What is Success?

From Phil Ryken during the Gospel Coalition

Let me ask you tonight, 'Are you faithful to that call?' My friends, we need to be clear about God's definition for success in the ministry. It has--I think--nothing to do with the size or scope of one's ministry. It has little or nothing to do with political influence. It's not about being trendy or retro or traditional or non-traditional or being whatever kind of church you particularly happen to like.

What then is a successful ministry? Simply this:

A faithful ministry. Faithful to Jesus. Faithful to His Word. Faithful in safeguarding and living out His gospel.
