Get out of the Way…..

Pastor Steve, president of our Every Nation Ministries, surprised us last Sunday by attending our 6pm service. He was with his wife Ms. Deborah and his son Johnny. When I heard he was coming, I offered to give him my preaching slot. I heard he gave a very powerful, convicting message that he blogged about. Click here to read his blog.

Anyway I ended up preaching but before I preached I ask him to come up and give a short message to the church. In his usual humble way, he uncredited ( if there is such a word) himself with the church plants happening in the Philippines. Before giving the pulpit back to me, Pastor Steve made a statement that struck me. He said, ” I know how to get out of the way and let other people take lead.”
