“YOU NEED A LIFE COACH!”
A personalized helper who will Partner with you in designing your future.
A Powerful, Authentic, Caring, Teacher who you can enter confidently into a PACT with.
Dr. Ed Young described “The Perfect Coach” as one who would have knowledge of life even before the dawn of time. Someone who lived in history. Someone who not only has knowledge of the past, present and future- but also has an Eternal Infinite Perspective.
Dr. Young referred to Mark 10:17-31 The rich man who had everything but eternal life. The man saw Jesus as not only a teacher but “Good”. In v.18 Jesus asked him if he recognized Him as Divine. He must have realized what Jesus had that he did not posses. v.19 “You know the Commandments.” The man was sure he had kept the six commandments Jesus had mentioned. But he was unable to keep the very first command “You shall have no other gods before Me”.
God insists that if we are to be on His Team we must be totally committed. We must have Potential (once indwelt we have potential). We must have a Passion for God’s Team. We must be Coach-able and Teachable .
Mark10:21 Looking at him, JESUS FELT A LOVE FOR HIM… I don,t remember noticing those words from Our Lord before. They swell my heart and bring tears to my eyes. I can only imagine how hard it must of been for that man to have walked away from what Jesus offers us.
v.22 But at these words he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property. Dr. Young said the word for grieving is a word likened to extreme pain such as the pain of childbirth. For me I am reminded of the anguish of loosing my husband.
It takes a lot of time to take care of my stuff. Is it a priority over my time with God? I feel so blessed, is my perspective an Eternal one. Will I fit threw the eye of the needle. YES! v.27 Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.” In v.33 Jesus tells them about what is to happen once they reach Jerusalem. There lies our salvation. NASB Bible used
