FROM THE PULPIT: Let’s avoid major causes of spiritual failure

Published: Friday, August 30, 2013 at 11:17 AM.

Christians have that sense of belonging. God tell us that He loves us; see John 3:15-17 and 1 John 4:7-11. He loves us and, because of that, we love Him. 

Misplaced confidence

This world says money, possessions, status and power make us successful.

TV ads repeatedly say we will find satisfaction in buying this car or having that financial portfolio with money, real estate and holdings.

But true security, true satisfaction, comes from knowing Jesus Christ. When we lie down to sleep, it is with real joy and peace in knowing that if we don’t wake up, we are secure in Christ and have entered eternal rest.  

God wants to minister to your every need. Do not allow these five causes of spiritual failure to take root in you.

The Rev. Albert Corey is Oak Ridge Assembly of God's pastor.
