It seems like a church gets a new pastor and that pastor spends endless hours waiting to hear from God about the vision and purpose of that church. What should it be? What should it do? Blah, blah, blah.
Don’t worry about that. The Bible already tells you and God is probably wondering why you’re asking. Read the Great Commission. There you go. Do that. Go and love others. God will do the rest. Don’t think that your church is so special and has a unique, special purpose that no other church out there has. That’s not how God does it. God uses the church (which are all of God’s people) when they’re loving others. That is when God can do really cool stuff.
Problem solved. Get off your knees about this. Quit wasting time and go do it.
