Stand

Notes from Pastor Charles:

To stand is to be present.

Do you give up to easily? “Diligence and faithfulness are top shelf assets in any endeavor.”

  • Stay the course
  • Do not become distracted
  • Stay on the task
  • Just put your head down and walk it out

Do you tell the truth? “Truthfulness shows you are dependable.”

  • There are two reasons why people life – they are ashamed or to gain an advantage.
  • People who lie are not in control of themselves.
  • People who are not in control of themselves, cannot stand.

What is my purpose?

  • We all need challenges because we are made to overcome.
  • You have to challenge to want to get up in the morning.
  • Without a challenge, your life will atrophy. When hard times come, your withered life cannot stand.

Do you love people?

  • Loving others enriches you.
  • Filter every moment of your life through the love you have.

Am I generous?

  • “By your generosity, you will stand.” – Isaiah 32.8
