We start the school year with visions, dreams, and hopes for what we will accomplish and how God might work.
But the end can look different than what we initially imagined. So how do we know if we are being successful in leading our movement? Here are some things to consider.
The apostle Paul defines success for himself and his disciple, Timothy, in 1 and 2 Timothy. In these epistles, Paul models a perfect authority, a humble heart, a right role, and a perseverance.
Read 1 Timothy 1:15-17 and 2 Timothy 1:5-12
Read 1 Timothy 1:5, 3:14-15, 6:12-14 and 2 Timothy 1:12, 2:3, 2:15, 4:6-8
Read 1 Timothy 1:3-4, 4:11-16 and 2 Timothy 2:1-3, 3:14-15
Read 1 Timothy 4:10, 6:12 and 2 Timothy 2:10, 4:6-8
Godly success comes in having a right authority, a humble heart, a right role, and a perseverance.
This type of success does not guarantee growing numbers, comfortable conversations, or stories to blog about.
But it does cause us to rest in who we are in God’s eyes.
God is in control and we aren’t. We can trust that by taking the initiative in the power of the Holy Spirit we can leave the results to God.
There are times of the year in which students have more time available and others when exams seep into every minute of their schedule. Here are some rhythms of the school year, and Cru ministry, that you will want to be aware of.
The steps to reach our vision are prayer, win, build, and send. We call this our Cru DNA.
