DEFINING TRUE SUCCESS
1. True success is being who God wants us to be.
True success has to do with our being — how we live our personal lives in both private and public. Because God has a design for human life, we are accountable to Him for our personal development to reach our full potential. God’s design includes His desire for us to be Christ-like. Spiritual disciplines like regular prayer, reading the Bible, meditating on the Scriptures day and night, fasting, and worship all help in transforming our character towards Christlikeness.
2. True success is doing what God wants us to do.
Doing is the outflow and byproduct of our being. It refers to our mission and public practice of obeying God’s commands to fulfil our roles and our calling in the workplace, the church, our community, and wherever else God has called us to go. Obviously, we cannot abdicate who God wants us to ‘be’ and delegate what God wants us to ‘do.’ God makes us accountable for all of it.
3. True success is hearing God say, “Well done my good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your master.”
C.S. Lewis, the author of the book series,
“The Chronicles of Narnia”, said that our lives
on earth has only been the title and the cover page. The next Chapter is the One with the Great Story. Someday when we go to heaven it will be Chapter One of our eternal life with the Lord. Our life now is just but a preparation for the future.
The world’s definition of success does not have the most critical components – God and eternity. God’s definition of true success includes a preparation for eternal life and not only for life in this world.
The reality about death has an amazing power of altering man’s desires for what is important and what is not. When our time is up on earth,
we will all leave behind everything we have (Ecclesiastes 2:18–19; Luke 12:19–21).
4. True success is being connected with God
We read in the life of Joseph many times that God was with Him and He made him prosper (Genesis 39: 2, 3, 5, 9, 21, 23). Joseph’s master saw that the Lord was with him and it paved the way for his promotion. Joseph pursued the right life goals toward becoming what God wants him to be and doing what God wants him to do. For this, Joseph brought blessings to others. This
is true success, it cannot be just for you but it spreads to the life of many others too.
