The Success That Failed /Part 1

Pastor's Sermon Points 08/06/2017





Scripture Text: Genesis 13:12-13


Subject: “The Success That Failed/Part 1”


Introduction: Church this twenty first century has ushered in an age which lends itself more to glorifying success than giving glory to the Savior of the world. As I stand before you this morning, I am shame to report that we are living in a day and time where some folks are willing to pay almost any price for success.

It seems like some people will sink to the depths of degradation or misuse themselves and others just to get to the top. I challenge you with the thought today that you can experience temporary success that ends in total failure.

Summary Verse: And if it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye shall serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell; but for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15
