Check the Motive

Do we preach the Gospel... Minister to others... Teach doctrine... because we love God and souls, or because we want to be right?

Let it begin with me.  I am checking my motives in 2014.  I am asking God to give me a yearning for souls like never before.  It's so easy to get caught up in the routine of ministry and service that we forget the true purpose.

We argue, rebuke and correct, but why?  Is it because we are hurting for the souls that are lost and so desperately want to see them saved?  Or is it because we don't want to be challenged?  Is it because we must be right?  Is it because we deserve respect, and their disagreement doesn't fit the bill?  Selah.

Check the motive... ORDER IN THE CHURCH!
