An Interesting Thought: The Key to Success and Failure

“We become what we think about.” What do yo think about? If you watch at 7:00 onward, there’s a great message to be heard.

Scripture references the renewing of the mind and the new self (Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 4:20-24). Scripture, also, speaks of the Believer running a race (1 Corinthians 9:24-27 and Hebrews 12:1). These examples are all speaking to one’s ability to build the self into an instrument useable by Christ for the work.

The issue with “We become what we think about,” is that we think about everything but Christ. We are not focused on Kingdom work. We have been, are being, and will continue to be distracted by the works of Satan.

I have noticed that we will speak endlessly about that which we love. They’ll speak of their sports teams, their children, their work, and other distractions. While waiting for the worship service I never hear the congregation speaking of kingdom work.

If the Gospel is not spoken of in the pews, are the members Christian? If the members are not willing to go out into the streets, are living they going in to the highways and byways seeking the lost? If the members are not capable to proclaiming Jesus name, are they really in relationship with Him?
