LLLV19 9-9-2019 Jack Dempsey on Getting up When you Can’t
Reaching Raising Restoring. Each word has special meaning:
Reaching means reach lost people, those who have not proclaimed faith in Jesus Christ.
Raising reminds us that many people who are professing faith in Jesus Christ seem to forget who they are in Christ. Paul tells us via faith in Jesus; we are raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
Restoring is the ministry process of helping people back to fellowship with the Lord. The word restore to bring back to original beauty and function!
When Jack Dempsey was knocked down, he got up and became the most outstanding boxer of his time. He admitted that sometimes when knocked down, there was no way he could get up, but he got up anyway! Jack said:
“A champion is someone who gets up when he can't.” Jesus will help you up! Remember these three words, Reaching,Raising, and Restoring. Larry Lilly.
