Successful Service

For what do you want to be known? Paul says in 1Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

It would be easy to set up our own criteria for success in ministry, but God has already told us what it will take to be successful.  The Corinthians looked at what they had rather than what they were, and thought that they were spiritual.

1 Corinthians is a book that challenges us to look inside rather than outside. It challenges us to look at what we are rather than what we have.

Successful Service.  Do your best because God will reward your actions and motives in the full light of absolute knowledge.
