The Secret to Success

Acts 13:36-36

Topics: Encouragement

Would you like to be important? Would you like to be a leader in God’s kingdom? There is a secret to success in the kingdom of God. Surprisingly, it does not involve people serving you and meeting your needs. It does not involve you being treated like a “big man” and every one else like “little people.”

This same Spirit gives us the power to be witnesses (Acts 1:8). So, it is when we receive this same gift that was poured out at Pentecost that we become Pentecostal. [ read more... ]
