I'd rather be part of a hurting, struggling church... being driven to You...

November 1, 2006

I'd rather be part of a hurting, struggling church that is coming into an attitude of repentance and humility and obedient submission to God, and seeking to be filled and taught and used according to God's will, by the work of the Holy Spirit in us; than to be part of a big, successful, admired church with great programs and numerous outreaches, and perfect worship music, and receiving fame and glory from all kinds of people - but sitting there in smugness and self-satisfaction (and yes, without even realizing it, becoming proud and arrogant and worldly!). Thank You, God for the struggles that drive us to You. Amen!
