Reach The Heart Moment: Preparation

Published on:
August 3, 2020

All of us, at some point in our lives have had an individual we have idolized. A great movie star; a great rock star; a great athlete.

Go by a park and you’ll see kids playing a game of baseball or football and you will hear one of those kids saying, “I’m Kirby,” or “I’m Carson Wentz”.

You go to a party where the music is playing and whether it is Christian or not, you hear some of the guys over in the corner talking about how they would make a great guitar player as they imitate playing the lead guitar.

Not everyone can be a great athlete. A few will make it big as great musicians, but everyone of us has the ability to become a great Christian.

To be a great athlete takes practice. Running, lifting, situps, push ups and stretching for hours to hopefully someday play a sport. And yet, very few ever make it to the big time.

To be a great musician takes practice. You learn chords, rhythms, techniques and variations all to help you put a better sound together when you join with musicians, but the promise of success is still not there.

Serving Christ is the only lifestyle we have been promised reward for.

Take a look at Philippians 3:12-14:

I don’t mean to say I am perfect. I haven’t learned all I should even yet, but I keep working toward that day when I will finally be all that Christ saved me for and wants me to be.
No, dear brothers, I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God is calling us up to heaven because of what Christ Jesus did for us.” (TLB)

I’m Pastor Cal and I pray you reach a heart through this Reach the Heart Moment.
