Not Called to Success

"I'm not called to be successful; I'm called to be faithful."
- Mother Teresa, in Henri Nouwen, Spiritual Formation, 29

As Jesus-followers we are freed from striving to make something happen. Instead, we are called to abide in Christ, who makes all things happen.

What we are to do, primordially, is trust Christ. All who trust Christ will live plentiful, fruit-bearing lives.
