How you can get a spiritual promotion in life

September 26, 2013           

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.

Hebrews 5:12-14

I heard about a little boy who was finishing up his very last day of first grade. So his teacher was saying goodbye to the kids as they were going out the door and the little boy stopped and said, “Teacher, I want to stay in first grade with you.”

“That’s sweet,” the teacher said. “But you’ll have new teachers next year.”

“Yeah, I know,” the boy said. “Then I wish you were smart enough to come teach me in second grade!”

Very often in the spiritual life, people get stuck in first grade. They find comfort in the elementary things of the faith and they never really move on. I’m not arguing that the elementary aspects aren’t important, but they’re a foundation on which the rest of the spiritual life is built!

If you’ve grown comfortable in the Christian life – living spiritual high to spiritual high, not growing deeper in the Word, and never really getting out and doing something big for Jesus – then maybe you’re stuck in a grade and need to move forward. Take the next step by trusting deeper in Christ and taking risks for God. That’s how you get promoted in the spiritual life!

GET PROMOTED IN THE SPIRITUAL LIFE BY PRESSING DEEPER INTO JESUS AND TAKING RISKS FOR HIM.

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013


Dear Friend,

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.

Thank you!
