Another temptation of success is to “keep doing what you’ve been doing.” Maybe God blessed your “seeker style ministry”… or your “small group outreaches”… or your “youth pizza, couples skating, lock-in parties.”
Just because God blessed something you did last year doesn’t mean that’s what He wants you to do this year.
The longer we do ministry, the harder it is to be open to change. And the more success we’ve had recently, the more we’re tempted to trust the model… instead of the Giver of the model.
If what you’re doing is working great now, ride the wave. But, stay open to anything new God wants to do through you.
How do you stay fresh and keep your growing edge?
