The Secret To Success [Sermon Note]
Pastor Lawrence

Lay out for yourself treasure in heaven, for where your treasure is, there your heart is
May God enlarge your heart.

The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray.
Jesus as God does not need to pray, but as Man, He is a house of prayer

Prayer must be underline foundation of our lives. Every good things in our life.
Prayer is trusting in God, not in ourselves
Prayers show our humility

Do you face challenges? As a christian, yes we do. So how do we live a christian life?
First and foremost, how does a Christian life look like?

The word of God has some extraordinary verses
A Christian life is a victorious one

1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Cor 2:14
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

Whoever believes in the Son of God is a overcomer
Our spiritual journey is meant to be a constant victory, joy and peace

It is also a delightful rest
As we walk out the victory in every area of our lives

We don’t like it and we don’t understand and we ask why
Today we are going to find out how

This is God’s plan for my life to walk in victory, but how do I do that?
Maybe is not how. Maybe is who?
How means there is something we need to do
Maybe is who we live this life

Romans 5:17
For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

Emphasise on the word “RECEIVED” Those who received!

2 things you need to receive
The abundance of grace
The gift of righteousness

When we receive these two gifts, we will reign in life!It is not us who reign. We reign in life THROUGH the One, Jesus Christ

The power of God unto salvation is for every area of your life!

The first thing we need to do is to understand that God wants us to reign in life. It is a victorious life
To reign means to have kingly rule
The salvation of God is complete in His entirety, is for every area of our lives!
How to reign if we are filled with envy and filled with pride?
God wants us to reign!

This victory cannot be achieved, this victory must be RECEIVED
Achieving indicate you doing.
If you understand this word, you will start to reign
It is by receiving. What you do is not actually doing anything. You are simply receiving

You need to receive the abundance of grace. It is not just grace though. You need to receive so much grace from God
Grace is the unmerited favour of God

The definition tells us we cannot earn it
It is free gift

It is the grace of God

The gospel of grace
The gospel of peace
The gospel of Christ

It is through Jesus’ finished work that we can receive the gospel

It is not because of anything from us.
God’s heart is to bless us and to overcome the weakness and bad temper

Holiness is a gift to man

If our focus is on who is right and wrong in relationship, it will never end
We need to walk in love

Instead of me trying to love, i tell the Lord, You are LOVE, and You are life, You and me are one.
You love my spouse in and true. I cannot.

Not achieving but receiving. No longer works, but by grace through faith.

You believe you are forgiven and you receive the second gift, the gift of righteousness
You are the righteousness of God in Christ

Man ought to rest. Under law man must work. Under grace, man must rest
Therefore there remain a rest

1 Cor 1:30-31
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.

He is your holiness. Every evil habit you will raised

Keep on receiving and not achieve. The key is to receive

Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of Christ
You must learn to listen to enjoy

Keep on hearing and hearing
It is Christ. It is like something happened

When you are been washed, you don’t know but you become stronger

In listening, receive the abundance of grace
Jesus is the way the truth and the life

Every situation, trust in Him
Have an inward consciousness of Jesus

We need to have an inward consciousness of Christ
Do you know Jesus lives in you?

Gal 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Romans 6:6
knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.

Who you were as a sinner as Adam was crucified with Him

Christ lives in me

Col 1:26-27
the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

You are an overcomer
The victory is not you, the victory is Christ. You need to lean on Him

Gal 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

I am a vine and you are the branches
Without Me, you can do nothing

You are already there, don’t try to be there

Gal 5:4
You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

Fall from grace is to be justified by the law
Stop working, start resting
Is not achieving, is receiving

Wisdom for your work and life

Always ask the Lord
Let Him live this life for you

1 John 4:16
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

We need to constantly remind ourselves of God’s love

God’s love for us is demonstrated at the cross
Remember His love for you

You abide in Him and He in you
Always remember the Lord’s love for you
