So often in ministry things become a competition. If one church is doing a huge 5th Quarter event, then we want to do one bigger, better, and on the same night. Often times we treat the lives that we are trying to reach out to as medals to be won so that we can meet up with our buddies and talk about how large our ministries are. The problem with this mentality is:
- We should not be striving for growth through church transfer.
- If our motives are right, then we are all striving for the same common goal, the furtherance of the gospel of Christ. (Matthew 28)
- It’s not about numbers! You could have a million people and be an inch deep or, you could be miles deep and have no one. Ministry is about balance and Christ getting ALL of the glory.
