  1. And we're being called upon to walk worthy
  2. of the calling that God has called us to.
  3. This is the question!
  4. Are you decided to succeed?
  5. And it doesn't start right now.
  6. Are you decided to take the message
  7. you heard in the first hour
  8. and say you know what?
  9. That convicts me, but I don't want to
  10. just go out here convicted,
  11. I want to go out of here changed.
  12. My wife doesn't really know this happened,
  13. but a couple weeks back
  14. I'm driving down Commerce Street.
  15. And I'm coming up on a street light
  16. and I've got a green light.
  17. And the guy comes up the other way
  18. and he makes a right on red,
  19. but I don't think he even stopped.
  20. He just kind of went through it,
  21. and I was really close to him.
  22. And you know, I didn't over-break.
  23. I just kind of flew up
    real close behind him.
  24. And my wife said something
  25. about just doing that
    because you're trying
  26. to punish the guy.
  27. I mean, she was mildly rebuking me.
  28. And I thought, well, that's
    exact what I'm doing.
  29. And I thought I am not going
    to do that any more.
  30. There have been various times
  31. my wife has said you know
    this is what you're doing,
  32. and I've said like when she's not looking
  33. I turn to the Lord and I say,
  34. Lord, that was exactly what I was doing
  35. and I don't want to do that any more.
  36. But I hope you're like that.
  37. That's the way we've got
    to approach Scripture
  38. where it's like something
    is pointed out to us
  39. and it's like yes, I'm going
    to put forth an effort.
  40. This may not happen perfectly,
  41. but I'm going to draw a line in the sand.
  42. It's like I'm not going there any more.
  43. And if I find myself there,
  44. I'm going to repent just like that.
  45. I'm going to back off of that.
  46. Are you decided to succeed?
  47. And like I say, it takes being honest.
  48. You've got to be dead honest.
  49. James could sit here and tell you
  50. this convicted me.
  51. Yeah, and I was squirming over there too.
  52. And I can tell when my wife -
  53. she's nodding and I'm thinking, yeah,
  54. she's thinking about me.
  55. But if we don't admit where we fail,
  56. you're not going to do well.
  57. We've got to be honest -
  58. honest with the Lord,
    honest with each other.
  59. Because look, we're all in the same boat.
  60. We all are.
  61. We're a people that need to be saved.
  62. We need the grace of God.
    We need the help of God.
  63. We need the power of God.
  64. This except was taken from the full sermon
  65. "Worthy of God's Calling."
