Monumental Moments In Life

I got home yesterday from preaching a 3-night rally in Colorado. I like the emphasis on kicking off the school year right—with Bible preaching! Today, I’ll be re-preaching all three sermons (not all in Sunday school!) as we think about starting the year strong. Each day is a new beginning […]

Healthy Dissatisfaction

 

What’s that mean?!

It means it’s okay to not be okay with some things. You should be dissatisfied with certain aspects of your Christian life. I’m not saying you should be discontent, upset or mad… I’m saying you should be healthily dissatisfied.

Never be okay with your spiritual walk. The minute you think you’re okay, the devil will blindside you. Further, you’ll never “arrive” at the ultimate spiritual place… you should always be growing.

Never be okay with our class growth. “We have a good amount of people. We don’t need anyone else. It’s fine how it is.” Banish those thoughts from your mind! We can always use more teens in our class, and it will take work! Remember Be Our Guest? Every teen greets every guest. Bro. Ken and I were watching a couple weeks ago and the ladies did well, but the men fell a little short. Everyone should notice guests and greet everyone in class. Also, keep up on the ones who might only come on Sunday mornings.

  • Invite them to Wednesdays
  • Sit with them
  • Make sure they know about activities
  • Friend them on FB

Never be okay with how much you serve. No one here serves too much. I’ve been around a lot of churches and I’ve seen a lot of different types of people. Some people only come on Sunday mornings and think you’re crazy for asking them to serve. Other people… you can’t keep them away from church they serve so much! There’s a whole spectrum of people out there. Be one of those whose whole lives are centered around church. Serve. Do right.

Love God. Love others. Do right.

– Bro. Ryan
