Successful Christianity

Sean winter pastor Falcon Lake All People's Church

Finding joy
The Christian perspective
What does that mean? 
Grew up with grandparents missionaries around the world

Steinbach has 40 some churches. I ask people why they are going to heaven. They don't know. 

Dear children, you belong to God. So you have won the victory over these people, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. We belong to God. The person who knows God listens to us. Whoever doesn't belong to God doesn't listen to us. That's how we can tell the Spirit of truth from the spirit of lies. Dear friends, we must love each other because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born from God and knows God. We have seen and testify to the fact that the Father sent his Son as the Savior of the world. God lives in those who declare that Jesus is the Son of God, and they live in God. We have known and believed that God loves us. God is love. Those who live in God's love live in God, and God lives in them.
1 John 4:4‭, ‬6‭-‬7‭, ‬14‭-‬16 GW

A tree can't find water. All it can do is grow and bear fruit. 
That's how we need to abide in Jesus. We can choose where we want to be. By the water or in the desert. Some of us get a bucket of water in church and live in the desert all week hoping we have enough water. 

God loves me no matter what. He wants a personal relationship with me. God's love is always the same. Get to know him as your father. That's what a successful Christian looks like. 

Fall in love with Jesus more and more. He'll change your heart and you'll bear fruit. 

 Meet with Jesus every morning to get his love to change you.

A fellow came to my house. His dad was an imprisoned murderer. I spent 2 hours with him, he accepted Jesus and he us now a married church leader.

Saul did his best to destroy the church. He became a powerful church leader. 

God brought the walls around Jericho down after the people walked in obedience for 7 days. 

Ask Jesus to show you how to walk with him.
