Good Morning!

Why is it so few people end the Christian life well? Here are a few observations I have made over the years:

  1. A failure to comprehend and rest in the grace of god. (Psa. 103:10-14; II Tim. 2:1; Heb. 4:9-11)
  2. A failure to live a life of disciplined priorities. (I Cor. 9:24-27;  I Tim. 4:7; II Pet. 1:5-8)
  3. A failure in our earlier years to deal with sins and other debilitating issues. (I Tim. 5:24; Gal. 6:7, 8)
  4. A failure to handle finances in a biblical manner. (Deut. 8:17,18; I Tim. 6:6-10; Lk. 6:10-13; Rom. 13:8; Prov. 6:1-5)
  5. A failure to deal Biblically with  the sexual area of life. (Matt. 5:27-30;  I Thess. 4:3-7)
  6. A failure to grasp God’s sovereignty and grace in responding Biblically to bitterness, disappointment and disillusionment. (Isa. 14:24; Rom. 8:28-30; Heb. 12:14, 15)
  7. A failure to live a life of sacrifice rather than a life of ease. (Lk. 9:23, 24; II Cor. 5:15)
  8. A failure to live a life of transparency, accountability and fellowship. (Jms. 5:16, Prov. 27:17; I Jn. 1:7; Heb. 10:24, 25)



 My prayer is that you are having a great week!
