Successful Christian living

Heard these quotes from Paul-Anderson Walsh as I listened to the message he preached while at Hope Fellowship in Canada.

"The key to living a successful Christian life is failing at being a Christian."

"God will not partner with self-sufficiency."

The entire "Deep Calls To Deep" message can be heard here. (Note: the audio is quiet at first, but is eventually turned up). Paul really digs deep into not just being confident of who we are in Christ for our own benefit, but for the benefit of the world. And more than simply knowing about who we are in Christ, and more than knowing about God's wonderful grace, but actually knowing God.


  1. Thanks for this link! I love the 2 quotes, I guess they were what prompted me to begin to listen to the message. So far what I've heard is excellent, can't wait to hear the rest!

  2. Lydia,

    I hope you were able to (or will be able to) listen to the whole message. To me it is richly filled with so much great stuff about knowing God. We're not out to live this Christian lives on our own. We have a living God who is living His life in and through us!

  3. Hi Joel

    I am going to give it a listen Joel, it must be good if it was done in Canada :)

  5. Thank you so very much for the awards, LS! [bows down]I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy![/bows down]

    You are so very thoughtful when it comes to shining the spotlight on other people and not yourself. You really take time and thought, and you pour yourself into it when you do things like this!
