If… Part 3

Even though the English often reads if, a first class conditional sentence structure in the Greek language demands greater certainty, since.

Transferring this into areas of leadership carries an interesting thought.

Since we influence a minimum of four people a day, we should study greater levels of leadership and the opportunity to make a greater difference.

Since we work to help souls get to heaven, we should prepare ourselves with a greater understanding of God’s word.

A number of areas could be considered, but the idea is the same. Let us lead with the certainty needed to make the future of the church stronger.

If… Part 2

We left off yesterday with this question: “What would we do if we knew we could not fail?

Would we talk to the neighbor across the street if we could not fail?

Would we set greater goals for reaching the lost of our state or country if we could not fail?

Would our approach to world missions take on loftier efforts if we could not fail?

We cannot fail! The Bible reminds us that not one of God’s good promises ever failed. 

He has promised to be with us and never forsake us, to listen to us and counsel us, and to give the increase.

Why are we waiting?

If…

Think about the various ways we use the word “if.”

If we could only win a game.
If I had a dime for every time I heard someone say…
If you do that one more time I am going to…
If I hear this again I will go crazy.
If archaeologists could find (pick out a Biblical artifact) I would believe.

We often use this word in a conditional sense.

Consider the significance of this word in a question: “What would we do if we knew we could not fail?”

Think about it and we will look at more tomorrow.
