Maximizing your life

August 17, 2011

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

Romans 12:1

I want to remind you of something that's of critical importance: This is your life!

Your life had a beginning in your mother's womb that was ordained by God, and someday your life will have an end… and God willing, there will be thousands of days in between.

But it's how you live your life over the course of those days that is of utmost importance. Life demands your complete focus on God.

I'm reminded of when I played college baseball and the coach would say, "Wait for your pitch… watch for it! And when it comes, you swing with everything you've got!" So that's what I'm saying to you today, "Don't miss your pitch!" This is your life; don't miss what God has for you!

There are so many people who live their lives just punching the clock in and out and they never pause long enough to ask, "What is my life to be about?" 

We need to be fully engaged in living our lives for Christ Jesus. In fact, we ought to live in such a way that when we die, the evil one says, "Whew, glad that one's gone!"

Present your body to God for his service. Let it be your foremost goal to make a difference for Christ, and you'll have a life well lived.

THIS IS YOUR LIFE; DON'T MISS WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU!

Tap into your only true source of power!

Dear Friend,

When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!

That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular 365-day devotional book called A Daily Encounter with God.This powerful tool contains a Bible-focused reading for each day that will help you plug into Jesus Christ—your only true source of power.

Along with the devotional, I’d like to send you a copy of my I Am Second story on CD. It’s my prayer that my story will be of encouragement to you or someone you know!

Both of these resources are my gifts to bless you when you give an online donation today. So thank you for giving to help PowerPoint reach people with the Good News of Jesus ’til the whole world hears.

Jack Graham
