THE MESSAGE

THREE KEYS TO FULFILLING YOUR DESTINY IN LIFE

*********************************************

1. REALISE THAT YOU ARE NOT YET PERFECT

The first key to fulfilling our destiny is to realise that we are not yet perfect . The Apostle Paul realised that he still had a long way to go. Inspite of all the spiritual experiences that he had in his life he did not think that he had attained everything. Unless we realise our need and true condition, we will become complacent and self satisfied.

The church at Laodicea did not realise it’s spiritual poverty . It was neither hot nor cold but was living in a lukewarm state . The Lord warns that He would vomit anyone who is lukewarm. The Lord counseled the Laodicean church to buy gold from Him and white clothes to wear and eye salve so that they can see. Our true riches are eternal. Our works will be tried by fire and if they are pure gold they will bring us our eternal rewards. We need the robe of righteousness from the Lord because our righteousness are as filthy rags in the sight of God. We need our spiritual eyes to be opened in order to see beyond the natural into the supernatural.

The rich young man who came to Jesus did not realise what he lacked until Jesus exposed his coveteousness. Therefore the first key to fulfilling our destiny is to realise our true condition . Our hearts are deceitful and we may be blind to our own faults. We must ask the Lord to reveal to us all that is lacking in our lives and lead us in the path of eternal salvation.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

*********************

PHILIPPIANS 3:12

" Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, ......"

REVELATION 3:14-19

"To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!

So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

You say, ’I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent."

1 CORINTHIANS 3:12-15

If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,

their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.

If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.
