How God Defines Success
Pastor Terry Wilcox
God’s faithfulness is well-established! But what of our faithfulness to him?
The first emphasis is God’s amazing grace to Moses and the Israelites.
The second emphasis is that we cannot be complacent or casual about God’s grace.
Moses was not to do, he was to say.
God obviously places a premium on faithfulness.
I Corinthians 4:1-2
I am not equating their missing the promised land to missing heaven.
Proverbs 3:6 in Living Bible – “In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.”
THREE REQUIREMENTS FOR KINGDOM SUCCESS
- Obedience to God’s directions.
- You can’t obey God’s directions if you don’t read them.
Illustration: the parable of the talents – Matthew 25
Knowing, obeying, and doing God’s will changes our outcomes now and for eternity.
