Success from a Godly Perspective

Posted on

We should never dumb down God’s power to our level in order to protect ourselves from disappointment. We should determine to offer people what God has promised and willingly deal with the consequences. I would rather fail according to human standards, by offering people the hope of transformation God has promised, than to succeed by watering down God’s truth, ensuring they never find it. . . . I’d rather fail believing in God’s promises and power than succeed by diminishing them (Brad Powell, Change Your Church for Good, p. 45).
