What is a successful Christian? 2 Cor 4v7-18

Who is successful?  On what basis have you come to this conclusion?  What is a sucessful Christian?
Paul tells us it does not mean no suffering or everything being sorted.  He struggled in all sorts of ways, but kept his focus on knowing Christ.
Are we investing in what has eternal value?

- Is God enough?
Do you consider the blessings God gives your greatest inheritance?  Or is God himself the main thing?
Our relationship with God is eternal.  Is it enough for you, even if you don't see all the answers to prayer you want or even the things you think he has promised?

- Are you pouring out your life for other people?
Paul gave himself for others, not holding back.  He was investing in people who would be with him in eternity.
What about you?

- What kind of person do you want to become?
It's not what you do, but who you become - that's what you take into eternity.
What do you want people to say about you when they sit with you for half an hour?
