the one thing

The one thing I would say is to never stop God from working on your heart just because you’re up the front leading people in worship.

We often start out on this journey like a broken-down car in need of repair. Most of us want to get the car totally sorted and fixed before we start the journey. But God says, “Start the journey anyway; you’ll find the service stations and mechanics on the way.” As we continue on the way into Him, periodically He pulls us aside and services us, making us more and more like His Son. That’s how this God-life works. But there’s a real temptation when we become leaders to think that simple because we’re at the front leading, our motors are all sorted out and we don’t need any more fixing. Of course that’s not true. Leadership might mean we get to learn some of our lessons out front in public, but it is never an excuse to stop learning and growing.
