STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL LIVING
We live in a culture that loves formulas for success in life. If we are to meet this culture where they are, why not give them steps to the fullness of life that God offers each of us through a personal relationship with God.
1. We Are Powerless:
Romans 7:18 I know nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.
2. An All Powerful God Exists
Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
3. Choose God’s Help
Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God -- which is your spiritual worship.
4. Take An Honest Look At Yourself
Lamentations 3:40 Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.
5. Specifically Identify The Root Of Your Sin
James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.
6. Know That God’s Help Hurts
James 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
