You Can Do This!


Last week’s “Encouragement from Your Pastor” reminded you of the marvelous promise in Ephesians 3:20. Yes, you can do this!  You can do whatever it takes to live your life holy and pleasing to God.  You can resist temptations.   You can have peace during crisis.  You can have joy in the midst of sorrowful circumstances. 


God desires to work through you in a way that creates “You can do this!” moments!  Recognizing these moments occurs more easily when you have balance in life.  Finding balance in life and learning to ‘Live in the Moment’ comes when you focus on what is truly important.

Let me refresh your thoughts about the meaning of ‘important.’


Considering the ‘Who,’ ‘What,’ and ‘How’ of important, you will be empowered for the moments you encounter this coming week.

“Who.”  Who is important in your life?  Live in a way that reflects that.

“What.”  What are the important tasks of your life? (Knowing your purpose helps you determine what is truly important.)  Remember, some things are not  just unimportant; they are totally unnecessary.

“How.”  How important is it to God? 


Properly responding to these three questions will help you know the true meaning of ‘important.’  Knowing the true meaning of ‘important’ will bring balance in your life and ministry and empower you to be a “DOER” of the Word.  Indeed, you will begin experiencing the marvelous promise of Ephesians 3:20 working through all you do!


Through Christ, “You Can Do This!”

Going BEYOND Through Christ, 
Pastor Gary
