When Your Needle Hits Empty

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matt 11:28. Ministry hinges on leaders, but effective leaders are few and precious and many effective leaders fall. But before they fall, they burn out.

The Idolatry of Missions

Missionaries are like the church’s Special Forces, right? They go into enemy territory, sometimes covertly, tearing down walls for Jesus. They have special training, preparing them to serve in the darkest places around the globe. Missionaries are on the front lines of the Kingdom of Heaven, right? I’m sorry, but no.

How the Gospel Frees Us To Risk

I want Christ, but I too often want Him as a kind of quantifiable spiritual asset, as something I can always check to be sure of just as I can check my bank account balance or my cholesterol level. I want what God has promised, but I want power of attorney to execute those promises when I’ve determined I need them. That’s not what the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about.

4 Ways to Create a Work-Life Balance in Ministry

10 Reasons We Don’t Let Go

Jesus models for us a letting go of control, earthly power, and reputation. He empties Himself at the cross, trusting in the goodness and love of the Father. God intends that we follow the same path. Yet, in situations both the large and small, we find this incredibly difficult. Why?

Three Temptations Leaders Must Fight Daily

John Owen strongly challenged: “Be killing sin or sin will be killing you.” Overcoming temptation is active, not passive. Here are three temptations leaders must fight against daily.

4 Downsides of “This Is the Most Important Message Ever!”

Here are four downsides to every message, announcement, meeting, or event being the most important one in human history, ever.

The Challenge of Incompetence

If you remain in a leadership position long enough you will have to deal with incompetence in someone at some point. Whether that means reassigning someone, redefining their role, or letting them go, as a leader the only option not available is to allow the mission of the organization to suffer.

Recommitting to the Call

If you feel that this is the place God wants you to be at the moment, recommit yourself to your role and thank Him for being there for you. If not, ask God where He wants you to be.

Our attractiveness has much more to do with the depth of our relationship with God, the fruit of the Spirit growing from our lives and how we behave and interact with people.
