Dr. Tony says the Lord is packed with potential to unpack traffic going beyond what was I this is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative when you're following someone you don't get to choose the router. The destination you do it no longer qualifies as following today.driven says Christ followers maximize their potential. When they stay the course, even in tough times. Let's join him as he elaborates we read these words will always abounding in the work that you will not be crystal clear about works. The Bible makes it clear by grace you can see through God works, so that no one can boast. Bible says my works of righteousness which we make a place with God.

But work we all saying work because were not shipped created and which we should say, reject, redeem, justify or propitiate it because of that comes because of his work, but those men and women who have come to Jesus Christ say no in wants to talk about no. If you God just show all these Christian churches. All these communities. With all these programs and all these ministry all but my beloved brethren once went into this what is now about getting a ministry of the church on that specific, that would be more believers with specific set of marketplaces. If I don't have a job job.

I want to try to get a job will want to try to get the job.

If you say is your service to advance his kingdom that benefits others with his name attached is the man that is the expectation of God. All of his people. God is looking for folks who want to go to work today gives the method gives three things should be, be steadfast, be able always so late pass means to and said to be, and some right now you are steadfast because you see that you lost your place in the spot.

Some of you always know where to locate you because you never you have laid claim to that I have seen some of the US all day even when you wake when I was going up would sometimes take us take us inside the church and after dinner it would take was it was nothing. It was for driving now the tree grass looks the same road because there is no death service to the Lord shall year old living with you all get cool. From your work claiming the right lynching and fast composition as conversation issue something we need to situate something you is your job and for another minute or two and contribute something all over the place. He says this issue service to God's law is wrong and so the Bible said that several of the job is all I served with my friends that it goes somebody wanted to negotiate with you the head of the household nonnegotiable it's it's what you do to make me that's what you get up in the morning and if you need help just because it's a settled issue. This plan this concept of being sped past by saying that it will be tossed to and fro in uncertainty lightning fast means being next-door down to 13. She gave Joshua said's Joshua 2450. We will start which is that the people may concern, Joshua comes out but everything else is not said one of our children will stay on and negotiate what movable change the world changed the says peace that passes, the mandate of no service or labor will that you represent the Lord Christ. That's not negotiable. You are a Christian you are Jesus Christ.

That's right, every man, a lifestyle everyman language. Every man of action is being taken not make service to the Lord negotiable and should be appropriate, but it should not be negotiable. Dr. Evans will build on this principle when he returns in a moment with us.

Let's get back to today's lesson about about how means to ask the required secret on the job.

Your everyday work. You have a job description you have expectations that have been written out whatever the labor the specific task is responsible for the company which you work, the expectation abound means to exceed expectations and what was required to exceed expected to be just been okay. I would just try to make your exceeding expectations. Going beyond what was required exceeding expectations is for God wasting time not just going through the functions are not just showing up as the person required to be there at 830 is ready to go because they want to abound. All of us know people and perhaps many of us, that person. One of the big issues today in our country is issue of entitlement over different perspectives. Entitlement means you suppose this for me, this is my right. Unfortunately, many Christians have the spirit of God is supposed to do this you will not let this happen with the already understand that it would take an eternity to repay.

That's why I want to close the motivation mandate is what is your labor for the Lord .2 abounding what did you show I served aboard Christ and his and I fix I do it steadfast and not seeing the required you to do this we will and can't do it now read chapter 50 chapter 15 of the book of first Corinthians is the leading chapter in the Bible on the resurrection. Okay no chapter competes with chapter 15 on the resurrection of Jesus Christ I Christian today because I believe in the resurrection, but God I am what I grace toward me, but I remember he exceeded requirements yet, but the greatest first 20 lynching so there's also in danger boasting in you, which I have noticed me not to bring drink tomorrow night and which is the problem. Drink some but God shown you never lost sight of the grace and grace from God shown on Christian experience. You wouldn't be in the situation you're in the day. No will. 2212. You will not always a way of life. One specific as we come to a close this chapter is the best thing I can take second verse 54. When this person this morning when I put on immortality will come about saying that is written up in victory. WHERE is your sting of death is the law of God gives us the victory through our Lord. Okay why should be no problem why you want to be a new way because around light may be rough right financially or socially. You get to experience is not meant to explain some going for you right now you have a will is you don't get this okay when you go to a few months later. You gotta think about what is going be like.

We do not deal with insured to be reminded sting sin is so is because income into your and so will let you know though is not God's great and let you know when you commandment to God all which brings about price. If you feel like you're still carrying around that stinger. Dr. Evans was talking about.
