What Will You Do?

Genesis 4:26

And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.

What Will You Do?

This verse closes the discussion of Adam and Eve. They had troubles among their sons, to say the least. One killed the other over jealousy. He did this in the very presence of God. Cain was jealous that God accepted Abel's offering and not his. He was jealous that his brother's worship was more pure, genuine than his so he made it Abel's problem.

Eve had a third son and called him Seth. His name literally means compensation. She felt he was compensation from God for the loss of Abel. He must have accepted the pressure of his name because Seth became the first in a long line of men who 'began to call upon the name of the Lord.'

So, events were set for a long line of men of God to worship Him, obey Him, ignore Him, dispute Him, praise Him, hate Him and do everything to Him that they do to the other people around them.

Some obeyed despite their nature. Some sang and became warriors. Some were blinded to see God. Some ruled. Some served. Some cried. Some danced right out of their clothes. Some paid for their disobedience with their lives. Some hid in rocks and caves. Some stood on mountain tops and in the streets proclaiming the Word of the Lord.

However, the question remains, what will you do?

Gentlemen, we are having a men's conference at Fellowship. There will be three services, this Thursday and Friday nights at 7 and Saturday at 1 PM. Women are welcome to join on Saturday, but on those nights, gents, what will you do? What will you do when the offer is made for you to come together with other men who 'call upon the name of the Lord' in order to find out what real manhood in Christ looks like; feels like; walks like; talks like? Will you accept the challenge to grow, or will you let this one get by?

I pray that you will join my brothers from Fellowship as well as men of God from other ministries all over Atlanta. The theme this year is 'Our Time, Our Season'.

Solomon couldn't do what David did. It wasn't his season. Paul couldn't do what Moses did. It wasn't his time. I can't do what YOU have been called to do. But, in Christ, your time and your season can come to fruition.

Its your time. Use it well.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-15

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?

10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
What will you do?
