It is hard to imagine life before The Point Church! But 4 years ago Mary and I launched our amazing church on Long Island. We have been seeing some pretty amazing things over the last several years – most of them miraculous. Yes, there have been challenges, but they have changed us/prepared us for what God is getting ready to do at our church! We started our fourth year in prayer and we know that “prayer moves mountains.”
What am I going to do in this 4th year to push us toward our vision?
- Pray harder.
- Dream bigger.
- Trust God more.
- Focus on mission.
- Cut away excess.
- Develop more leaders.
- Say NO to the good – so we can get the God idea.
- Take risks.
- Keep people accountable.
- Tell the truth – even when its tough.
- Work hard.
- Take my vacations. Spend more time with my family.
- 1 month teaching sabbatical.
More and more specifics soon. But in order to get God’s best I must follow God’s principles. The previous 13 are things that the Lord has been impressing on my heart.
Proverbs 6:20-22: “My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction.Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck. When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you.”
2012 is the year of prayer. That means I must live by principle and not be pressure.
