Success In God's Kingdom

The standard for success in life as measured by God is substantially different than the success measured by the world. The world’s measure of success is the amount of wealth and possessions we have stored up here. I am saddened by the quest of present day Christianity’s identification with the world’s standard of success.


Stand For Truth

“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be instant in season and out of season. Reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers: and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:1-4.


Run To Win

Hebrews 12:1-2 “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God,” The writer of Hebrews reminds us that those that preceded us in the Old Testament as examples of faith, were really not special people, but people that trusted a special God.


No Compromise

“Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven.” Psalm 119:89. God’s word is settled forever! He is not confused about His word nor His willingness and faithfulness to back up His word. It is now up to the church, Christians, to settle God’s word here on the earth, in their hearts. People need to understand that the trials and tribulations of life are sent to make us question God’s word and His faithfulness to back up His word. They are sent to prove our faith.
