DAY 3 FRIDAY: AUGUST 2018

SUCCESS THAT IS ETERNAL!

While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Eternal success is the true success that is obtained through the Word of God. The Bible says that the things that are seen are temporary, but the things that are not seen are eternal. The things that are achieved through human efforts and abilities are temporary but the things that are obtained by faith through the Word of God are real and eternal. It does not fade away because it is rooted in eternity.

As a Christian, when you stand your ground to proclaim God’s Word by faith, the results you get by faith through the Word of God bring eternal success, and they can never perish. But whatever results you get by your charisma, human abilities and efforts are temporary success which does not last but fade away with time. The glory of eternal success is real, everlasting and to the praise of God.

Eternal success does not depend on human charisma, efforts and abilities, but it depends solely on the grace of God. No wonder John the Baptist in spite of the great wonders and amazing testimonies said about him; he said thus, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). In fact, eternal success does not attract glory to self but to God. That was why Apostle Paul said that he was the least of all the apostles in spite of all that God used him to accomplish in the early church (1 Corinthians 15:9). He was a man who single-handedly wrote almost half of the New Testament full of spiritual understanding, knowledge and wisdom of God.

Daily Tip: Do not seek for the worldly success that is temporary, but seek for eternal success that is real and does not fade away with time. Shalom!

Golden Text: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33).
