If you’re anything like me you get caught up in wanting your ministry to get better and better and better and better and you spend a lot of time DOING Ministry but don’t spend as much time BEING WITH JESUS!! I’m so GUILTY of this!!
We get busy doing stuff FOR JESUS but neglect to spend time WITH JESUS!!!
LOVE JESUS more than ANYTHING ELSE!!
If we want our MARRIAGES to get better, SPENDING TIME WITH JESUS is a MUST!!
If we want to be the best PARENTS, SPENDING TIME WITH JESUS is a MUST!!
You can never SPEND ENOUGH TIME with JESUS!!
-One of the most important things you can do before you leave your house for the day is to SPEND TIME WITH JESUS!
-If we want to REFLECT JESUS in PUBLIC we must SPEND TIME with JESUS in PRIVATE!!
“Whatever you do don’t get these OUT of ORDER!!”
-Love Jesus First, then your Wife and Kids, then your Ministry!!
-Your FIRST MINISTRY that God gave you is your FAMILY!!
-Ministry starts at HOME!! Don’t lose your FAMILY trying to serve the CHURCH.
-“FAMILY is your #1 CONGREGATION”!! –Larry Osborne
-“LOVE your WIFE more than you LOVE the CHURCH. The church is JESUS’ BRIDE, not yours!” –Craig Groeschel
-“Don’t allow increasing ministry to decrease your intimacy, and don’t let your service exceed your worship.” –Doug Fields
The best thing you can do for your students and ministry is to love Jesus more than both of them.
New International Version (NIV)
8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. 10 I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death!!
