The ministry today can be motivated either by a burning sense of wrong or by a grateful sense of high privilege. It is possible to build a church with the energy of a burning sense of wrong. There are angry Christians who don’t like the way things are going and will rally around someone who validates their anger. But is that the gospel at work?The apostles did not fuss and wring their hands and moan, “What’s the world coming to?” They gladly announced, “Look what’s come to the world!” Like Christ, they had a grateful sense of high privilege. And the impact was an explosion of joy that has been setting people free for 2000 years — and is showing no signs of fatigue. Ray Ortlund, Jr.
