Jesus never hurries

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

Jesus never hurries. This drives me crazy…I'm finally starting to realize the real question is, Can I move as slowly as Jesus moves? Getting rid of evil takes a lot of time. Preaching is never about what you or I make happen. It is always and only about what Jesus makes happen. And apparently Jesus is not in a hurry to get all the evil out of your congregation, is he?…Are you trying to fix your church or are you bringing it to Jesus?
