While King Jesus was here on earth, He made perfect use of His time, knowing that it was limited. Keep in mind, we only have a certain amount of time to complete our purpose. I should I say that you only have a certain amount of time. Now it is personal.
Finally, the greatest failure in this life is being successful in the wrong assignment. You see this every day if you take the time to read and observe. Success alone isn't enough because you can be sincerely wrong. Faithfulness alone is not enough, because you can be faithful to the wrong belief system as so many have. Commitment alone isn't enough because you can be committed to the wrong cause, as so many are. Succeeding in the wrong assignment is, therefore, failure.
The Lord God isn't impressed with your sincerity, faithfulness, commitment or even your success, unless you are pursuing the right assignment or purpose for YOUR life, His assignment. Stay connected to Him. Jesus made it very plain:
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
Abide in the vine, for anything else is failure.
