Exciting Stuff This Week!

5 10 2009

Tuesday evening, on both sides of Tampa Bay, we are moving into session two of our study in Wild at Heart. We are going to explore “The Poser” and “The Question That Haunts Every Man”. If you are to get your heart back, if you are going to live a life of purpose, you must know who you are – who God made you to be. Come join us at 6:45pm for dinner, followed by our study!

Friday evening Men at the Cross Tampa Bay starts! The event has moved from the Sundome in Tampa to First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks. Doors open at 5:30pm Friday. Saturday morning the doors open at 7:30am. Guys, don’t miss this empowering event. We are all called to fulfill the Great Commission, but most of us don’t know how. This weekend will give you the tools, knowledge, and motivation to do as Jesus asked, to “go into all the world and make disciples…” See you at the cross Friday evening!

MATC ON MONDAY MORNING: WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

FOR ALL THOSE WILDMEN WHO WENT TO MATC: As we were walking out of the building on Saturday, one of the men at a booth commented what could we give the men to help them on Monday morning. I offer the note I sent a young man months ago:

Most excellent, Matthew! Please consider this: whenever you present spiritual truth that requires a response for the truth to be experienced in your life, be sure to clearly outline the specific steps you take to experience that truth.That is the antidote for the Bakery Trap that religion falls in on Sundays. You know, you hear all about the bread and how good it tastes, you can smell the bread and your mouth starts watering so you can almost taste it, you look through the window of the bakery and can see the bread, BUT NO ONE TELLS YOU HOW TO COME IN TO THE BAKERY AND GET SOME BREAD!

The steps to experience what your note talks about are:1) Recognize that every night when you go to sleep, your mind resets to its default setting which is the flesh.2)After you wake up, if you do not make a conscious decision to do otherwise, you WILL walk out of the house IN THE FLESH. The result wil be you will not be a happy camper.3)ON THE OTHER HAND, if you obey Jesus” command to deny yourself, pick up your cross daily and follow Jesus by praying “Lord I reckon myself as dead in the flesh because of what you did for me on Calvary” AND4)Ask the Father in Heaven for His Spirit to fill you so that rivers of living water flow out of your innermost being, THEN you will walk out the houseIN THE SPIRIT.5)During the day, whenever you begin to experience worry, fear, anxiety, lust, pride,… let that being a red flashing light on your dashboard that you need to haul ass back to the cross and repeat the process of dying to self and asking the Father to refill you with His Spirit. Over time, instead of being a redlight on the dashboard, the redlight will be an early warning device to alert you of incoming temptation. THIS is spiritual growth.

Keep the good Word coming and be blessed!
