Revelation calls for action, therefore “BE INTENTIONAL”.
As a young child, I remember my parents allowing me to call the Jerry Lewis telethon as he raised money for muscular dystrophy. Watching the television and seeing the need to help people, moved me to action. My parents instilled in me the importance of helping people but also the principle to "do something about it if you can". Making the phone call and pledge that day is something I'll never forget.
God speaks to man through special revelation, the Bible, and general revelation, creation. When He does, we have the opportunity to act or let the moment pass by. That day many years ago, God revealed a need to me through His creation, and I acted. I wish I could say I was quickly obedient at all times. I wish I could say that I suppressed my natural man tendencies and avoided acting ungodly at all times. Knowing the battle within me, I have to be sure that I intentionally look and listen for His revelation. This year’s video communicates the “intentions” of our athletic program and will be available for online viewing after our family event August 13th at 7pm.
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matthew 25:40 KJV)
What has the Lord revealed to you in our athletic program? Maybe we need more help at the gate or concession....maybe He’s calling you to join our godly coaches...become a team mom...purchase a piece of equipment...maybe we need someone who will truly devote themselves to fervent, intercessory prayer...? Whatever it is, be alert to listen and see what He might reveal to you this year...then “be intentional” to act!
I love you and love serving you in athletics!
