what our leaders should be asking

A few important questions that our church planting team should be asking in light  Habakkuk’s prayer.

.Habakkuk 3Habakkuk’s Prayer

LORD, I have heard of your fame;  I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD. 

Renew them in our day, in our time make them known…

.

What if fear or self interest didn’t restrict us?

What if the need for control didn’t overwhelm us?

What would God do?

If our own ministries were not the most important issue, what would it be like?

If “church” wasn’t all about us, our place, and our ways, but instead was about Jesus and what he wanted to do here on earth, what would He reveal of His heart?

What if it didn’t matter to us at all what was said about us-good or bad-and the only opinion that mattered was Jesus?

What would it be like?

What if we loved what Jesus loved?

 

What if we let God be God and we just be His people?

What if self-protection was not the issue, and we didn’t care about looking foolish?

What would God do?

Don’t you want to know?

Don’t you want to find out?

We only have these few short years to make these decisions of self sacrifice and faith… I pray that all the churches that have a heart to seek and respond to God would become supple in the hands of our  loving Father.
