Chris Quilala

0:31:38

Chris teaches on what kingdom success is and what are the roadblocks that will keep you from it

What is kingdom success?

  • “Kingdom success is being faithful with what God has given you.”
  • Matthew 6:1-5
  • “Success can only be found in the secret place.”
  • The temptation is to compare ourselves with what everyone else is doing.

Find your success in community

  • Story: Chris living with the Johnsons.
  • Find the people who will challenge us and call us to a higher level.
  • “We bear fruit when we are in community and are planted.”

Fear of man is a roadblock to successfully walking out our calling

  • Story: Brian and Chris dancing undignified.
  • Life is so short, don’t miss the opportunity to do all He has for you.

Comparison is a roadblock to successfully walking out our calling

  • We do the world a disservice when we compare ourselves to others.
  • Story: Dream about a dream he had about singing people into freedom.
  • We are most effective when we are operating in the gifting God has placed on our lives.
  • We’ve got to be champions of other people. 

Pride is a roadblock to successfully walking out our calling

  • If you feel like you have “arrived” you are probably dealing with the issue of pride.
  • If you think you have arrived, that means you probably have because that means you will stop growing. 

Offense is a roadblock to successfully walking out our calling

  • When living in community, we will get offended. 
  • Offense will keep us from loving each other.
  • “We can't fully love God without fully loving others.”
  • “We can’t fully love people if we are offended by people.”

Kingdom success is to serve

  • We don’t ever outgrow serving.
  • Be faithful with whatever is in front of you no matter what it looks like.
  • Be faithful with the seen and unseen.

Success is seeking the face of God no matter the circumstance

  • Story: About the loss of his son.
