Last weekend Stacy and I headed to Minneapolis for the 2010 Desiring God conference. I am still processing some of the things we learned but I want to share at least one talk with all of you.
In a culture of church conference full of glitz and noise it was refreshing to be among the quiet and think hard about the things of God. But knowledge puffs up and we have to be careful how we approach it with humility and ultimately as a fuel for our worship of God. Francis Chan shared on humility and provided a word all Christians, ministry, lay and otherwise need to hear.
Chan reminds us to love and be heart-broken for the lost and in a world where we jump from issue to issue inside our cloistered communities of faith it is far too easy to remember God’s call to preach the Gospel to unbelievers and to pour out our love on our neighbors. I commend the Chan talk to you and pray God will stir something in you.
Watch it here.
