Act Now!

May 17, 2010

“. . . don’t just point out problems; be the solution. Don’t just criticize what’s wrong; do something right.  Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.  Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention.” ~ Mark Batterson from his book, Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity

This quote really hit me in the gut this evening.  When things are tough, not going our way, confusing, and frustrating, we tend to point out problems, criticize, and just try to make it through.  We are called and destined for so much more.  We need to “dream dreams as big as (God)” as Louie Giglio says.  We need to take hold of those passions, dreams, and visions that God has placed in our hearts and act on them with intentionality.  Don’t fault find, don’t complain, don’t just barely slide by . . . act under the direction of and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
