ILL. James Byrnes, who was secretary of state under FDR, said that the difference between successful people & average people can be summed up in three words. Here are the three words, "and then some." He said, "Average people do what is expected. Successful people do what is expected, & then some."


Average people fulfill their responsibilities but successful people do what is expected, & then some. It is the same way in the church, isn’t it? Average Christians come to church. Successful Christians, who are successfully living the Christian life, come to church & then some.


Average Christians give. Successful Christians give, & then some. Average Christians pray & read their Bible. But successful Christians read & pray, & then some.


God wants some "& then some" Christians who are willing to sell out to Him no matter what the cost.
