How God can use you to start something big
February 1, 2013
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other…”
When I was a little boy, I used to love taking a magnifying glass out in the front yard, piling a bunch of leaves together, and using the magnifying glass to focus the sunlight on those leaves and catching them on fire. And as I think back on that, I’m reminded of the power of focused energy.
You see, dry vegetation doesn’t just burst into flames when left out in the sun. Even on the hottest summer days here in Texas when the temperature gets up to 108 degrees, we don’t have a problem with spontaneous combustion of dead grass. It takes concentrated light to start a fire.
Life moves at a very fast pace for most of us today. And if we let it get to us, we’ll forget the specific purpose God has given us for our lives and end up being pulled in a hundred different directions. But if we’ll focus on the gifts we have and the outlet God’s given us to exercise those gifts, that concentrated energy can ignite a fire of the Holy Spirit in our lives and others.
Don’t allow life to pull you in too many directions. Focus on the ministry God has given you and He’ll use that concentrated energy to start something big!
FOCUS YOUR TIME AND ENERGY ON THE MINISTRY GOD HAS GIFTED YOU TO FULFILL AND HE’LL USE YOU TO IGNITE SOMETHING BIG!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
