fail.

we shall spread out through prosperity

Christian Values in times of Prosperity
– Deut. 8:11 – 18
• It is one thing to be humbled and another
thing to be humble.
• Challenges of life and slavery/poverty
humble people but the true colour is shown
in times of prosperity.
• To be humbled is involuntary but it is
voluntary to be humble.
The Charge to you and I – Matt. 11:29
• Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ set us
example in Himself.
• 1 Peter 2:21-23 For to this you were called,
because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us
an example, that you should follow His steps:
"Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found
in His mouth"; who, when He was reviled, did
not revile in return; when He suffered, He did
not threaten, but committed Himself to Him
who judges righteously;
Altar Call
• Our father in heaven is set to bless us
abundantly, are we ready to live our lives to His
pleasure and use the riches for His glory.
• Prosperity is a snare to he who is not truly born
again. Satan uses prosperity to destroy those
who have not totally given their lives to Jesus
Christ.
• The power to be humble in prosperity is in Christ
Jesus.
• Will you give your life today and receive the
power to prosper and prosper to the glory of
God. 8
