people ride fences, watching, waiting, but never get about living.
Allow me to offer some key steps for those who are on the Lord’s side.
First, ENJOY this ride called life, don’t just endure it. To many, these days have been given to enduring. Jesus said He came to give us life – and that life is to be enjoyed, not endured. So, get about living rather than dying. Which brings me to the second step.
ENTER into it, don’t resist it. As Teddy Roosevelt stated, I’d rather have a life checkered by failure than not to have tried. Life happens in the moment, not watching them go by. Thus…
Thirdly, EMRACE the moments – don’t regret them. Every moment of every day is an opportunity to make an ETERNAL difference.
Lastly, EXPERIENCE His presence. God is always with us – working for our good and His glory. Think about that. Nothing is ever wasted in the presence of a God.
Now listen, will there be push back? Absolutely. You can count on it. But greater is He than anything we could ever face.
As your pastor, I want you to live in the miraculous, not the mundane, and that can only happen as you take each one of these steps.
