Most of us preachers are keenly aware of what we want God to do through us.
Usually, that involves things like growing a bigger, better church, one that prevails agaist the current culture of decline and advances the kingdom of God.
I’m OK with God doing something like that through me.
But is not the rather more important question what God is doing in me?
For example, am I cooperating with God as he endeavors to make me . . . .
more loving & less judgmental
more hopeful & less cynical
more content & less greedy
more forgiving & less conspiratorial
more like him & less like me?
Maybe, just maybe, if I allowed God to do more in me, then he’d be eager to do more through me.
