(MORNING) HOW TO REMAIN RELEVANT
Text: Philippians 3:13
No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this thing, Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.
Relevant means not out of date: being current, in time, period or circumstances.
Some many people have lost their relevance including, pastors, apostle, businessmen and women, e.t.c.
They display picture and quote on social media, of the past event, then what is happening now? Celebrating the past over and over again is a sign of loss of relevant.
You raised the dead, healed the sick, built mansion and had millions in your account and did a lot of exploiting years back is good, “BE I GET AM BEFORE NO BE PROPERTY ” if the salt has lost it savor what good is it? (Matt 5:13)
HOW TO REMAIN RELEVANT
1) Recognize that there are more dimension l, more land, more territory to conquer, more impact to make. Don’t settle for less or continue to celebrate the past achievements,(Phil.3:13)
2) Don’t lose that divine communication with God, the giver of vision. A man that have to climb a tree, needs continue holding the tree if not he will fall.

4) Keep pressing and having a new vision of your calling, there is no limit to what you can achieve. If you can think it you have it
Prayer: Father, help us not to lose our relevance. There are more to destiny. Keep us on the right track.
