How to make your Life count

New Teaching in Soy Tsebaoth Church - Tegucigalpa, Honduras

 
By Bruce Witt
 
During a recent trip to Honduras, I had the privilege of speaking in one of the most influential churches in Tegucigalpa – So Tsebaoth Church. They have several thousand people attending numerous churches and satellites.


I challenged then on “Making your Life Count”

- “One never really lives unless he has something to die for” Soren Kierkegaard
- "Having a purpose is the difference between making a living and making a life." -Tom Thiss
- “He knows the "why" for his existence, and will be able to bear almost any "how." -Viktor Frankl, holocaust survivor
- “It is easy to make a fortune, it is very hard to make a difference.”
 
Life is Short – Make everyday count and be Faithful to opportunity.
    

We all will give an account of how we spent our lives. The question is our faithfulness.

We have been given levels of opportunity.   We have a choice.
 
Challenge -  He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered. Proverbs 28:26

A lack of purpose leads to:

  1. Frustration, you are not making progress, can’t seem to get ahead
  2. Busyness is a result of no clear priorities – a lack of margin is symptom.
  3. Discontentment and discouragement
  4. Little fruit today and in the future
  5. Lack of hope – wrong hope, misplaced hope, no hope

“In back of every wasted life is a bad philosophy, an erroneous conception of life’s worth and purpose.  The man who believes that he was born to get all he can will spend his life trying to get it. The man who believes he was created to enjoy fleshly pleasures will devote himself to pleasure seeking; and if by a combination of favorable circumstance he manages to get a lot of fun out of life, his pleasures will all turn to ashes in his mouth at the last.  He will find out too late that God made him too noble to be satisfied with those tawdry pleasures he had devoted his life to here under the sun.” -  A.W. Tozer

 
Power of Purpose - “Why” | Well done good and faithful servant. Matt 25

  1. Hope and Motivation – Ephesians 1:18
  2. Joy and Contentment – 1 Timothy 6:17
  3. Peace and Security – Philippians 4:6-7
  4. Significance and Satisfaction – James 1:2-4
  5. Fruit and a Legacy – John 15:5
  6. Reward and Recognition – Matthew 6:19-21
 
“I have concluded that the accumulation of wealth, even if I could achieve it, is an insufficient reason for living. When I reach the end of my days, a moment or two from now I must look backward on something more meaningful than the pursuit of houses, land, machines, stocks and bonds. Nor is fame any lasting benefit. I will consider my earthly existence to have been wasted unless I can recall a loving family, a consistent investment in the lives of people and an earnest attempt to serve the God who made me. Nothing else makes much sense.” - James Dobson, Jr.
