#day11  Complete! 🕯️Favorite Devotional Part:🕯️ ~Jesus redefines #success. If we want to know what true success is, we have to look at the model of Jesus – his vision, life and teaching. It is the kind of success that is not universally recognised as such. ~Jesus was both admired and hated. Success does not necessarily mean popularity. Some admired him: ‘There’s never been anything like this’. Others hated him: the Pharisees said, ‘It’s nothing but hocus-pocus. He’s probably made a pact with the Devil’. ~As #followersofJesus, you also may be both admired and hated. ~In his Gospel, Matthew sets out the success of Jesus’ ministry. He summarises, ‘Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the #goodnews of the kingdom and healing every disease and illness’. ~In word and action Jesus ushered in the #kingdomofGod, bringing the reality of God’s rule and presence into the lives of those around him. This is what Jesus-style success looks like and this is what you and I are called to emulate. ~To achieve Jesus-style success you, like the twelve disciples, need to model your life on Jesus and share his vision. 🗝️Favorite Passage(s)🗝️: Psalms 8:1‭-‬7‭, ‬9 KJV Matthew 9:16‭-‬17‭, ‬37‭-‬38 KJV #youversion #bibleinoneyear #god #bibleinoneyear2017 #servehim #harvestisplenty #fixyoureyesonhim #bible #god #readthebible #scripture #bibleinayear #accountable #jesus #biblechallenge #bibleinoneyearchallenge2017 #everyword  #christianlife #godspromise #blessings #needjesus #repent #servantheart #successingod #laborersarefew
