There are lots of people in the church that claim Christianity yet are no true converts. Was listening to a Charles Stanley sermon yesterday and he spoke about many that profess Christ, yet have not repented and have not changed their ways. One such example of someone that may not be saved is this author Jon Acuff You read his chapter on Success and its all his opinion and his experience with ZERO to NO scripture involved. But read Charles Stanley's book on Success and you get scripture, Bible, and a God focused view on success, which is doing what God has called you to do, and being what God has called you to be. Acuff's books sell like hotcakes and get lots of positive reviews on Amazon, but his books are all about his opinions and experiences with little to no scripture involved. So I believe the Bible defines success as this. Doing what God has called you to do, and being what God has called you to be. God sets our goals and creates our paths and we are to follow them. When we have Godly goals, God is behind our goals and is committed to our success. For example I have the following goals this year. 1) Read my Bible through 2) Stay in Phone contact with family every week 3) Stay committed to doing evangelism and growing in the Lord 4) Get a better paying job so I can pay down debts & save. These are Godly goals and so God is behind them. But if I create me type goals that will benefit me alone, then God is not behind them.
