Folly in the House

His Church, "the pillar and ground of the truth." [1 Timothy 3:15]

It is called FOOLISHNESS to think because you are a pastor you know all things and you can do all things. It is a delusion of the mind, which does not come from heaven. It is from the very pit of hell. We all need to do a reality check. Our place is to focus on where our anointing lies, and allow other's anointing to come in and make up for where we are weak. There is nothing wrong, under God's heaven, in being weak. It is a mere reality of being human.
"We were ensnared by the wisdom of the serpent; we are set free by the foolishness of God." — Saint Augustine
The body grows by that which EACH joint supplies. It is not by that which the pastor supplies alone, nor that which the church leadership does on its own. It is by that which EACH joint supplies. [Ephesians 4:16] So, wake up Dear Pastor. Wake up dear church. Wake up and live. Wake to your calling. Wake up to your place. Release people to their callings. Release people to their placings. Release people to contribute and exercise their parts in the body.
"If all Christians acted like Christ, the whole world would be Christian." — Mahatma Gandhi
The church is not about hero worship, creation or maintenance of celebrity status. The church is all about Christ. May He be exalted and every other thing and or person be dethroned. Let us lift Jesus up. For only when we do will He draw all men unto Himself. We got work to do church. Let's get about it.
"Remove the centrality-of-Jesus-Christ message from ministry and meetings, and you can forget church life or organic meetings. He must be the center of everything...not in lip service, but in the dynamic experiential whole." — Gene Edwards
God graces and enables us according to His calling and placement upon our lives. He has called each of us to espouse definite dimensions of His person. Therein is our strength. Therein is our greatness. Therein is our relevance.
