The definition of SUCCESS can be found in the Bible. It is rather unfortunate that the entire public now refer to success as the possession of material things such as money, cars,houses, etc. As Christians we have a measure of success and this can be found in Ephesians 4:13…”till we all come to the unity f the faith and of the knowledge of the son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”. A successful Christian is one who can compare himself to the fullness of Christ.
Rules For Success
- Read the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12)
- Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
- Fast and Pray (1 Corinthians 7:5)
- Be a soul winner (Proverbs 11:30)
- Hear and Obey the voice of God (1 Samuel 3:10)
- Know your purpose on earth (Romans 8:28)
- Renew your mind and be Spirit-led (Romans 12:2)
- Do the will of God (2 Corinthians 8:5)
- Abstain from sin and be Holy (1 Thessalonians 5:22-23)
- Give to the poor and needy (Hebrews 13:16)
Beloved, these things if we do would make us get to the measure and stature of Christ. Then we can say that we are successful. God Bless You.
Mindset is a set of assumptions, methods, or notions held by one or more people or a group of people that is so established that, it creates a powerful incentive within these people or groups to continue to adopt or accept prior behaviors or choices.
Ones mindset can determine how he speaks, how he lives day to day and more importantly, where God stands in relationship with oneself.
As Christians, we need a particular mindset that would keep our faith in Christ moving. Christ who is our example as Christians, had a positive and renewed mindset (Philippians 2:5). This should encourage us to have a positive mindset in whatever we do.
Ones mindset can cause a weak or strong faith in Christ. That is why the bible admonished us in Romans 12:2 to be transformed by the renewing of our mind before we can be able to prove what is good and the acceptable perfect will of God.
Lets rise up and seek to renew our minds for the good of ourselves and the kingdom. God Bless You.
Not long ago, I saw a group of old men with pot bellies having a foot training around. Just after they where all done, I saw one of them seriously still working out. I quickly received an inspiration from that.
There are two kinds of Christians; those that have a personal relationship with God and those who do not. Those who do not are the ones who just go to church and think its enough for them and they can be likened to the men who stopped working out. The one who continued is the type of Christian who has a very strong personal relationship with God.
This is the kind of Christian God wants us to be, not just church goers but Believers who would have constant relationship with Him.
Lets desire to go far with God and He would also go far with us. God bless you.
Christ has given every Christian who has accepted Him the power to preach His good Gospel, yet still people do not want to share this Good news. These are the three reasons why people do not share the Gospel of Christ.
- Lack of scriptural understanding
- Absence of Love. Watch out for more.
