Talking About Stuff That Matters
What Success Really Looks Like By Rick Warren — 09/27/2020 “For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.” Colossians 2:9-10 (NLT) Most people have no idea what success really is. Some people think it means you make a lot of money. But you can make a ton of money and be an absolute failure. Some people think it means being famous. But you can be famous and totally miss the point of life. So what is real success? The Bible says real success is being who God made you to be. It means you’re not trying to be somebody else or what your parents wanted you to be. You’ll only find real success when you spend your life as the person God created you to be. If you try to be somebody else in life, you are absolutely going to fail, because you can’t be anybody but you. Be who God made you to be. Be who you are in Christ. “For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority” (Colossians 2:9-10 NLT). God came to Earth in human form two thousand years ago so you could be made complete in Christ. That means you have everything you need through Jesus’ authority and power. If you look around, you’re going to notice that you may not have the same gifts, talents, or opportunities as other people, and that can be frustrating—if you think being a success is being somebody else. When you understand that a successful life is being who God made you to be, then you will be amazed at the things God will do through you! You lack nothing to be a success in life because success is being you. In other words, being successful in life means you are being yourself, the person God made you to be. Don’t get hung up on what other people think about you and instead focus on your audience of one: God. God shaped you and equipped you and, in Christ, has given you everything you need to be successful.
