Worship & Church Planting Missteps

Mark Batterson made a great "quotable quote" on his blog, today:

"I feel like one of Satan's tricks is getting us to focus on what's wrong with us instead of worshipping what's right about God. It's one of my worship mantras, ... don't let what's wrong with you keep you from worshipping what's right with God."

Read the full article here. This is a great quote about worship...and to a certain extent, church planting.

Sometimes church planters spend so much time doing autopsies on their latest failure that they forget to learn from it, get up, dust off and keep following the God who never fails.

Faith without risk is safe - but usually pretty lifeless. Cuts and scars prove you've at least been in the game.

Good stuff. I love that last sentence. Our God is not safe - that's why following Christ is so exciting. God is wild. He's unpredictable. He's able to do infinitely more than we could ever even dream of. And He asks us to be a part of it all. I don't know about you - but I'm stoked! Play Ball!
