One Thing sermon video. The rich young ruler wanted to achieve something special. Jesus said there was One Thing stopping him from achieving it. The man needed to sell out to everything and simplify by focusing on ONE THING. If he would, he could achieve his life’s goal. The Bible says he did not do it and went away sad. ONE THING can stop you from having a great life a success.

We want to provide for you a GREAT church. I have asked some of the leadership to read a bestseller book titled Good To Great by Jim Collins. It is not what you may call a “spiritual” book. It is actually about why most companies remain “good,” while a few companies become “great.” In the book, Collins uses the truth from an essay by Isaiah Berlin called “The Hedgehog and the Fox.” Berlin divides people into two groups – Hedgehogs and Foxes. A fox is a sleek, complicated, high-strung, easily distracted creature running all over the woods trying to figure out what it will do and where it will go. One thing the fox tries to figure out is how it can eat the hedgehog. The hedgehog, on the other hand, is a very simple little creature looking like a mix between a porcupine and small armadillo. The hedgehog simplifies life and reduces it down to only what is relevant. When attacked by the fox, it simply rolls up into a ball of sharp spikes and never loses to the fox. Collins quoting Berlin says, “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.” The point Collins makes in Good To Great is this: knowing the right ONE BIG THING is better than knowing many things. Companies going from good to great actually simplified life and rolled it all up into ONE THING.
