Where the rubber meets the road.


Good Day Reader!  This is that moment when reality sets in.  Why?  Because this is that moment when you become aware that the health, longevity, effectiveness, potential, and future of the Church is in your hands.  Literally.  No, seriously, this isnt some flowery advocation that is supposed to get you thinking.  Its all yours.  

So what are you going to do with it?  Liken it to a wad of clay.  If you set it down and think "I'll get back to that later...when I have the time."  Whats going to happen to it?  Its going to be hard, crusty, useless, and unmoldable when you eventually "get back to it."  The time to use the clay is NOW, when its fresh, when it can be shaped into something useful.  

Your work is a lot like that clay.  We must take advantage of opportunities in front of us while they are fresh.  Dont wait to address the problems around you until its convenient for you, or when you 'feel like it.'  God put you right where he needs you, right when he needs you.  Dont let the clay harden.  

Imagine if Nehemiah had pushed off his work with the rebuilding of Jerusalem for....say another 50 years.  I mean, the walls were already down for over 100 years prior... What the rush?  Well, he probably wouldnt have the relationship with the King, wouldnt have been able to secure funding and resources, wouldnt have been able to push the oppositiion away as easily, and he may not have even had a city to rebuild at all.  

 

What are you waiting for?  We've got a lot of dryed out and crusty ministry opportunities laying around.  We must open our eyes to the rubble around us.  Before its too late.
