Crazy successful? What’s the measure of success? If we measure success by any of these tools, wealth, popularity or power, most of us would default by circumstance, to failure. So, what is the measure of success? Are we doomed to a life of relative failure simply because we don’t have enough money or friends to grab the power we need to be called successful?
Think about it. Jesus lived among a people who hated him. He worked with twelve illiterate men who deserted him. Finally he was killed for what he preached, forsaken and alone. Was he a success?
God’s Word tells us: (When Jesus was taken by His foes.) “Then everyone deserted him and fled.” (Mark 14:50).
To the world Jesus seemed a crazy failure; to us he was a crazy success. Are you interested in being successful? The odds of you getting there are far greater if you strive to be the best that you are–little money, some friends but a whole lot of power based on persevering and believing that God doesn’t make any junk, just Christians with the potential to be crazy successful.
“Lord, we praise you for your resolve to obey the Father. For your resolve, to drink this cup on our behalf. For your resolve to die on a cross for our sins. All glory be to your name, forever and ever, and ever for this prayer and for putting feet to it right after this, by going to the cross. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34). www.thispassingday.com
