Thoughts these season.. who am i and spiritual success

1. Are we so concerned with what others think that we miss being who God created us to be?A good question posted by Rob Bell's nooma productions this is just the preview of his topic and i want to watch the rest.. but it does stir allot of memories when i was a kid in search of who i am..



2.Oswald Chamber's warning against spiritual success..
"In Luke 10:20 , Jesus told the disciples not to rejoice in successful service, and yet this seems to be the one thing in which most of us do rejoice. We have a commercialized view— we count how many souls have been saved and sanctified, we thank God, and then we think everything is all right. Yet our work only begins where God’s grace has laid the foundation. Our work is not to save souls, but to disciple them. Salvation and sanctification are the work of God’s sovereign grace, and our work as His disciples is to disciple others’ lives until they are totally yielded to God. One life totally devoted to God is of more value to Him than one hundred lives which have been simply awakened by His Spirit."

These 2 points are related in a way if we don't know who we are in God's eyes we will try to get our identity in our success..
