ALL IN

LIVING A LIFE OF DEDICATION TO THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MATTER THE MOST

Week 3   1-25-15


Whatever you do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭23‬ CEB)

HAVING A SENSE OF PURPOSE IS KEY TO LIVING ALL IN
Where there is no vision, the people perish:... (‭Proverbs‬ ‭29‬:‭18‬a KJV)

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭9‬ NKJV)
 

I ) PURPOSE WILL GIVE ME A SENSE OF DIRECTION

I run straight toward the goal to win the prize that God’s heavenly call offers in Christ Jesus. (‭Philippians‬ ‭3‬:‭14‬ GW)

Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly;...  (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭9‬:‭26‬a NIV)
So I do not run without a goal.... (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭9‬:‭26‬a NCV)
So I run with purpose in every step....  (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭9‬:‭26‬a NLT)

HOW DO I GET GOD'S DIRECTION ?

BY MAKING GOD FIRST IN MY LIFE
And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. (‭Mark‬ ‭12‬:‭30‬ NKJV)

Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well. (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭33‬ NCV)

1) FIRST IN MY DAY
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (‭Joshua‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ NKJV)

2) FIRST IN MY WEEK
You should not stay away from the church meetings, as some are doing, but you should meet together and encourage each other. Do this even more as you see the day coming. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭25‬ NCV)
 

3) FIRST IN MY DECISIONS
O God, You are my God; Early will I seek you..... (‭Psalms‬ ‭63‬:‭1‬a NKJV)

You can make many plans, but the LORD’s purpose will prevail. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭19‬:‭21‬ NLT)

4) FIRST IN MY BUDGET
Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the first and best part of all your income. Then your barns will be full, and your vats will overflow with fresh wine. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭9-10‬ GW)
 

.... Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. (‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6‬:‭10‬a NIV)

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭21 NIV)

“....You cannot serve both God and money. (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭24‬b NIV)

5) FIRST IN MY RELATIONS
Stop forming inappropriate relationships with unbelievers. Can right and wrong be partners? Can light have anything in common with darkness? (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭6‬:‭14‬ GW)

II) PURPOSE WILL GIVE ME MY MOTIVATION

But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. (‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭20‬:‭24‬ NLT)

May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance. (‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭3‬:‭5‬ NIV)
 

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ NKJV)

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭31‬ NKJV)
