TOPIC: STEPS TO GREATNESS
TEXTS: 3 JOHN 1:
DEFINITION OF TERMS
According to Oxford Dictionary greatness means the quality of being great; eminence or distinction. Greatness can also be attributed to individuals who possess a skill, talent or ability to be better than all others.
Greatness is not a promise it is a covenant. God has destined every believer to be great, you inclusive.
The kingdom of God is principle based. The blessings of God are kept a secret from everybody. They are concealed and it takes people with insight to fine them out. Luke 6:10, Prov. 25:1.
Greatness as one of the blessings of God is unlocked by divine principles. These principles are like keys that open doors. “A key-less man is a hopeless man”.
Success is not a product of accident; it does not happen by chance. It is never an inheritance. Since it a covenant, one must learn how to activate it.
THE FOLLOWING ARE THE KEYS THAT ACTIVATE THE COVENANT OF GREATNESS
- Study: Nothing can take the place of knowledge. Show me a man who is truly great and I will show you a man who learns. Hosea 4:6. “What you know is who you are”
- Diligence: By being diligence we mean hard work. Gone are the days when people fold their hands and prayed for God to send them Manna. Prov. 22:29. God hates idle hands and find it difficult to bless them. “The best God can do to the lazy hand is to help it gets poorer”
- Obedience: Simply means submitting oneself to authority or to one another. We must have to submit ourselves to the authority of God to activate the covenant of greatness. Jeremiah 29:11, Isaiah 1:19.
- Giving: The truth is no man become great without knowing how to give. Luke 6:38, Prov. 11:24
- Hard Prayer: No doubt there are a lot of anti-success forces that could hinder a man from prospering despite all he’s doing to succeed. “Take time to take charge of the devil through prayers”.
Conclusion: With these five keys you can unlocked your potential of greatness, break barriers, break limitations, open new doors, turn dry grounds to a vital one by creating new adventures and make your way prosperous.
