A Penetrating Question
Not long ago I had the privilege of taking part in the Leader Development Consultation. Asian Access was one of the co-sponsoring organizations and it was a joy being there with so many global leader development specialists. Many were there from Asian Access teaching and facilitating various workshops and training sessions.
One highlight for me was connecting with Asian Access leaders and one encounter caught me by surprise: though it shouldn’t have! I was sitting next to Mike Hoisington, one of our faculty members who asked me this penetrating question,
“Joe, are you spending time in the Word?”
You gotta love Mike. He puts it right out there in front of everybody. We were in the main session hall, and he asked me straight and simple. Right in front of others… I love that! You see, Mike was asking a crucial question about the fruitfulness of ministry. It all boils down to our relationship with Christ. Mike cares about me, and he cares about Asian Access.
Why? Because this is so essential to ministry. Just read John 15.
So, how about you?
- Are you in the Word?
- Are you spending time with Jesus?
- Are you ALL IN with God?
- Are you abiding in Christ?
