Hi subscriber,

Here's a thought, a quote, and a resource I wanted to share with you this Thursday.
A THOUGHT

I know three church planters who failed. The church didn’t turn out as hoped, and they decided, for various reasons, to pack it in.

All three are gifted, capable, and godly.

I have a hard time actually believing they failed. Only heaven will reveal the impact of their ministry, even though it doesn’t seem like much by earthly standards.

I was struck by these words by Aaron Armstrong: “Faithfulness, simply, is embracing and obediently using what you’ve been given according to God’s wisdom and grace. To say it even more simply, faithfulness is obedience — obedience to God’s commands, calling, and gifting — and obedience is success.”

My planter friends are anything but failures.
A QUOTE

“Coming before God in quietness, and waiting on him in silence, often can accomplish more than days of feverish activity.”

(A. W. Tozer)
