How to be successful in God's eyes

How can a person be successful? Notice this passage: "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon Earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal" (Matthew 6:19-20).

Learn to serve each other in humility

"….whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave- just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Matthew 20:26-28 (NIV)

We need an 'even if' faith

For almost 31 years, I have preached and taught the truths of the Bible. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart…," "We walk by faith, not by sight…," and so on. I have emphasized that God can be trusted, no matter the circumstances, and have done so with conviction.

Are you eligible for a miracle?

In the book of Acts 2:22, it speaks of Jesus as "a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him." All through the gospels we see where miracle working was part of Jesus's every day activities.
