Email Tips: Christian Competition

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, February 6th, 2010 .

People love to compete.

Apparently, this does not change with Christians.
It is not uncommon to hear comparisons of the
success of this ministry with that ministry, church
with church, or pastor with pastor.

Paul says we are not wise to measure ourselves by
ourselves (2 Cor 10:12).

Let this be a rule in your personal service to God
and your ministry. Attendance, gifts, salaries,
books authored, or countries missioned do not
properly evaluate your success.

You do not need God to accomplish these things.

Never run the race against someone else. You
are complete in Christ. Answer only to the Lord
and you will find the measure of success (1 Cor 4:1-4).

For his glory,

Justin Curtis Johnson
