Have people ever expected you to be a superman or superwoman, doing spectacular things in the name of ministry? The model marriage, model children, model walk with the Lord to start out with. Followed by ministry in the church, the community, and maybe on a national level. What about career success? Sometimes as a leader we can fall into this temptation and then we can’t stop talking about what WE are doing in these areas. And when new opportunities come to be spectacular we can’t wait to share. When we receive glory from people we can also give glory to people. As I read about Jesus in the Bible I see that our purpose is to show Him off. And glorify Him in all that we do. The bottom line is anything worthy of praise is because of Him. Even my love is tainted and He enables me to love. I don’t even love God on my own…We love because he first loved us. Every person that I lead to Christ…No one comes to Christ unless he first draw them. When I am tempted to be spectacular I pray I will remember Isaiah 42:8 “I am God. That’s my name. I don’t franchise my glory.” Have you ever seen this in your own life or another?
