Email Tips: Defining Success

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, January 1st, 2011 .

Traffic to the website has increased 200% since last year.
The number of subscribers to our updates has increased 300%.
There are more than 100 new resources on the website.

Yet with all of these positive numbers a better measurement
of success would be the people who wrote back to me this year
and said, “I was confused about salvation until I heard this message.”

Success is measured by your edification and growth in faith
and judgment.

Be not unwise, understand that the will of the Lord is not to
see ministries grow into large ministerial boondoggles.
It is to see souls saved and saints edified (1 Tim 2:4).

Hundreds of ambassadors scattered across the country
can do the job more effectively than one ministry in small
town Indiana.

Mature in your understanding of the Bible with the free
resources on our site. Then redeem the time by doing the
work that is needed where you live to see souls saved.

You in Christ Jesus is success. Succeed this year by
presenting others in him.

For his glory,

Justin Curtis Johnson
