The Spiritual Danger of Success

There is a terrible spiritual danger involved in the receiving of any blessing. Success can easily cause us to forget God’s grace, because our hearts are desperate to believe that we can save ourselves. God-given victory can easily be used to confirm the belief that, in fact, we have earned the blessing for ourselves, and should receive the praise and glory for that success.

We need to remember that we are saved by grace when we fail. But we need to remember it much more when we succeed.
