DRESS FOR SUCCESS

 

 

Romans 13:14

“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,

and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.”

The world has a standard for success: fame and fortune.

The business world has a standard of dressing for success.

Gods standard is clearly shown:

This is God’s formula for success!

Ephesians 6:13-18

 Wherefore take unto you the

WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD,

that ye may be able to

WITHSTAND

in the evil day,

and having done all, to stand.

 STAND THEREFORE,

having your loins girt about with

TRUTH,

and having on the

BREASTPLATE of RIGHTEOUSNESS;

And your feet shod with the preparation of the

GOSPEL of PEACE;

 Above all, taking the

SHIELD of FAITH,

wherewith

ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

 And take the

HELMET of SALVATION

and the

SWORD of the SPIRIT

which is

THE WORD OF GOD:

PRAYING ALWAYS

with

ALL PRAYER

and

SUPPLICATION IN THE SPIRIT

and

WATCHING

thereunto with

ALL PERSEVERANCE

and

SUPPLICATION FOR ALL SAINTS!

Dan Crawford (1870-1926) spent most of his adult life

serving as a missionary in Africa.

When it was time to return home to Britain,

 

image

Crawford described to an old Bantu

the kind of world he was about to return to.

He told him about ships that ran under the water,

on the water, and even those that flew above the water.

He described English houses with all of their conveniences,

such as running water and electric lights.

Then Crawford waited for the old African

to register his amazement.

“Is that all, Mr. Crawford?” the aged man asked.

“Yes, I think it is,” Crawford replied.

Very slowly and very gravely, the old Bantu said,

“Well, Mr. Crawford, you know,

that to be better off is not to be better.”

Deuteronomy 30:19-20

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,

that I have set before you life and death,

blessing and cursing:

therefore

CHOOSE LIFE,

that both thou and thy seed may live:

That thou mayest love the Lord thy God,

and that thou mayest obey His voice,

and that thou mayest cleave unto Him:

for

HE IS THY LIFE,

and the

LENGTH OF THY DAYS!

GOD’S WONDERFUL PLAN OF SALVATION

Acts 16:30-31

”Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

And they said,

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,

and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

Romans 10:8-13

But what saith it?

The word is nigh thee,

even in thy mouth,

and in thy heart:

that is,

the word of faith, which we preach;

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised Him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto

righteousness;

and with the mouth confession is made unto

salvation.

For the scripture saith,

Whosoever

believeth on Him

shall not be ashamed.

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek:

for the same Lord over

ALL

is rich unto

ALL

that call upon Him.

For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the Lord

SHALL BE SAVED.

The plan of salvation is simple.

Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ,

died for your sins and rose again from the dead.

Ask Him to forgive you of your sins.

Invite Him into your heart to be the Savior of your soul.

When you’re crying yourself to sleep,

know that Jesus is lending His shoulder to you.

When you’re pushed to the ground,

know that Jesus is holding out His hands to you.

When you feel like dying,

know that Jesus died to let you live.

When you feel like no one loves you,

know that Jesus loves you more than you can imagine.
