How do you measure the success of your church’s ministry? Are you concerned simply for numbers or for faithfulness to the Word of God? More than anything else, the Lord is looking for fidelity to His gospel, and it is His good pleasure to give the growth where He sees fit (1 Cor. 3:1–9). How are you tempted to compromise the Word in your everyday life? Pray that you would be equipped to stand for the gospel truth no matter what.
