Had a great staff meeting yesterday, our first since our off-site retreat. Like I’ve said before, I’ve got a great feeling about our 2010 staff team; really sterling people. You know how one of the first questions people ask you is ‘what do you do?’ Well, my answer nowadays is that I’m responsible for leading a highly gifted team whose mission is to raise a revolutionary army that will change our continent in this generation!
In John 7:25-52, people’s preconceived ideas about Christ kept them from understanding and accepting him when He showed up. Result was that though they admired him (like many people today do), they didn’t experience the benefits of a relationship with him.
Lord, I pray that my preconceived ideas about who God is and how He should work will never keep me from understanding what You are saying to me. And I claim Your promise in verse 38. ‘Whoever believes in me…streams of living water will flow from within him’. May I not just experience God’s wisdom and power in overflowing measure today but also be a channel of that wisdom and power to my team and to others.
