EPISODE #74 – TRUST THE LORD TO BUILD THE CHURCH
The guys are wrapping up their discussion on the Six Irreducible Minimums for 2021 and offer some insights on the frigid cold weather, valentines dining with your spouse, year-round-shorts guy, and Jimbo helps clear up Bob’s misunderstanding of “King Cakes” and then they get down to talking about why we need to depend upon the Lord to build his church.
This can be a difficult one for us-especially as the normal measurements of success ebb and flow, rise and fall.
- Set your mind on the truth that regardless what happens–Jesus builds his church
- The normal measurements are important (attendance, buildings, budgets) but they are not only measurements that are important. “Numbers aren’t everything-but they are something.”
- Do the work of ministry: Pursuing God’s Kingdom, Preaching, Equipping, Discipling, Engaging the Community and then let God do his work at building the church.
- Focus on your “role” or “job” as the pastor there for that season. Some plow, some plant, other water and the Lord is the one who brings the harvest!
