What’s Holding You Back?

In Mark 10, a young wealthy man came to Jesus to ask about eternal life. Jesus said to him “One thing you lack, Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” The Bible says “At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.”

The point of the story isn’t that you can’t be rich and go to heaven. The point is that you have to let go of EVERYTHING to follow Jesus and find eternal life.

What are you holding on to? Is it money? It’s great to have money, and even to have lots of it. But if you haven’t RELEASED it to him, it’s holding you back. Other things that can hold us back are pride, popularity, greed, sexual sin, materialism, anger, and ANYTHING that God would want you to release.

What’s holding you back? Let it go today!

Session 6 – Questions – Ed Young – Pastor of Fellowship Church in Grapevine, TX

Great leaders always ask questions! It’s about a quest, a journey, always seeking knowledge. But so few people ever ask questions.

Ask the right people the right questions to get the right answers.

What keeps us from asking questions:

Pride – it’s all about me… The ride of pride. I’m not going to lower myself to ask that question.

Are you asking questions? There are thousands of questions in the Bible. Where are you? Who do people say I am?

Who are the right people to ask?
1) God – what about my Master? My mate? My mission? Bow your knee to Jesus. He can answer more for you than anyone. Are you doing what you are called to do?

2) Others – who is your ‘they?’ We have to have the right ‘they’ to ask?

T- tough
H- honesty
E- encouraging – people who are around you should be happy about life
Y- yielded to God and with you

3 kinds of people:
People who are with you
People who are for you
People who will betray you

HNL – Hole nutha level – bring a hole nutha devil

You got to have the right people around you

3) Yourself – ask yourself questions. Why am I making this decision? Thinking about the past, present, and future is this the best call for me?

What are the right questions?

1) Can I get confirmation of something I think maybe I should do?

2) Is there something I can copy, then make better?

3) What do I need to cancel?

4) What do I need to create?

Great talk!
