A common theme of my show is “keepin’ it real.”  I was impressed with how Jeremy Camp opened up about what success looks like for him.

Keith:
Jeremy, when you look at where God has brought you in your life and the platform you have in your life, was there ever at time you had a roadblock or things got in the way of the success that God has blessed you with?

Jeremy Camp:
Oh, there are lots of distractions – and honestly, it can be easy in this industry for people to say “build your kingdom, build your brand” over and over again until it really got to the point that I said to God – and I talked about this a lot in my last record, where I was going – “Lord, I can’t do that. I have to be doing this to build your kingdom, or I’m out.  This is not about us, it’s not about me.” So yeah, those distractions were “make sure your numbers up” – it can get into your head. For me, what I realized what determines success is if we are faithful with what God has given us. Success in the world’s eye is “oh how big were the numbers?” When success in God’s eyes is “how have you been faithful with what I have given you?”

Keith:
Yes, if you’re faithful with little you will end up ruling over much.

Jeremy Camp:
Exactly.

Keith:
And so that’s the blessing of God.

Jeremy Camp:
That’s exactly right.
