And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3-4).
Yesterday was my last day at Pontiac Bible Church. Many people shared encouraging words of affirmation with us, and we walked away with a new appreciation for how God works. God chose to include us in his plan to minister to people at PBC—what a privilege! Yes, we endeavored to serve faithfully where he called us for the past six years, but God did all the heavy lifting. It was good timing as I read these words of Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel this morning. Almost as if God was reminding me, “Don’t start thinking you’re a hot shot because of all that’s happened in recent months. Remember the path to greatness.”
My prayer this week is that we will remember in our leadership roles that we are accompanying God on his ministry. We should be faithful in our service, but it is God who will accomplish the task. It’s kind of like going-to-work-with-Dad-day every day!
