8 Principles of Ultimate Success

I was recently invited to speak at the Friday evening service of Truth Christian Ministries International in Las Vegas. It was an exciting, Spirit-filled evening. It was fun to worship with a group of fellow disciples of Jesus Christ who were excited to learn and share the powerful and saving principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I was asked to speak on Ultimate Success. I spoke for 51 minutes and shared 8 principles of Ultimate Success.

I have uploaded an audio recording of the presentation to our website. I think you will really enjoy this presentation. Please listen and then share it with all those who could benefit from its message. I appreciate your help in sharing the message with others.

“And he [Jesus] said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15, KJV)

“For Christ sent me . . . to preach the gospel . . . lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross . . . is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:17-18, KJV)

Link to the audio recording of the presentation is below:

Ultimate Success Principle #1
We should seek the Lord for inspiration not out of desperation. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” -Proverbs 3:5-6, KJGV

Ultimate Success Principle #2
If you put God last, you will go nowhere fast. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” -Matthew 6:33, KJV

Ultimate Success Principle #3
“He that findeth his life shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” -Matthew 10:39, KJV

Ultimate Success Principle #4
A belief that success is a result of a person’s energies, labor, and mental capacity will create the vices of pride, selfishness, and ungratefulness. The virtues of humility, generosity, and gratitude will fill our hearts, minds, and souls once we realize our total dependence on God and believe that all we have and are is a gift from Him.

Ultimate Success Principle #5
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” -Philippians 4:13, NKJV

Ultimate Success Principle #6
There are no failures in life, only those who quit before success. Failure is a part of learning. The formula for success is trying until you succeed. If you give up during the struggle, you will never experience the victory. “We count them happy which endure.” -James 5:11, KJV

Ultimate Success Principle #7
If you want to succeed, you need to read. “Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read.” -Isaiah 34:16, KJV

Ultimate Success Principle #8
Christ is the perfect example of Ultimate Success. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” -John 14:6, KJV

"The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all"-Philippians 4:23
