What is Success?

 We judge a man by what we see and visibly make an opinion of whether or not he is successful.  God measures things differently than man…his ways are higher than ours and his end results always are successful!  Success depends upon our obedience when we submit our will.  God puts success in you when you do what He calls you to do.  God called us to be “witnesses”.  You don’t need a lot of knowledge to witness about how God has changed your life!  Everyone has a personal testimony.  It doesn’t matter what the background, where  you came from or who you are kin to – you have a testimony.  People can argue with theories, and speculation, but cannot argue with your experience with God and what he has done for you!  Our world wants to hear a witness!  Even if they reject Christ, we are successful in doing our part of sowing the seed by our witness.

The story of the Samaritan woman that met Jesus at the well in John 4 was powerful.  Verse 39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. 40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.  41 And many more believed because of his own word;  42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. 

The woman rushed back to the city and told the men of the city her personal testimony.  The Bible says many more believed after they heard Jesus speak.  Then the men said to the woman that they believed because they had their OWN experience with Jesus and not just because of the woman’s testimony.  This woman’s personal testimony was so effective that it moved an entire city towards Jesus Christ.  Find someone today and share how you received the Holy Ghost, how God has healed, delivered, supplied your needs – Be a Witness – that’s real success!
