Speaker 1:                           00:00                     You have an amazing conference that is going to impact so many people’s lives. But now we got to get people there. So in this lesson today, I want to talk about an answer. This question, can I talk about the numbers? For whatever reason, uh, when I was on campus and we were sharing with student leaders about how many people had signed up, almost every single time somebody would have some pushback. Like, why are you guys always talking about the numbers? So have you guys felt that? Have you ever felt like, man, you know, I feel kind of funny talking about the numbers. Other people are wondering why we talk about the numbers. So here’s the answer to this question. Can I talk about the numbers? Yes. Not only can you talk about the numbers, I think that you definitely should talk about the numbers. It’s an amazing opportunity because we count people because people count.

Men want to stop looking at porn, or overcoming porn or masturbation, because they know that looking at porn and mastrubating  can be a bad habit. They things like joining the no fap movement (nofap), covenant eyes, xxx church (xxxchurch), the freedom fight, pure desire, 7 pillars,  the conquer series, the endurance, 30 day challenge, fight the new drug, or a counselor. Sometimes these help guys with purity but sometimes it does not.

Speaker 1:                           01:02                     Rick Warren said that quote a long time ago and it has stuck with me. Uh, the reason that we talk about that there’s a hundred people signed up or 200 people signed up is because behind every one of those numbers, as an individual with a mom and a dad, uh, that was created by God with a life purpose. And so we get excited about every single person, uh, that is signed up for our conference, um, because we care about each person individually. And so you see this in the scriptures, uh, Jesus talks about how he left the 99 to go after the one, uh, you saw how he at the sermon on the Mount that uh, or excuse me, when they were feeding the 5,000, it’s like, well, how’d they know they fed 5,000? Well, they, they must’ve counted them because all of those people counted. So it really is an amazing opportunity.

Speaker 1:                           01:55                     So I would say for those of you who feel funny about talking about the numbers, definitely talk about the numbers. Those of you who have no problem talking about the numbers. Um, w I think that every time you do talk about the numbers, you need to make sure you explain why. So every time that we did, we would talk about at our leadership meeting, you know, we just had a 150 sign up or we had 50 sign up or we had 10 sign up. I would use that as an opportunity to share, um, why we talk about the numbers and why are we count people and because we care about them because God cares about them. Uh, so I don’t wait until someone says, wait, why are you guys counting? Man? I just know that they’re already thinking it. And so I proactively use it as an opportunity to talk about how much, how much we love every single person. So, uh, I hope you guys can use this tip and I hope, uh, that by talking about the numbers, you guys are able to increase your numbers. So leave any comments or thoughts that you have below.

If any guy is interested in stopping porn or masturbating they should get some help.  They can look at the no fap movement ( nofap ), covenant eyes, xxx church (xxxchurch), the freedom fight, pure desire, 7 pillars,  the conquer series, and fight the new drug or try to see a counselor. The Endurance would love to help guys. A great start to overcoming porn and masturbation is to take the 30 day challenge.  Go to theendurance.org/30daychallenge to take it.
