built it, aim at it, lead to it :: Tuesday E-Devotion

"If you build it, they will come." --- quote from the movie Field of Dreams
 
"If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time." --- popular quote about leadership
 
Guide them somewhere.  That is one of those things that I just have to do.  We are called as Christians to lead people to Jesus, yet very few Christians are doing that with any strategy.   If we get a chance to share, we may invite a person to church, but that is it.
 
Listen up, the church is the place where we need to invite people, but our lives have got to be pointing people somewhere.  Where do you point people? 
 
As we talk about vision, it is important to know that we are making a difference.  That we are impacting our community, the people around us for Jesus which means that we get what God is giving us.
 
Luke 9:23 (nlt) --- Then he said to the crowd, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me.
 
Matthew 4:19 (nlt) --- Jesus called out to them, "Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!"
 
1 Corinthians 11:1 (nlt) --- And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.

My point: it is time to plan to be successful and not leave all the fun to others.  God has chosen us to get the word out.  It is time to build it, aim at it and lead to it.  What is 'it'?  Remember.
 
It is all about Jesus!
