Paul is considered by most Christians to have been "successful" in his ministry of reaching out to non-believers, discipleship and church planting.
Paul was also beaten, shipwrecked, and put in prison.
Being a "successful" Christian doesn't sound as exciting after that knowledge...
Please do not let me base my faithfulness, obedience or peace of being in Your will on how many students attend our events, how many students get baptized in our ministry, or how liked we are by others. Whether "results" of our ministry attempts be good or bad, it is for Your glory and the purposes You want to accomplish...even if that purpose be my humility. Thanks, God, love You.
In Your Son's name I pray,
