A BOAT FULL OF SUCCESS
What you do with your empty nets is the deciding factor between failure and success.
(Luke 5: 1-11)
A Boat Full of Success will Support your Continual Pursuit of God’s Purpose. Within the pages of Scripture, we find God's Blueprint Concerning His Purpose for Your Life. He has laid out the concepts, principles, and road map that will inspire each of us to look for and discover His Will for our lives. Taking this path will lead to a successful and rewarding experience.
All of us understand the concept of a pattern or blueprint. The tailor who designed the clothes you're wearing had to follow a model, or the clothing would not fit. A building would not be safe, nor would an engine run, if not made according to the blueprint. Likewise, the Word of God is Jesus, the author, and finisher of our faith. Who better to teach us all things, but He that authored the book?
It is the same thing with our life in Christ. We must start right, continue right, and finish the race set before us according to God's blueprint. The Bible's patterns for life are not merely religious rules; they're proper rules. That is, they're patterns that work so we can live, obey, and grow in the way God designed us to live.
His commandments and precepts supply the foundation to build lives that stand strong and tall. Spiritual frames built on His solid rock. All designed to make us into the image of Christ. This pattern for godliness produces a character that leads to making the decisions in Christ that will create the future God desires for you.
As you understand His interest in your success, you will be able to contribute to that success with wisdom. God is interested in your success and has promised to guide you as you add to His Kingdom. As you invest the time to study God's Eternal Word, you will discover and develop the Image of Christ as it reflects upon your earthly and eternal existence in Him.
