Our Success Is A Reflection Of Our Relationship With Him!

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” (Psalm 127:1, NIV)

Growing up many of us were told the only way to get ahead in this world was to go to college and receive a good education. We were taught that success meant having a professional career, a lot of influential friends, and more money than we could ever spend. Although we may have attended church and listened to numerous sermons, many of us still believed that our success was dependent upon our own accomplishments.

It never really dawned on me until I really started following Christ that He is the reason for my success. When our lives are built around Him, it doesn’t matter what we do for a living, or who our friends are, or how much money we have. He assures our success. Our success is a reflection of our relationship with Him! If we “build our house” around the Lord, and we invite Him to “stand guard” over us, we cannot fail!

Enjoy your Monday, “Working for Christ”!

  1. Great word Dave. It used to be such a struggle to be a success before Jesus. Even when I was ‘successful’ I didn’t feel it. There’s something that drives the flesh to exhaustion! Now, I’m driven by His love. Having said that, it doesn’t come automatically for me – I have to ‘keep myself in Him, and not me!”
    Keep up the blogs.

    It is interesting to see how many Christians get caught up in the world’s idea of success, chasing the dreams and blessings of what the world considers to be good, while never really taking the time to sit with Jesus, like Mary at His feet, and find out what is worthwhile to Him. I’m afraid we may waste our entire lives chasing petty things, never really understanding God’s Kingdom Dream for this world, and never really taking part in it. We are a lot like Laodicea, and they thought they were rich and well-off too.
