You’re not meant to do this journey alone.

Ecc 4:8  Here is one alone–no one with him; he neither has child nor brother. Yet there is no end to all his labor, neither is his eye satisfied with riches, neither does he ask, For whom do I labor and deprive myself of good? This is also vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility); yes, it is a painful effort and an unhappy business. [Prov. 27:20; I John 2:16.]

Ecc 4:9  Two are better than one, because they have a good [more satisfying] reward for their labor;

Ecc 4:10  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!

Ecc 4:11  Again, if two lie down together, then they have warmth; but how can one be warm alone?

Ecc 4:12  And though a man might prevail against him who is alone, two will withstand him. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.

KEY QUESTION – WHO IS DOING THE JOURNEY WITH YOU?

 Adam – Your help meet

Gen_2:18  Now the Lord God said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him.

Moses – Jethro

Exo_18:14  When Moses’ father-in-law saw all that he was doing for the people, he said, What is this that you do for the people? Why do you sit alone, and all the people stand around you from morning till evening?

KEY QUESTION – ROSS’S KEY QUESTION: “WHO IS GOING TO HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE?”

Paul – Barnabas

Act_4:36  Now Joseph, a Levite and native of Cyprus who was surnamed Barnabas by the apostles, which interpreted means Son of Encouragement,

Act 9:26  And when he had arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to associate himself with the disciples; but they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe he really was a disciple.

Act 9:27  However, Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles, and he explained to them how along the way he had seen the Lord, Who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached freely and confidently and courageously in the name of Jesus.

Act 9:28  So he went in and out [as one] among them at Jerusalem,

Act_11:30  And so they did, sending [their contributions] to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.

Act_13:9  But Saul, who is also called Paul, filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit, looked steadily at [Elymas]

Act_13:43  And when the congregation of the synagogue dispersed, many of the Jews and the devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked to them and urged them to continue [to trust themselves to and to stand fast] in the grace (the unmerited favor and blessing) of God.

Paul and Titus A GREEK

2Co_7:6  But God, Who comforts and encourages and refreshes and cheers the depressed and the sinking, comforted and encouraged and refreshed and cheered us by the arrival of Titus.  – REFRESH YOUR SPIRIT

2Co_8:16  But thanks be to God Who planted the same earnest zeal and care for you in the heart of Titus.  – SAME HEART

2Co 8:23  As for Titus, he is my colleague and shares my work in your service; and as for the [other two] brethren, they are the [special] messengers of the churches, a credit and glory to Christ (the Messiah).  – SHARES YOUR WORK

KEY QUESTION – DID YOU KNOW THAT CHANGING THINKING CAN BE THE HARDEST THING TO DO?

My Coaches:

Graham Hill – I learned who I was and how to balance my ministry life and family life

Gary Hourigan – I learned how to manage my time weel and assess all the parts of church life that need to attended to.

David Schaeffer – I learned ho to raise leaders and build a leadership empowering environment

Peter Pilt – called me out on the hard questions and made me face what I believe about faith and the big questions.

KEY QUESTION? – WHO IS THE PERSON WHO WANTS YOU TO WIN UNCONDITIONALLY?

Pro 27:17  Just as iron sharpens iron, friends sharpen the minds of each other. (CEV)

If your motto is me and God – we can do it. Maybe you need to rethink that one.

Pro 18:1  HE WHO wilfully separates and estranges himself seeks his own desire and pretext to break out against all wise and sound judgment.
