We all make promises.
I’m going to pray more.
I’m going to spend more time with my family.
I’m going to read my Bible.
I’m going to get involved with my church.
I’m going to get to know my neighbour’s.
I’m going to get together with so-and-so.
I’m going to lose weight and get fit.
We live life with a lot of good intentions. The prob? Good intentions don’t get the job done. I believe God is calling us, His faithful followers, to be people who get the job done – not started, or halfway finished, or lost in a sea of high-fiving ourselves for a big ol’ “E” for effort – but done.
If you want closer friendships and more meaningful relationships? Do whatever it takes!
If you want a richer community of people and support in your life? Do whatever it takes!
If you want to deepen your prayer life, your Bible reading, your Church attendance, and your understanding of a life of faith? Do whatever it takes!
As Colossians 3:23 says:
“Don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance.”
If we acted on the things we think of doing as often as we think of doing them, imagine how much richer and fuller and deeper our lives would be. Imagine how much more effective we’d be for the Kingdom.
Don’t just think, do!
