What a glorious Lenten Season, Holy Week and Easter we experienced this year at Out Of The Box Worship Center. We were blessed with 263 people in our worship services on Easter Sunday. I am excited about what God is doing among us.
Now God has given me a vision for our next sermon series and I will be asking you this question…..
What’s Your BHAG?
What’s your BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL?
What is your vision for your life and what are you currently doing about it? Hey, folks, don’t waste your life! Proverbs 28:19 says, “He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.” NLT. Without God’s Word, people abandon themselves to their own sinful ways. In other words, God gives the vision and we make the goals to get there.
So, what’s your BHAG for yourself?
What’s your BHAG for your family, for your church?
Over the next several weeks, I will be asking you these questions and I promise, if you will listen, understand and carry out what you learn from these messages, your life will change for the better!
God does have a vision for your life and my prayer for you is that God will reveal His vision to you and give you the courage, strength and wisdom to carry it out. The Bible clearly shows us that God’s vision is for all of us to come to know Him through His son Jesus Christ and this vision was in place long before the world began. God also tells us in Mark 12:30 what he wants us to do. “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength.”
I look forward to seeing you at Out Of The Box Worship Center. Please come and worship with us and let’s pray about your BHAG! Everyone is welcome!
The Nobel Prize awarded for peace was created a century ago by Alfred B. Nobel (1833-1896), a man who amassed his fortune by producing explosives. Among other things, Nobel invented dynamite.
The following event is what motivated this Swedish munitions manufacturer to dedicate his fortune to honoring and rewarding those who benefited humanity?
When Alfred Nobel’s brother died, the local newspaper ran a long obituary of Alfred Nobel, believing that it was he who had passed away. What he read bothered him so much he decided to dedicate the rest of his life to something that would change the way he was remembered.The newspaper described him as a man who had made it possible to kill more people more quickly than anyone else who had ever lived.
At that moment, Alfred Nobel realized two things: that this was how he was going to be remembered, and that this was not how he wanted to be remembered. Shortly thereafter, he established the Nobel Peace Prize. Today, because of his doing so, everyone is familiar with the Nobel Prize, while relatively few people know how Nobel made his fortune.
Thinking about how one’s obituary is going to read can motivate us to rethink how we are currently spending our life. No eulogy ever says he/she dressed well, lived extravagantly, took dynamite vacations, drove an expensive car, or built the most expensive home. We never hear of anyone praised for being too busy at work to find time for their children.
The people who are most mourned are not the richest or the most famous, or the most successful. They are people who enhanced the lives of others.
