Roots: Developing a Deeper Walk with God – Disc 1, Part 2

Following-Through

First Corinthians 13:8 says, “Love never fails….” One translations says, “Love never stops…” Usually you won’t fail if you won’t stop moving forward.  I think many are living below God’s best and living without His blessings, not because they are doing wrong things, but because they have stopped doing the right things. They gave up too soon.  If we are going to experience God’s best in our lives, we have to follow- through.  As Christ-followers we shouldn’t just think short term.  “How can I get where I want to be this week? This month?  This year?”  A Christ-follower (a leader) thinks about a lifetime.  We’re not thinking that when we hit forty, fifty or sixty the end of our life is near.  We should be thinking about living our life long enough to establish God’s will, to fulfill His plans, to finish the work He called us to and to be the people He created us to be.

The world thinks:

*Get rich quick.  How do I get what I want now?     * I don’t want to fulfill my contract.  If I don’t like it, I should quit or renegotiate.   * I don’t want to follow-through on my word.   * I don’t want to get married.  Let’s just have sex.

Today many people can’t follow-through. Often times that is why they are wracked with failure .  You and I are supposed to be different and follow God’s plan.  Part of that plan is long-term thinking and long-term follow-through.

Change is the way to LIFE

...we must be willing to change

Throughout the book of Proverbs, the words reproof, reprove, rebuke, correct and teach show us that to have the wisdom, and the ways of God, we must be willing to change.  Renewing our mind is more than just learning, and change is more than just gaining new insight or information.  The process of change has as much to do with “taking off” as it does “putting on.”  It is as much about subtracting, as it is about adding.  In Eph. 4:22-24 Paul says, “that we put off, concerning our former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of our minds, and that we put on the new man which was created according to God, in righteousness and holiness.” God uses the “taking off” and “putting on” principle throughout the New Testament.  In the process of renewing our minds, we have to realize that there are as many thoughts that must be taken off as there are that must be put on.  It is possible to learn many good things, but also possible to never take off the things or thoughts that keep us from success.
