Today we wrap up the ON THE OUTS mini-series. We have learned to ...
own an OUTSIDE view born from inside strength
Unleash the OUTSTANDING parts of you
Try OUTSTRETCHING of your hand to another daily
Simply OUTSTRIP by taking the right road
To "outstrip" is to surpass or to go at a faster pace arriving ahead of another. It is not being favored to win, or able to win, but rather making wise decisions along the way to the goal. It is the "how we get there" that becomes the deciding factor... doing for the right reason. CLICK on the BEHIND THE BENCH tab above for amazing story and video.
"The lame man who keeps the right road outstrips the runner who takes a wrong one ... the more active and swift the latter is, the further he will go astray." Francis Bacon
Staying on the right road unleashes the power of God in our lives. He steadily moves us forward SIMPLY OUTSTRIPING the world as it spins out of control.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 2 Corinthians 4:7 NIV
As we depend upon the all-surpassing power of God, we will experience OUTSTANDING outcomes in our homes as well as on the courts, fields and arenas of athletics. Looking outside of ourselves with an OUTSTRETCHED hand and a right heart we will OUTSTRIP our spiritual opponents.
So go for it ... and be blessed as you live ON THE OUTS!
