It's the Doing that's Difficult

Chances are there have been times in your life when you knew WHAT to do, but had a hard time actually doing it.


  • You set an alarm for a certain time but then hit snooze 16x
  • You started a diet or exercise program but didn't stick to it
  • You knew you should pray more or be more kind to people but you hit snooze and that guy is really irritating


What are some other things you KNOW but have a hard time DOING?

(click on the "Add notes" link below and keep track of what God is saying to you through the service)

It's the DOING that's DIFFICULT

  • Getting the trash out on time
  • Sharing your faith
  • Saying "I'm Sorry."
  • Watching your language
  • Disciplining your kids
  • Practicing spiritual disciplines- giving, serving, prayer.

Colossians 1:16

16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

Colossians 1:17

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together

Colossians 1:20

and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Colossians 4:2-6

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.


PRACTICE what Jesus PRIORITIZED

PRAYER

Be WATCHFUL

Be THANKFUL

PEOPLE

How you ACT

How you SPEAK


Go back and read the following passages from Colossians and you'll get a clear picture of how God desires you to live TO Jesus, THROUGH Jesus and FOR Jesus and others:

  • Colossians 1:9-12
  • Colossians 2:20-23
  • Colossians 3:5-10

This weeks challenge:

Pray: Pray for US, pray for ME (Pastor Corey and other ministry leaders here), be WATCHFUL and THANKFUL

People: How you ACT and how you SPEAK around others



It's all FROM Jesus, it's all THROUGH Jesus and it's all FOR Jesus.

When we practice what Jesus prioritized others will see Him in us and our goal of helping every person possible find real life in Jesus and look more like Him every day will become reality.

We want you to know that you matter to God and us.
