You must be a Christian achiever.
Have you read the story Jesus told in Luke Chapter 16 verse 19-31 about a poor man Lazarus
and the rich man. It’s a popular story.
Lazarus was righteous but poor (and I believe he must have gone through this world without any Christian achievement whatsoever) The rich man was unrighteous but rich. Now Lazarus, the poor man with no tangible Christian achievement made heaven but the rich
man did not make it.
I agree it was great for Lazarus to make heaven. That’s the ultimate for anyone who will walk the surface of this earth. No matter what you do or achieve on this earth, if you don’t make heaven, you have lost all!
The rich man with all his achievements lost all because he did not make heaven.
Is it then wrong for achievers to make heaven? The answer is a straight NO! God wants to achieve and and also make heaven. You became a Christian to turn the world around with your achievements in Christ Jesus.
Paul said very boldly, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Jesus taught the necessity for Godly Christian achievements in the popular Parable of
I strongly believe Lazarus must have missed out on something for him to walk the surface of
this earth poor and as a non-achiever!
God’s Word says “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).
He also says in 3 John 2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.”
Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 4:20, “For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power”. The Message translation puts that verse this way: “God’s way is not a matter of mere talk; it’s
an empowered life.”
An empowered life to show the God stuff you’re made of.
Your Christian achievements on this earth are to show God’s signs and wonders to non-Christians. You must have results to show on this earth to demonstrate a strong proof of your Christianity.
The world in your community, society or country must look towards you, your company and your organisation for solutions to their problems. Let God live His life out of you on this
You must be an achieving Christian.
I thank God that we have had lots of great Christian achievers on this earth since Bible days. These examples are great proofs of what God wants from you and I.
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Joseph, Elijah, Elisha, Moses, Peter, Paul etc. were great Christian achievers.
There are also many post-Bible days’ Christian achievers. People who lived great lives and achieved great things for God on this earth with the great projects they completed
You will find them in Christian ministry, sports, industries etc. These are people who relied only on God’s Word, Godly principles and powers to churn out great projects upon projects
These are people who turned failures to successes and victories. People who are exceptionally committed to the Godly cause of winning the world to Christ with their conducts and achievements.
