ARC all access: DINO RIZZO

Notes taken from ARC's All Access Conference at C3 Church, April 27-29
 
DINO RIZZO

Isaiah 58:10 Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble.  Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.
 
- Develope a culture of serving!
- If you want to finish your desting strong, you have to make choices. 
- Its one thing to get the vision.  Its another to ride the vision to the end. 
- Longevity means durable, lasting thry different seasons.  Can we maintain? 
- Its not my ability or talent but about my surrender and folloing God.
 
Read Acts 5:1-22 (story of Annanias & Saphira)
 
- They lied about their offering and were struck dead for lieing to God (they lied and died). 
- Strange that their names mean grace and beauty. 
- Their imatation of another person was not genuine.  If that is true of us, it will get us in trouble. 
- What would the story have been like if they were honest?
 
- Transparency is a huge need today and is a character trait of successful leaders. 
 
- What was it like for the young men who had to carry them out?  They were getting a fresh picture of short lives vision. 
- When we have a situation we know about that discredits others, don't say a word about it but get in the word about it.
 
3 Marks of Longevity:
 
1. HUMILITY
 
- not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less (Rick Warren)
- Annanias and Saphira were proud about their gift.
 
2. HONESTY
 
- foundation of everything in our churches is honesty. 
- Don't pretend to be something you are not.
 
3. HONOR
 
- create an honorable enviorment. 
- Honor those that have gone before us.  Then God will give us a long life. 
- Guard our words ... use honrable words
