- Samuel Proctor - "What Is Our Standard for Success" (October 9, 1994)
Drawing from parable of the rich ruler, Proctor preaches that we must measure ourself to the standards not of our own making nor the world's, but God's standard. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 03:58. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 30:57.
Key quotation: But when you measure yourself by the standard of Christ, you become prepared to make that kind of sacrifice, which according to the conventions of this world may seem so supreme, But in your faithful discipleship it seems only what God wants you to do. Do you know that that was 1939? And here it is 1994 and for all of these 55 years I’ve been trying hard to measure myself by the standard of Christ I cannot claim any more perfection than that young ruler. But I’m trying to hold Christ as my standard. And many of you are doing the same thing. May God be praised. Amen.
