The Iceberg of Ministry

Growing up as a pastor’s kid and now being a pastor myself, something I’ve learned about ministry is the crucial importance of maintaining a healthy, growing relationship with the One we proclaim. Here’s a few thoughts on this:

  • Like an iceberg, our spiritual lives (what is between us and God) should always outweigh our public lives (our ministry).
  • Don’t allow ministry to make the spiritual commonplace – keep that healthy awe of God.
  • We will only give out in ministry what we have allowed God to put in through prayer and study.
  • A pastor apart from a walk with God is simply a passionate motivational speaker.
