  • When we want to learn about success, we try to find someone who has done it.  We had rather have a model of success than a manual of success.   

    Next to the Lord Jesus Christ, Paul is the best model for successful Christian living we can find.  Paul was an incredible man who lived life to the full and made his life count.  He encouraged the Philippians to “pattern their lives after his” (3:17).
