Esau succeeded in gaining pleasure, possession, power, popularity—- worldly pursuits. But Esau was considered a profane and godless man who was drawn to what was immediate, temporary, and convenient. Despite achieving what the world looks up to, Esau’s legacy was godlessness.
Heb 12:16 16 that there be no immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal.
People around you may succeed in the worldly sense.
Proverbs 24:1 Do not envy the wicked, do not desire their company; 2 for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble. 3 By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established.
Wanted to share with you excerpts from Pastor Bong Saquing’s message yesterday at CCF Main on Genesis 36 from the life of Esau, “LIVE FOR THE BEST.”
Worldy success is temporary. Godly success lasts for eternity. Godly success is rooted in what God calls us to do, what God authorises us to do; it is rooted in our relationship with Him.
John 17:4 (Jesus speaking) I have brought You glory on earth by finishing the work You gave me to do.
Be encouraged, Beloved, what You choose for God as unto God may not be recognised by the world but it matters in eternity. If you had a billion votes but did not get God’s approval, of what use would that be?
