The Only Way to Measure Success In Ministry

According to every measuring stick that we use for success, Jesus did not measure up. He never had a degree, He wasn’t rich, He wasn’t popular, and He died a criminal’s death. By the measuring sticks of man, we would see Jesus’ life as a failure.

However, Eugene wants to talk to us about how Jesus succeeded. In fact, Eugene is so excited to share this message with us that he interrupted what he was doing to talk with us about what is going on in the Middle East.

What does success in ministry look like?

Success often has a selfish point of view where WE are exalted for being so obedient, but can we measure a successful ministry through man’s measurements? Listen to these thoughts and be prepared to hear questions that might make you uncomfortable.

Episode 656: The Only Way To Measure Success In Ministry

I am a Messianic Jewish believer that felt the tug of the L-rd towards the unreached. I decided I would go to China. My love for the Chinese people grew while I was there, but when I learned of the Back to Jerusalem movement, I knew the L-rd wanted me to be proclaiming His gospel message to the unreached people between China and Jerusalem. Let’s unite and complete the great commission. We need to accept the challenge Jesus has given us so that we can feel the exhilaration of victory.

    Success is never measured by money or materialistic things. These are just “THINGS” God say people on Earth use “TO SHOW OFF” others what they perceive as “SUCCESS”. Success to GOD is having a family and children and doing an HONEST DAY’S WORK and having God “As the Center of your life and family and job.” He alawys was but this generation became Godless and God tells me that their possessions and materialistic things and money and sex and all the false idols they worship is their GOD today. Our Forefathers of America who fought to break away from British Colonial America and free the slaves and write and compose the Constitution and make our Laws and pass them all Loved and Believed in God and Obeyed him and listened to God and they read the Bible and even quoted scripture that included the Colonists and Soldiers that fought and Generals and Officers and Politicans and our Former Presidents and Vice Presidents all spoke to God and Our Constitution was written by God with them all where it even says (UNDER GOD and JUSTICE for ALL and LIBERTY and FREEDOM. That’s why we added God Bless America. God did in the 1800’s where the American Industrial Revolution was soaring and the first 3 Banks were establish and Mills were being built and factories where Americans began to prosper. I read a great book about this called Lincoln and the Fight for Peace by John Avlon and I just started another book called Capitolism in America by Alan Greenspan and another author where he too is talking about the Colonial times beginning with rhe American Revolution in the late 1700’s where I’m up to the Industrial Revolution and can’t wait to read the entire book. And I can’t wait to read another book I just bought called American Poison (How RACIAL Hostility Destroyed Our Promise) by Eduardo Porter. This book is so TRUE. Our Racism in America will never end because it’s all about RACE here. Everything is Race driven with getting things and JUSTICE and being ARRESTED.
