CFC HLT Talk 7 : Single-Mindedness for God

  1. 1. CFC Laguna Technopark Chapter Single-Mindedness for God Bro Cocoy Claravall HLT TALK 7
  2. 2. These people had single- mindedness for God ______ sought God every day. ___ followed Him through the most devastating circumstances. _____ relied on Him at the risk of her own life. ____ chased after God, and His passion bleeds through the Psalms.
  3. 3. The Road to Emmaus They seem to have given up. They were disappointed because of wrong expectations On the positive side, they went back to the disciples after breaking bread with Jesus.
  4. 4. What lessons can we learn here? We need to examine our reasons for following Jesus. John the Baptist condemns superficial and opportunistic “repentance". We need to open up our hearts and let the word of God burn in our hearts. We can only be single-minded for God if our vision is clear, if we know the place of Jesus in our life, if we have a right relationship with him, and if we know where we are going.
  5. 5. Many of us come into a new life in the Lord, but we keep our boats in reserve, so that if necessary we can return to the world. We need to forego all other options. In our new life, there should be no turning back.
  6. 6. Learn to persevere and be patient. Prepare for the long haul. Moving on in the Christian life is the task of a lifetime. "Take up your cross and follow me". Jesus did not promise that if we followed him there would be no more problems. In fact, the Christian life is a life of embracing and loving the cross of Christ.
  7. 7. Set a goal in personal virtue Without personal virtues, we cannot be singleminded for God. There will always be some distractions that are too attractive. Steadfastness. Tobit 4:5-6. Humility. Phil 2:3-4. Obedience. Jesus' example. Courage. Kindness. The example of Mother Teresa.
  8. 8. "Love begins at home, it is not how much we do but how much love we put in the action that we do. To God Almighty, how much we do does not matter, but how much love we put in that action. How much we do to him in the person we are serving. And let us all meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. Let us keep that joy of loving Jesus in our hearts and share that joy with all that we come in touch with”
  9. 9. Seek to suffer a little every day for God. Denying ourselves too much of the pleasures of life. Forbearing in relationship difficulties. Giving things up like more sleep in favor of more prayer.
  10. 10. Detach yourself from your desires and plans. God has the best plan for our lives. Jer 29:11. We need to let go of our preconceived notions of what is best for us. We need to approach the Lord without any preset agenda.
  11. 11. Seek consolation only from God. This is not only the proper attitude, but a practical and realistic one. Every one else can fail us, but God never will. In the midst of difficulty, especially from those closest to us, God is our consolation. It is only God Who can truly comfort us. Mt 11:28-30
  12. 12. Pray for God's will to be done in your life. We should not only be resigned to God's will, but actively and eagerly pray that His will come to pass in our life. But be careful. God delights in such prayers, and will grant them. Have faith that our Father knows best. Even when we cannot see beyond the difficulty of the moment.
  13. 13. God calls us to personal holiness. He calls us to serve Him with utmost dedication and commitment. We can move on in these areas as we more and more focus on the Lord and our life and mission in Him. Let us be single-minded for God.
  14. 14. Thoughts to Ponder Do you spend time each week, perhaps each day, intentionally tuning yourself to God? Do you nurture a passion to see Him glorified in your family, relationships and work, regardless of your vocation? Are you really practicing the Sabbath and building margin into your life?
