Just Get Out of the Way

How can you be effective sharing the good news of Jesus as a pastor, a teacher, a mechanic, or just as a Christmas shopper? You know, it might not be as hard as you think. We serve a God who has been making himself known for all of eternity. Even creation screams his name. Ministry is not about making God relevant, he already is. Ministry and evangelism, instead, is about doing just enough to not get in the way.

You see, God doesn't need us, but he does choose to use us. Salvation is all about his work in our lives. We get into trouble when we try to make ourselves out to be more important than we are. Do enough to share the good news. Preachers, speakers, do enough to proclaim the truths of God's Word, but don't do too much. Make sure you don't get into God's way, instead, do just enough to remove obstacles that hinder people from seeing God, and then step back so that you too don't become an obstacle.

Let me know how this works for you, right now, we are seeing it work in an incredible way at Malvern Hill. God is working and we are getting to stand back and watch...Praise Him.
