We all have issues from our past that can haunt us if we let them. The past can be like a prison that can keep us locked up. Living in the past can cloud your present and ruin your future. We have to ask God to heal us from our past so that we can be free from living in bondage. We have to keep the past in the past where it belongs. If not for ourselves, then for those who are counting on us to fulfill our destiny so that we can help fulfill their destiny. Put your past in God's hands. Your future depends on it.

The Bible says that a house divided cannot stand. Whatever you stand for in life needs to be backed up with action. I talked about that concept on my radio show today. We can't be these fair-weather people when it comes to major decisions. The Bible says that a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. Don't just talk the talk, but walk the walk as well. I am definitely one for putting actions to my words. I wanted to go to college, so I took the steps necessary to make that happen. I wanted to be in SAG, so I took the steps necessary to make that happen. On and on and on. The good old saying is true: if you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything. There is too much double-mindedness going on. Stand for something, and mean it.

We constantly hear about someone being referred to as a "self-made" whatever. You know where I'm going with this, right? There is NO SUCH THING as being self-made. I don't know about you, but I don't recall "making myself"; sorry, but the details are quite faint. Sometimes, we can get caught up in this "do-it-yourself" spirit because of pride. The Bible talks about how the apostle Paul had a "thorn in the flesh". It is not specific about what that was, but the point is clearly made. God used that to show Paul that, without Him, he could do nothing. There is nothing to be made without God's help. I wouldn't want to be a part of anything that didn't involve God. Something to think about.

Is there a sit-down ministry at your church? There must be because I see a lot of people come to church and do just that. They're not involved in any special auxiliary or ministry. They just come to church on Sunday morning only; for some people, those Sunday mornings are just Easter and Christmas. As the saying goes, it seems as though 20% of the people in a church are doing 80% of the work. That should not be so.

God doesn't call anyone to sit and do nothing. If you call yourself a member of any church, your presence should be felt. The case should not be your going to a church for years and not one person knows your name. Something is wrong with that picture. This reminds me of the parable of the talents. The servant who hid his ONE talent was branded as a wicked servant. God does not want us to hide in church. We all have gifts and talents to add to the body of Christ. So get busy. Take care and God bless.
