Live Intentionally - II Timothy 4

Paul was a man who lived life to the full. His goals were to know Christ, abide in His power, fellowship in His suffering, and preach the gospel (Philippians 3:10; (I Corinthians 1:17). In doing so, he aligned his aspirations with the Lord's, diligently worked to fulfill his calling, and persevered through opposition, persecution, and suffering. He could face the end of his life with confidence since he'd "fought the good fight," "finished the course," and "kept the faith" (II Timothy 4:7).

We'd all like to be able to say the same at the end of our lives, but that means we have to follow Paul's example. How are you doing at setting goals for your life? Have you thought beyond the immediate and set some long-term objectives? Our culture is so fast-paced that few of us take the time to actually consider where we're going. But you don't want to finish your life and find out you were on a course other than God's, fighting the wrong fight, and struggling to keep the faith.

Why not set aside some time this week to get alone with the Lord. Then ask His help in setting goals that will take you where He wants you to go. Consider every area of your life - personal, relational, financial, and vocational - but make spiritual goals your primary emphasis. Then write them down.

If you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting. Maybe it's time to get out of your rut and find a new path. God will help you change direction and accomplish new goals that align with His will. Don't settle for the mediocrity of an unplanned life. Start living intentionally.

Current Sermon Series
      When we're pushed to our limit, we have a choice to make. Will we choose the path of least resistance or will we have the courage to take a Stand? In this five-week series, we will learn about Daniel and five important points in his life when he stood for God. Covering everything from him being first captured as a boy to the lion's den to the fiery furnace, we'll see Daniel and his friends Stand Up, Stand Strong, Stand In, and Stand Firm for God.

Last Week:
      When we have been praying for a long time and haven't seen any change, know that God has heard your prayer from the first prayer. God cares for you more than you do. He's doing more than you can see, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our

Next Week:
      We will conclude our series, Stand by looking at how we are to be Standing Firm In The Faith.
