THE SECRET TO SUCCESS

We see the secret to the success of the Man Jesus. He saturated himself with the divine and consequently he excelled. You don't degrees, qualification or a good family name to excel. You need only Christ. Christ is enough! Christ is sufficient! Your excellence is found in Christ. I believe we can model that same example and reflect it in our lives. You are nobody until God certifies you and it is what we should all aspire for! How do you distinguish yourself in Christ? By immersing yourself in the totality of Christ. Subsumed, absorbed and completely enamoured of Christ. Let him be your all in all. In him is your life, your life is hid in him, he is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature and for him were all things created.....and he is before all things and by him all things consist. He is the head of the body, the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, he has preeminence in all things....it pleased the Father that in Him all fulness should dwell.Now the beauty of all these is Christ is in us AND CHRIST IN US IS THE HOPE OF GLORY! (Colossians 1:15 -19; 27). To be distinguished in Christ you need to be rooted, built up and established in the faith so that you can abound with thanksgiving/praise and you can ward off philosophies, vanity, and traditions of men after the rudiments of this world (Colossians 2: 7-8).
