As a pastor and leader of a growing congregation in North Central Washington I recognize a leadership tension in my life. It is the tension of public ministry vs. private preparation.
Far too often I can get caught up in the work of the Lord and neglect the Lord of the work. Today I was listening to a speaker who mentioned a few questions that leaders can reflect on daily. Here they are
1. Did the Bible live through me today?
2. Did I get to bed on time or get up on time?
3. Did I disobey God over anything?
It is not enough for me to be a full time preacher and a part time disciple, I must be a full time disciple and let my time with Jesus impact my calling.
