"Live a life that shows the Lord you are the one" by: Caleb Gibson

      High Five Church has partnered up with Discover Life and we are having LIT Nights the last Sunday night of every month for Junior High and High School students. 
   It starts at 5 p.m. at Discover Life Church. At one of our leadership meetings, Pastor Jonathon Salas gave a great example; he said, “We need to have the ‘I’m the one’ attitude.” 
   What does this mean? Is there a spill on the floor? 
   I’m the one to clean it. Is there someone standing away from the group, disinterested in what is going on? 
   I’m the one to go and encourage him. Is there someone struggling to carry an ice chest? 
   I’m the one to help them. When we have this attitude God is happy. It’s the same mindset that set Jesus apart from everyone around Him. Jesus served one person at a time. 
   2 Chronicles16:9 tells us, “For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. 
   “You have acted foolishly in this. Indeed, from now on you will surely have wars.” 
   This verse tells us how God is looking for someone to be used for His kingdom. 
   He is not looking for simple behavior modification, He is after someone who has had a heart transformation. 
   D.L. Moody is one of the great preachers of the 1800s. Throughout his life he made a huge impact on many people’s lives. 
   He was like the Billy Graham of his day. 
   He opened up universities still open today. Along Moody’s path there were many people who made an impact into his personal journey with God. 
   One day, Moody was sitting with his friend Harvey, a British revivalist, recounting a private conversation a year ago. 
   Although Harvey did not remember saying these exact words, Moody explained that this was what God had spoken through him. 
   He recalls him saying, “Moody, the world has yet to see what God will do with a man fully consecrated to him!” 
   Dwight made a decision in his heart when he heard those words that, “By the grace of God, I am that man.” 
   Dwight went on to reach millions with the gospel of Christ. All of this happened because one man said, “God don’t look any further, I’ll be your voice.” 
   Have the, “I’m the one” attitude. 
   Remind yourself that, “I am the one God Loves! I am the one God has Forgiven! 
   And I am the one Jesus died for!” 
   Live a life that is, “LIT!” Live your life being a light to this world. Spread the good news! 
   There is purpose in your life!
