Savior or Sinner?

“Over time, our status—in our churches and in our heads—can grow to an unhealthy level.

It may also cause us to believe the key to successful ministry is always having the right answers and advancing our knowledge and skills so that everyone who seeks our help can receive it.

This need to maintain our position as the expert can, ironically, prevent us from acquiring the quality that the very best Christian leaders possess—empathy.

We are happy to play the role of savior, but we don’t want to be identified as sinners.”

  1. Sometimes we forget the very important words of our TRUE and ONLY Savior and especially when we have been involved in ministry for any length of time! We ALL need to be reminded of what true discipleship really is.

    Luke 22:24-26, Now there was also a dispute among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ “But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves.”

    Matthew 23:11-12, “But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

    Great thoughts Brother Wayne! God bless as you CONTINUE to remind us of what truly is important!
