Success and Failure

My friend, don’t waste your life by pursuing goals to make yourself more comfortable. You live the life you were created for by pursuing the goal of knowing Jesus. There is so much more to your relationship with Jesus than just knowing more about Him. You can know Him in every area of your life. You are meant to live your life through Him and for Him to live through you. This looks different in different seasons. Seasons of life change but Jesus does not. He wants more for you than for you to just work for Him, He made you to work with Him, love others with Him, forgive others with Him and see the world around you through His perspective.

The Apostle Paul wrote to the church he founded in Phillipi, “Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him.” Philippians 3:8 NLT

At the end of your life, you may or may not have human praise but if you have gone after a relationship with Jesus, you will have so much more than that. Knowing Jesus means you will step into eternity having lived in rich relationships, miraculous moments, great faith adventures as well as the single most important thing you can have– Jesus Himself.
