As you think about where God is at work in our Madison Campus church family do your thoughts follow a path to what God is asking of you? Are you serving Him in the way He asks? Are your time, talent and treasure being invested or are they being hidden?
As we are focused on finding someone to take the leadership position in our flock many are focusing on the attributes they would like to see, the qualities they feel we need, the strengths they feel are important. After all, we might reason, this selection will have an impact on many lives for years to come. While this is an important decision, we need to remember that this process is a two way street. While we are looking at men who have dedicated their lives to serving God where he has placed them, many of them are also examining us, evaluating our purpose, focus and mission.
So during this process, I encourage each of us to examine ourselves! What has God placed on your heart? More importantly, what are you doing about it? Gods work in these end times will not be finished in Madison by 3 or 4 preachers alone. This gospel will not be spread to the ends of the earth by those on the conference payroll only! No, it will take each and every soul reacting to the love of God to finish the work. So I ask you . . . Where’s your heart?!!!!
