A Journey Without End

Del Enns Pastor
2 Timothy 1

We need to renew our commitment or a regular basis. What is our vision? It takes 21 days to form a habit. 21 days to lose it.
We need to grow spiritually. You need to be plugged into a care group. Unleash compassion in the community. We raised $45,000 for Forward House.

Influencing Investing Learning Seeking are stepping stones to Spiritual Growth.
Baptism and service are steps of growth. Raising your foot moving forward to get somewhere else.
Susan at age 91 is still serving the elderly. She is growing. If we don't move forward we are not growing.

Deut 1:6-7- you have stayed here long enough. Time to move on.
Influence is the exercise of spiritual force.
Paul wrote this letter from prison where he was awaiting execution. Paul wrote encouraging words in his difficult situation.
Are we bold in sharing how we feel about our faith? Do we dare talk about it in public? Paul prayed for Timothy constantly.

Aquila and the Bee. Movie clips. Spelling Bee. What do you want to be when you grow up? Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We are born to manifest the glory of God. Stand up and show what you can do with God.
Paul reminded Timothy to fan the flame.

Aquila's mom was her first encourager. Don't drop out before you fail.

Mentor someone. Give a word of encouragement to someone. Pick up your Bible and find strength to do the right thing. To associate with the right crowd.

The cracked water pot watered the flowers along the path. God used it just the way it was.
God wants to use us just the way we are.
Happy 2010
