The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
THE TWO MINUTE WARN
Most of us who know sports know the two minute warn is given in football very shortly before the end of the game. It tells the teams to get busy. It tells the wining team to hold fast and the losing team to get busy.
I have recently talked to a good friend who has been wanting to serve the Lord fully. He had tried several times and was put on the side lines. I know this had to be very hard...for I have been there. It really impressed me when he asked for prayer in one chat session in one of our clubs for him to be content with being on the side lines and not in the game. I told him I admired willingness as he was also praying greatly as he was on the side lines and was beginning to cheer the players on.
I also told him I felt that God was now calling him into the game. It was then that he told me he was weeping. I responded that I do that often too in the ministry God has given me.
You see my friend, THIS person realizes that time is so short and he wants to do all that he can to reach the lost.
Look at our clubs...not only this one...but most of the clubs that are really serving the Lord. Look as the many ways satan is sowing discord...throwing other foot balls in to confuse us...doing all he can to distract us. It is for this reason we both feel we have gotten THE TWO MINUTE WARN.
Now mind you, I am not saying we only have a few moments left but we know time is SHORT. Two minutes with God could be 120 seconds, two years or two decades BUT the point is we need to get BUSY reaching lost ones for the Lord... WE need to be busy letting LOVE ABOUND. and YES...sitting on the side lines IF that is what the COACH is telling us to do...for Paul spent 3 years in the wilderness preparing for his position in the game.
My friend...what will YOUR position be in this game we call LIFE? Will you be content being a quarterback? A lineman? a tackle blocking the opposing team? How about a water boy carrying needed refreshment to those in the game...
My precious friend ALL are needed.
1 Corinthians 12
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
So my friend, what position are you going to take? Ask the Lord to show you today. Be it content to be on the side line for a time...or to be in the game...we NEED YOU!
Contact us and find where the Lord may be wanting YOU today. and btw...IF you are not on the team yet... join today....
My Lord, Please give us Your instructions on what You would have us do...Impress upon us the fact that the THE TWO MINUTE WARN has sounded...and that it is not too late for those who have not joined the team to do so...but also that although it may be late in the game.. none of us know how long it is between LATE.....and TOO LATE.
