7 Reasons God Wants You To Be An Action Star

. .

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.
