Being Found Faithful

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to hang out with Benny Proffitt, the founder and national director of First Priority which is the organization that has and continues to help define who I am and where God desires to use me in ministry.  It was a great time of encouragement and challenge.  One thing that he said was that “Duty is our responsibility, and results are God’s responsibility.”   It is our role to be faithful to where God has us and where He has given us to serve.  We should not get caught up in how many people show up from week to week or what results we see here and now. Our focus should be on being faithful and doing our best with who God has given us to minister too.  I want to be found faithful to what God has called me to do and to be.  I want to receive a “Well done” from my King when I stand before Him and give account for how I spent my life, time, and gifts.  Lord, make me into a man of you who gives his all for Your glory and fame alone!
