It’s not about me

While I was reading the latest blogpost by Evangelist Daniel Kolenda he quoted something that just struck me and I really liked it and I wanted to share with you guys:

Francis Schaeffer said, “Each generation of the church in each setting has the responsibility of communicating the gospel in understandable terms, considering the language and thought-forms of that setting.”

Reminded me of the fight we sometimes give our church leadership because we resist change and want things our way (control) and the way that is in our particular comfort zone instead of looking at those that are coming in and in need of salvation and saying preach the gospel any way the Lord leads, use any type of music that will stir their souls, use any format that will help bring them to Christ because truly “it is not about me.”
