Howdy! A Portland, OR native, I currently reside in the northern San Diego County area as a freelance writer. When I'm not sipping coffee, soaking up some rays and writing or playing guitar you can find me at the hot yoga studio.
This question has been given to every person who has taken on the name of Jehovah and accepted His way of life.
So many people hear the words "Be successful," and they think it must mean being very wealthy or famous or living a certain kind of life.
But when you say that you are a Jehovah's Witness, you say that you're going to Heaven.
You are saying that you are going to Paradise, you are saying that you are going to God's Kingdom on the Earth.
Why? Because you believe that if you die and the Bible tells you that the dead will not have any part in the judgment, you are sure to go to Heaven.
You believe this even if your family has disowned you and the rest of the world has forgotten about you.
The question is, why are you going to Heaven? Why do you think it is important to make Heaven your life goal?
When you say, "Be successful," you are declaring a mission statement that when you leave Earth, you will enter God's Kingdom on the Earth.
So why do we have to seek success? If we say that we are going to Heaven, that is enough motivation for most people.
But why do we need to seek success when we can have God all to ourselves for eternity?
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 15:13: "I thank my God every time I remember you, in all my prayers for all of you, because I always pray with joy 2 not because I have been gifted with wealth, but because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, with all your prayers and efforts."
We are told that when we pray with joy, not because of our prosperity, but because of our partnership in the Gospel, we are praising God.
Now, that sounds a lot like our desire to be successful. It sounds like we want to be successful because we believe in the love of God.
It sounds like we believe in God, and we want to give Him the glory.
When you make your life goal to be successful, you are beginning a new chapter in your life. The Bible calls this a rebirth.
This is when you start thinking that you are important, that you are valuable, that you have something worthwhile to give the world.
This is when you want to influence others so that they will be like you. This is when you start believing that you are in control.
When we work hard at something, we gain self-respect. When we are valued and respected by others, we begin to believe that we are valuable and important.
We begin to believe that we have something valuable to give the world. We can be happy and blessed just being on Earth, receiving this kind of attention from the people around us.
If we believe that we can do anything we want to, we may work even harder to achieve that goal.
This answer has been given to every Jehovah's Witness at some point. If you are rich, then you are going to go to Heaven.
If you are a famous person, then you are going to go to Heaven. If you are a great doctor or famous singer, then you are going to go to Heaven.
But it's all about God.
Jehovah's Witnesses must think about how good God is, and then they have to pray for love for everyone, no matter how much they have, no matter what they have accomplished.
This may mean that they feel lonely at times.
They may feel sad. They may feel depressed.
But in the end, it is always about God. We all have to have a pure heart.
We all have to have a desire to obey God. We have to have a desire to serve God and a desire to do what He wants us to do.
If we are to have true successful life, then we must have a desire to live for God.
We must think about the love of God, and then we have to be willing to sacrifice what we want for what God wants.
We must be willing to serve God by giving up our wants and our desires to live for Him.
The reason that we can do all these things is that God loves us.
We cannot get to Heaven because we are successful people. We can get there because of God.
There are two ways to be successful. One is like in the words of Jesus, "To Live Like Jesus".
It's a great, fantastic goal. To live a life pleasing to God is the ultimate goal of every man. When we become good in this way, we will be blessed with divine wisdom and prosperity.
Then there is the second way to be successful. It's the method that is far from God. Some people indulge in luxury, crimes, filthiness, and greed and the result is their downfall.
It's a very vicious way to be successful. They become worldly and leave God.
But being successful in the outer world is not a good goal. We need to be successful in the inner world.
If we are successful in our inner world, we will be successful in the outer world.
