How should we measure success in our lives? The Scriptures are clear that success in the life of a Christian is simply becoming more like Jesus, and the way we measure that is growth in faith, hope and love. In the story of Mary in Luke 1:26-28, we see not only an example of faith but why we can have faith. Mary entrusts herself to a trustworthy God, and we are invited to do the same. The arrival of Jesus shows us that God trustworthy because He keeps His promises. We can entrust ourselves to a trustworthy God.
