Poorly written notes = poorly written blog. Deal with it.

Four Ingredients of Success
  1. Consecration. To devote to a purpose with deep dedication.
    • We must be disciplined. All Christians are called to discipline.
    • We must come into the presence of God.
    • Romans 11:29 "...God's gifts and God's call are irrevocable."
    • Psalms 55:21 "His speech is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart; his words are more soothing than oil, yet they are drawn swords."
      It's not good enough to know the Sunday School answers. We must have changed hearts and changed lives.
  2. Character Formed by God.
  3. Spirit of Conquest.
    Whatever you do not conquer conquers you.
  4. Never Get Used to Mediocrity.
    We can't ever accept things the way they were. I hate to quote RFK, but "There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why... I dream of things that never were and ask why not?" That kind of thinking will lead to all sorts of crazy stuff like praying for the people that you think are going to hell instead of shaking your head at them. What? I'm just sayin...
And, what if we don't?
"After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel." Judges 2:10
