Stay in Your Lane

October 4, 2014

The past few days I’ve been blogging from Atlanta, Georgia at the Catalyst 2014 Conference. The conference has finished, but with so much truth to chew on we need¬†time to process it all.

Every year Catalyst introduces me to a speaker which I have not previously heard, but gives a message which resonates with my heart. This year that speaker was Robert Madu. His message has been churning in my heart ever since.

Robert is the Evangelist and Teaching Pastor from Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas. He spoke out of the following two passages:

Hebrews 12:1-2 – God has set a race before each and everyone one of us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus who initiates and perfects our faith.
1 Samuel 18:5-9 – Saul became jealous of David based on a comparison made between them. He took his eyes off of his own race.

I am blogging from Atlanta, Georgia at the Catalyst 2014 Conference. I have been asked to serve as a part of the Blogger Team at Catalyst!

Reggie Joiner is sharing in the opening session of the LABS day.

If we only have so many years left, what do I want to invest my time in? Reggie shared about having two of his daughters get married in last few months which caused him to reflect on what is important.

What he wants his kids to know:
– You can know God
– Understand what it means to become a Christian in a moment
– Bible is all true
– Trust leads to stronger faith
– You should enjoy going to church
– Your beliefs matter
– God has an ideal for your life. The closer you move towards this the sweeter your life will be.
– God is Good
