One of my favorite churches to glean from is LifeChurch in Oklahoma. Their pastor has been doing a short blog series called “spiritual esteem” that has really got me thinking. It is easy to do ministry for people because a lot of ministry is trying to reach people for Jesus. However, I think Lifechurch’s pastor Craig Groeschel is right on when he says, “You are not what you did, what you do, or what you are going to do. You are who Christ says you are.” Check out his post here. I always find myself living in the moment and living for success in a human perspective, but not very often do I truly live for Jesus. It was a good reminder.
PS. Tomorrow I’ll post the final piece to “Church Politics”
