I have found several podcasters that I enjoy listening to. I have come to enjoy listening to sermons by Andy Stanley (for those unaware, he is Charles Stanley’s son). He finished a sermon series on Discovering the Will of God that I really enjoyed and learned much.
The fourth and final sermon in this series dealt with vision and focus. He used a passage from Nehemiah 6 that was eye opening for me. From 6:3 “I am doing a good work and I cannot come down.” It reminds me of the Tyranny of the Urgent. It is sooo easy to get sidetracked that we forget the MAIN THING. I have to fight this battle all the time. You can download his podcasts at ITunes or from their web address here.
I am trying to put into practice what I learned from that sermon… “I am doing a good work…” Pray with me that I will remain focused to do those things God has called me to do and not get sidetracked.
