. . . he departed from them and withdrew the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. (Acts 19:9)

There comes a time when you have to stop doing ministry in the same way. The programs that worked yesterday often are outdated today. And when those programs, ministries, and auxiliaries have outlived their usefulness, we should eulogize them and then deposit their remains deep in the ground. Today we have every conceivable mechanism to convey the message of the Lord Jesus Christ—e-mail, blogs, YouTube, Facebook, text messaging—you name it. You change strategies when you have to change. Be courageous enough to decisively and creatively change strategies when the present one stops working.

Fix your focus on Jesus and live your life looking up!

There’s something in the human heart that longs to go higher and higher. Down times may come but our desire is always to be on our way up. Have you ever wondered why?

It’s because you’re made in God’s image. You’re designed to live looking up, focused on Jesus. That’s how you really live life to the fullest!
