Jesus did not save us to be mediocre. He saved us to impact our world.

We had a great time last night at our youth ministry for students 6th - 12th grade. We worshiped Jesus. We had a blast hanging out, and I did a message titled "Real World Rules". This is a message that I have spoken in one form or another, training Pastors, Youth Pastors, and Ministry Teams all over America. But I really wanted our students to realize that Jesus did not save them to be mediocre, he saved them to impact their world. So I spoke to them like leaders of their generation, knowing that they will rise to the level of expectation. 

Here are the points from the message titled "Real World Rules". Feel free to take them and train  teenagers and teams in your local setting. 

Rule #1
Your talent and $4 will get you a coffee at Starbucks.

Rule #2
You deserve nothing you earn everything.

Rule #3
Small is big. 

Rule #4
A servants heart will take you further then you ever dreamed.

Rule #5
Nothing is ever accomplished by just thinking. 

Rule #6
People don’t listen to what you say that listen to what you do. 

Rule #7
Life is all about people. You are in the people business. 

Rule #8
Pray or fail.
