One Life To Live

Listen to the Message
Philippians 3:7-14
This is not a mere dress rehearsal that we are experiencing today. 
We have a tendency to love, sometimes, as if today doesn’t count. 
The Bible teaches us the “Today Matters”.
The power of intentional living. 
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus. (Hebrews 12:2)
I’m talking about making the most of every single day. 
Carpe Diem - Sieze the Day
We have only one life to live. 
Living with a Make-the-most-of-this-day mentality. 
1. Put the Past Behind You. 
  • Why did I have to do that?
  • Why did that have to happen to me?
  • Back then....
  • The back-then mind set prevents us from recognizing he meaningfulness of today. 
  • It’s a once-again matter. 
  • “The starting team will go back into the field to begin the second half.”
  • The game is only half over. You belong on the field. 
  • Regardless of the past, you still have the rest of the game to play. 
2. Take the Road Before You. 
  • You belong on the playing field. 
  • This means that each day we need to ask ourselves, “What can I do today to make the most of today?”.
  • We do this in a daily basis. 
3. Aim For That Which Is Beyond You. 
  • He’s calling you to stretch. 
  • It may seem like an impossible reach ... but you keep reaching. 
  • You need to make it your daily resolve to reach for that which is beyond you. 
  • We can’t afford to go through life with a dress rehearsal mentality. 
  • You have one life to live and you can live it only one day at a time — today.
