TEXT: Phil. 4:13
MINISTERING: Rev. Mrs. Abiola Babatunde
The Lord is telling you to go out there and fulfil purpose. There is no limit to what you can achieve if you are enabled by God.
To be enabled means to be given everything you need to achieve purpose.
WAYS WE ARE ENABLED BY CHRIST
1. Academic Excellence. Phil. 4:8, Proverbs 22:29
God has given us a way to excel academically; our part is to be diligent.
Diligence means to be persistent and careful in your work.
NOTE: The enemy of success is not failure but mediocrity.
2. Moral Excellence. 1 Thess. 5:22
You have the power to decide if you will stand alone.
Ways the world fails morally.
i. Sexual purity 1 cor. 6 vs 18-19 1 Thes. 4 vs 3-5
ii. Behavioural purity Eph. 6:1-3
Obedience is a proof that you love God by loving your parents.
iii. Company you keep. Col 3 vs 5
3. POWER TO SAY NO James 4:7
Say No to everything that is wrong. Stand your ground when it comes to evil.
Who benefits if you SAY NO to evil:
ii. Your future
iii. Your family
iv. Your circle of influence Heb. 12:1
Be a good example to the world around you.
To Our Parents Eph. 6:4
God has given us the responsibility to love them irrespective of whom they are, so don’t give up on the responsibility of being their guard.
