11 Questions

Take two hours, examine yourself, and answer these 11 questions.

  1. Does your joy change when your attendance changes?
  2. Do you feel that God needs you and uses you because you are skilled?
  3. Do you consider yourself more righteous or less righteous than other Christians?
  4. Do you point to your success as God’s approval of who you are?
  5. Do the traditions that you are upholding hinder the work of the gospel?
  6. Do you worship your method as your mediator?
  7. Are you motivated by God’s glory or your title?
  8. Is winning what motivates you at the deepest level?
  9. Do you use the pressure of ministry to walk with God?  Do you walk because you love Him or because your forced to love Him?
  10. Does it matter to you that your ministry be “unique”?  Why do you want to be unique?
  11. Who other than Christ are you trying to be like?  Were you created to reflect them or reflect Christ?  Who are you serving, them or God?

Answering “yes” to these questions is not a good thing.  Watch what you worship.  Are the idols in your life or in yourself hindering the advance of the gospel?

    I’m feeling you on most of these questions. But my joy is definitely tied to attendance. Not ALL of my joy, but yeah, a part of it. Attendance is one (or many) of the indicators of effectiveness in reaching students. And if you plan for 60 students and 25 show up, my joy is affected. When I plan for 60 students and 85 show up, my joy is affected. How can it not be? Yeah, I can’t make it all about numbers. But numbers are a part of it.
