This weekend we continued our series, The Power of Same, that is based on John 15.  We are reading through this chapter as a church every day, and some of us are memorizing it.  It has been such a great start to the new year.  I hope you have been joining us!  This weekend the message was called, “The secret of sustainable success.”

My husband taught us that the secret is that your success is only as sustainable as its source.  If the source of my success is my strength, my skill, my popularity, it will only last until the source runs out.   But if my source is Jesus, the true vine, my success can be sustainable.

He taught us that our lives must have 3 constants…

  1. Constant Calling- my circumstances may change but the calling remains
  2. Constant Character- who I am when no one else is looking
  3. Constant Council- who surrounds me to encourage me and stand with me
We also learned that Jesus is the constant.  He never asks me to maintain my love for Him, He simply asks me to remain in His love for me.
This has been such a powerful series.  I hope you will take the time to listen to this message.  It will really encourage you. You can watch it later today on the Elevation Network, in our archive and on our podcast. And don’t forget, every sermon is also available on the Elevation App for your smart phone.

Have a great Monday!
