“Success seems to be the ‘golden calf’ of the American church.
These days, we measure the success of a church by the 3 B’s…buildings, bodies, and budget. When those 3 things reach a certain number, we equate that with a successful ministry.
But if we measured Jesus’ earthly ministry by that standard, He would be considered an epic failure.
That should tell us something about our definition of success.”
