Are You Focused on Biblical Success?

Biblical Success

Take a few minutes to stop and look around at the world we live in today.  In doing this, you will see that there is no shortage of images that define success for us.  Regardless of the category you choose, the world peppers you with its own definition of success.  The problem is that Christians should be seeking a different kind of “success” altogether.  So what IS it we should seek?  How is Biblical success defined for us?

You Have A Unique Advantage Over Your Pastor’s Influence!

Influence for eternity

Before I even get started on this topic, I want to make it clear that I love and respect my pastor.  This article is not about him (or your pastor).  Being a pastor is an extremely tough job and I could not do it.  However, I believe you and I have a distinct advantage over them.  This advantage, if leveraged consistently over time, can allow us to have an even greater impact for eternity!

In my last three posts, I focused on a five-question decision making process. At the very outset of the decision making series, I explained my belief that any decision made from anything but an eternal perspective fails to honor God.

After all of the anticipation, fear, and celebration, it has finally arrived: the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. Whatever position you have taken during the campaign and since the election, this day is a significant one for many reasons. While it would be easy to get down into the mud and argue about whether this is the right man for the job, I want to take a different approach and discuss the actual transfer of power.
