It’s the great command of Christians to spread the Good News of Christ to the world.

We want this to lead to success - a growing church, people feeling happy and being kind and showing love.

So often, this is not the case.

Often, our good intentions are met with resistance.

Saul was driven out of where he was preaching.

This work we have as Christians does not come with a guarantee of success.

Does this mean we shouldn’t try?

Of course not.

What we should do is trust in God - and avoid measuring success with what the world views as traditional success.
