Direction – 2014

“Lack of direction, not lack of time is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days,” Zig Ziglar.

Pastor Michael Cook laid out the direction of Albuquerque’s First Baptist Church and the three concepts that God has put on his heart. Listen here.

  1. We need to have an intensity about touching the lives of people. Are you willing to make an intentional effort to do something in the lives of others? What if it costs you something?
  2. Margin. Modern day living devours our margins. Our fellowship will work toward creating margin and becoming debt free. This should apply to our personal lives as well.
  3. Tool Box. We can take care of the things we need when we have margins.

Opportunity awaits to dig deep into prayer life and ask God about His direction. It is an opportunity to do something different, perhaps better. Being truly committed may involve sacrifice. It may change things about you, uncovering pieces of God’s intricate design.

Many choose to be a spectator watching from the stands instead of jumping over the fence to join the team. We have a choice about our time and our direction. God’s priorities can be our own. Someone “all-in” exudes passion. They have direction. Beautiful to watch, it can be contagious.

Going “all-in” creates a heart so completely engaged that lives can’t help but be impacted. What might God do if we all moved in His direction, committed to the core?
