In Matthew 7:26-27, Jesus said " But everyone who hears these sayings of mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."

Here in Mexico, I have been astonished at the missionaries who have arrived, failed, and left. Meanwhile, other Christians are being blessed with successful ministries. The envy and bitterness towards Christians who are being blessed by God is something that I saw in the US when I taught Christian school.

Jesus promised, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." Success in Christian service is GUARANTEED to anyone who will follow Jesus. When a Christian fails, therefor, it is going to come down to disobeying Him. I'll be posting a couple of times a week on three Principles of Failure, all of them involving disobedience to Jesus' words, that will explain why so many Christians fail in their service.
