Just do it…but what?

Once again the national conversation is swirling about racism, profiling, protests, platforms, and more. People are choosing sides, hurling accusations, and getting very vocal about their beliefs, their rights, and their positions. This time it’s sparked by a short corporate slogan, “Just Do It.” Do what?

Clearly the corporate giant (Nike) behind this campaign has in mind “doing” some kind of athletic endeavor. But their slogan has developed a broader audience. People want to get on with life. They want to accomplish something. They want to persevere in adversity. They want to do SOMETHING.

It’s interesting to note that God is the “just do it” God. He’s not content to talk about, to debate, to analyze, and to procrastinate. He’s the God who just DOES it. He creates. He sustains. He intervenes. He gives. He redeems. He calls. He leads. He acts. In short, he “just does it.”

Along the way, he calls his people to action as well. Follow. Love. Give. Surrender. Forgive. Serve.

What is he calling you do to? What is the “next step” in your life? Maybe you’ve got a clear idea and you’re already “doing it.” Maybe you know, but you’re hesitating. Maybe you’re not even sure what those next steps are.

At Seneca Creek, we’re committed to helping you take those next steps.

  • Sometimes it involves figuring out WHAT that next step is. A great place to start is Rooted.
  • Sometimes it involves helping you TAKE that courageous next step. It could be serving, or forgiving, or healing, or leading, or growing, etc. See weekly teaching and serving opportunities.
  • Sometimes it involves encouraging you to stay on course, even when it’s hard. Jesus doesn’t call us to the comfort zone, but the construction zone (see message from August 12th).

God is a God who “just does it.” His people are called to “just do it.”

What is it he’s calling you do to next? What is the next step for you? What’s preventing you from just doing it?

-Pastor Mark

  1. This is a very confusing issue my parents raised my sisters and myself to honor the American flag and a great honor behind it. We all also learned about the world history over the last 100 years or so with so many Horrid atrocities the world had to face such as racism or worse.
    This leaves me with a very large question why is it that over 100 years or more we still haven’t learned The difference between the Comfort zone, with some of the challenges that are there, and the Benefits Blessings and more of construction zone, where one Needs to be!
    For God loves all of his children all over the entire world Where ever they may be in the past through the present and into the future.
    18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord. Leviticus 19:18 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
