“For the sake of the kingdom of God, I am willing to give up ‘fill in the blank’. Give up a certain amount of spotlight, give up a certain amount of notoriety, give up a certain amount of authority, a certain amount of power. All my strengths are maximized and all my weaknesses are minimized in this setting.” Tweet: “For the sake of the kingdom of God, for the sake of a New Testament church that could come alive and see faith grow and love grow and hope grow in people’s lives who’ve been separated from God, for the sake of a dynamic community, I am willing to give up ‘fill in the blank’. And that was, give up a certain amount of spotlight, give up a certain amount of notoriety, give up a certain amount of authority, a certain amount of power. And yet, with that I get the actual effectiveness of a church. All my strengths are maximized and all my weaknesses are minimized in this setting.” https://bit.ly/2O1AWWI via @VanderbloemenSG
