Idol-atry-ize-ing: Bad Fuel

Question for you pastors: Why do you need your churches to be big and successful? Why is it so important to you? Is it because you want to spread the fame and Kingdom of God and help people to experience a relationship with Jesus like you have?

Well, yeah, that’s probably some of it.

But, unfortunately, it’s probably not all of it. And this is where all this gets really dangerous.

For a lot of us, I think we get our identity all wrapped up in what we do for Jesus, instead of really understanding who we are and being secure in who we are in Jesus. And so we need our church’s to succeed … for wrong reasons. We’re running on bad fuel.

Maybe we’ve even made idols of our churches and our church growth? More next time…
