What if I told you that on Sunday we had nearly 10 times more people than Scripture says it is necessary for Jesus to show up?   Is that success to you?

Here is what I have discovered in Scripture about what God considers success.

  1. The saving gospel is preached
  2. The gospel is experienced in the observance of the Lord’s supper.
  3. God is worshiped in Spirit and in Truth
  4. People give of their time, talent and treasure in service to God and His Church
  5. The people loved each other and welcomed the stranger

Yeah, we are “successful” in the eyes of God.
