- What does the Bible tell us about success?
Joshua 1:7 “Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.”
According to the book of Joshua: success comes from learning and doing the word of God.
Because of Jesus, we have new rules to live.
“12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. 13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present ourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.”
Old testament: Enjoy today for tomorrow we die.
New testament: Do God’s work, for tomorrow we live!
- If you knew you were going to die, what would you change?
Psalm 1 : In all that he does, he prospers.
Jesus saves us by giving us life when we deserve death.
Verse 5: “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.”
1: Live intentionally.
2: Do everything for God.
3: Stop living in the past.
4: Do whatever you do with joy.
