Two Axioms for Effective Ministry
Distractions dilute desire. Don’t kid yourself. Distractions can derail even the most focused person, especially in a church setting where so many members are still in spiritual diapers and expect the pastor to do everything spiritual for them.
Focus fuels desire. The more a person focuses on something, the more that person desires to see it fulfilled, and the quicker that person pulls the trigger and takes action. When desire for something consumes a person’s every waking moment, odds are something is going to happen, either good or bad.
Desire to see the Kingdom fulfilled on earth is what separates the effective from the mediocre pastor.
With all your heart, do you desire to see the Kingdom come on earth?
