Rick Warren made a great observation during his address to the BGCT convention in Amarillo. (I’m trying to quote him verbatim, but i make no guarantees)
The Church is the only thing that will last. In 500 years, there won’t be any Microsoft or United States of America…but there will still be the Church.
Wrap your head around that. If you follow Jesus, then you are part of something that has endured and will continue to endure. How do we leverage that? How do we operate in that reality instead of trying to fight for what is ours?
