Goals Setting Your Life Goals sermon series video audio notes

Setting, establishing, and achieving goals for our lives is the difference between success and failure. We will never experience the God-given potential inside without goals. Jesus had distinct and specific goals. The Apostle Paul likely had a day planner. Goals in our lives push us through difficult “cross” times keeping us focused on what is truly important.

Jesus set a goal. He didn’t view Jerusalem as the place he would be betrayed, arrested, mocked, abused, scourged, executed, buried, or even resurrected. Jerusalem was the place for him to be taken up to heaven. It was the place he would complete his life’s goal. So, today and perhaps for a few weeks, I want to talk about our setting life’s goals.

All successful people are goal oriented. The ability to set goals is the master skill of success. Jesus shows us how to accomplish great things in life though faced with the most difficult of situations. No one was more successful than Jesus Christ. Jesus set resolute goals.

“Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.” The word resolutely is sterizo {stay-rid’-zo} – to make stable, place firmly, set fast, fix; to render constant, confirm one’s mind. Jesus set this purpose deep in his mind. He stabilized the goal. He set and fixed the goal firmly. Jesus rendered his mind. In computer science, render deals with converting graphics into video. Jesus constantly rendered, or imagined, as he played the video in his mind. A jury will render a verdict after seeing and hearing all the evidence giving them a mental vision of what took place. In cooking, render is to convert, or melt down. In music, render is to play out a musical piece. In acting, render is to act out the scene. The point I want us to see is Jesus worked his goal deep into his own mind by rendering – acting out, melting down, arranging, graphically seeing, and assimilating the evidence. However, what he focused upon was not the betrayal, arrest, trial, scourging, crucifixion, or the resurrection. All those were processes to get to his goal. The goal was to be taken up to heaven.
