Pastor Greg challenged us yesterday morning to be diligent, to go to another level, to
come up higher into ALL that God has for us.
PLEASE LISTEN TO THE PODCAST IF YOU MISSED IT!! SO POWERFUL!
I walked away from the morning services feeling charged to “move quickly,” to
“elevate the better over the good,” and to use this key that unlocks the blessings of
God in and over my life.
GOD DESERVES OUR BEST, NOT JUST BETTER!
All throughout scripture we find that diligence is a forerunner that results in many
great things coming our way. Let’s look at a few of these to recap:
Application: verse 1- If you diligently obey God’s commands…
Results: verses 3-13- All these blessings will come upon you and overtake
you…What blessings? Check out verses 3-13
Application: Diligently seek Him
Results: Get rewarded by the Rewarder (One who pays wages, rewards)
2 Peter 1:5-8
Application: Give all diligence to add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to
knowledge self control, to self control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to
godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.
Results: For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren or
unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:10
Application: Be even more diligent to make your calling and election sure
Results: You will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you
abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I’ll sum all this up by saying… Seek God first! Give your best! Go beyond! Step out!
Spring up! Stretch farther! Move quicker! Reach higher! ALL by FAITH!! (Hebrews
11:6) Then trust God with the results and watch Him pour abundant blessings on
