Heading where I am looking

Church leadership very often seems to get very complicated with tensions tearing at your mind.

1. We are in the people business. But the more people you have the more opinions on how church should be you have.

2. Church is the hope of the world. But there are countless ideas and initiatives that all seem worthwhile. Its easy to become schizophenic.

3. We are called to equip God's family. But it sometimes keeps us away from our own family.

Don't get me wrong I love what I do. But I must realise that outside of my personal relationship with Jesus there are thre things I must do: focus, focus, focus.

The question is what to focus on. The following quote I read on Perry's blog today helped me.

"Left to itself an organization will always look inward–that is why LEADERSHIP with a heart for people is so important in the church."

I must not and will not forget that church exists for people that have YET to meet Jesus.
