A quick glance at a listing of the highest grossing movies of all times will reveal they’re overwhelmingly from the action genre.
We like action stars who’re willing. . .despite the odds to take on the bad guys no matter how seemingly impossible. . .the challenge may seem.
If you want to go where the spiritual action is. . .you need to step outside your comfort zone. Here are seven things every action star should know.
First, taking action is your duty.
Ezra 10:4 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“Get up! It’s your duty to take action. We are with you, so be strong and take action.”
God didn’t create or call you to be a spiritual couch potato. . .he call you to be a doer of the Word.
Second, you’ll know what to do. . .if you know Him and His word.
Daniel 11:32 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“With flattery he will corrupt those who abandon the promise. But the people who know their God will be strong and take action.”
Ernest Hemingway said:
“Never mistake motion for action.”
Third, we’re to take action. . .not just talk about it.
1 John 3:18 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“Dear children, we must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words.”
Benjamin Franklin said:
“Well done is better than well said.”
Don’t talk about it. . .just do it.
Fourth, God sees the actions you take.
Proverbs 5:21 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“Each person’s ways are clearly seen by the Lord, and he surveys all his actions.”
Andrew Carnegie said:
“As I grow older I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.”
Fifth, inspect what you expect from yourself.
Galatians 6:4 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“Each of you must examine your own actions. Then you can be proud of your own accomplishments without comparing yourself to others.”
People may doubt or question what you say. . .but will believe what you do.
Sugar Ray Robinson said:
"To be a champion you have to believe in yourself when no one else will."
Sixth, taking action. . .is pleasing to God.
Philippians 2:13 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“It is God who produces in you the desires and actions that please him.”
When you do what God tells you to do. . .then on Judgment Day you’ll be singing “Oh, Happy Day” instead of “Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen.”
Seventh, taking action. . .brings rewards.
2 Chronicles 15:7 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“But you must remain strong and not become discouraged. Your actions will be rewarded.”
Jeremiah 17:10 in God’s WORD Translation says:
“I, the Lord, search minds and test hearts. I will reward each person for what he has done. I will reward him for the results of his actions.”
Mary Kay Ash, the founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics said:
“There are two things people want more than sex and money -- recognition and praise."
Lights! Camera! Action! It’s your time to step up and step out. . .into your future.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
