It’s Thursday afternoon, so it’s time to highlight the writing of J. D. Greear, Pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. This week J. D. helpfully distinguishes between success and faithfulness, or true success.
Here’s an excerpt of the post:
What God requires of you is not success, but faithfulness in what he has assigned to you. Ask yourself: what has Jesus called you to do? You aren’t responsible to save the world, but you are responsible to follow Christ in your situation. For a servant, “success” in life is identifying what God has called you to and being completely faithful in it.
