“Don’t Settle for The False Heaven of A ‘Successful Ministry’ “

Because real success is faithfulness. Big church or small church, growing church or declining church, well-known church or obscure church – all churches are epic successes full of the eternal, invincible quality of the kingdom of God when they treasure Jesus’s gospel and follow him. Jesus did not give the keys of the kingdom with the ability to bind and loose on both sides of the veil only to those who reached a certain attendance benchmark. So do well, pursue excellence, and stay faithful. God will give you what you ought to have according to his wisdom and riches.
