Having the right foundation is extremely important, any builder will tell you, if you have not got the right foundations in place, it does not matter how good a building looks on the outside, it will crumble.
How many times have you heard of people who class themselves as Christians who have gone into depression or who have backslidden or even committed suicide! It was because they where build on the wrong foundation.
Jesus said he is the chief corner stone and he is also the capping stone:
Ephesians 2: 19 – 22
That is why you are no longer strangers and foreigners but fellow citizens with the saints and members of God's household,
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, the Messiah Jesus himself being the cornerstone.
21 In union with him the whole building is joined together and rises into a holy sanctuary for the Lord.
22 You, too, are being built in him, along with the others, into a place for God's Spirit to dwell
1 Peter 2:2
4 As you come to him, the living stone who was rejected by people but was chosen and precious in God's sight,
5 you, too, as living stones, are building yourselves up into a spiritual house and a holy priesthood, so that you may offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus, the Messiah.
6 This is why it says in Scripture:
"Look! I am laying a chosen, precious cornerstone a in Zion.
The one who believes in him will never be ashamed."
The Capstone sits on top of the building and is the stone that finishes the structure and this is why Jesus is the capstone also:
23 because the husband is the head of the wife as also Christ is the head of the church- he himself being the savior of the body. 24 But as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything
Hebrews 12: 2 – 6
2 fixing our attention on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of the faith, who, in view of a the joy set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God
3 Think about the one who endured such hostility from sinners, so that you may not become tired and give up.
4 In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.
5 You have forgotten the encouragement that is addressed to you as sons:
"My son, do not think lightly of the Lord's discipline
or give up when you are corrected by him.
6 For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he punishes a every son he accepts."
7 What you endure disciplines you: God is treating you as sons. Is there a son whom his father does not discipline
If Jesus is our foundation many of the struggles we go through, we would handle them a lot better.
It takes faith to completely surrender our lives totally over to God and this is why the enemy will try and put things in the way of us to try and stop us from doing that, because he knows that a person completely submitted to God is a danger to him:
James 4: 7- 8
7 So submit to God. But resist the devil and he will flee from you.
8 Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and make your hearts pure, you double- minded.
In 2013 our activities should be based on the right foundation, which is the word, any other foundation will cause us to fail (John 1:1) Jesus and the word are one and the same.
Do not make a new years resolution, but make a definitive decision to make Jesus the Lord over ALL of your life and just see what will happen in 2013!
Many people look at other people who seem to be advancing quickly in Reliv and they wonder why that rate of growth isn't happening in their business. However you should never think that way, because you do not know how they are building their business and whether or not it is being built on the right foundations.
It does not matter how things look on the outside, if it is not being built correctly, as quick as it goes up, it will come right back down.
The foundation to build your Reliv business on is the Reliv System, whether you have bought into it or not, it does not change the fact that it is the only way to effectively build a Reliv business.
Many people have tried to build a Reliv business with out using the Reliv System, ALL HAVE FAILED!
People who have built successful Reliv Businesses who have then decided to move away from the Reliv System and do their own thing, ALL have seen a drop in their cheque!
Foundations make a build strong and the Reliv System will make your business strong.
If you want success in 2013 then truly buy into the Reliv System and apply all 7 elements.
7 is God's number for perfection, so there is no coincidence why all 7 elements applied correctly will build your business.
Ask yourself the question, have you truly bought into the Reliv System or have you been playing with it?
2013 could be your year in Reliv, if you put the right things in place and lay the right foundations.
HAPPY NEW YEARS!
