How successful is our ministry from God’s perspective?

“Christians who judge successful ministries by external statistics such as attendance figures, membership, baptisms, and offerings should seriously rethink their criteria in light of Jesus’ words here. God judges the greatness of his servants by searching their hearts, examining their inner attitudes, and seeing deeds done in secret. Doubtless, his evaluations of who most honors him will invert a substantial majority of his people’s evaluations.”

Craig L. Blomberg, Matthew, Nashville: Broadman Press, 1992, p. 122.
