GIVING UP YOUR PERSONAL RIGHTS FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL
Let me begin with a question: What is more important to you, your personal/spiritual/ministry rights, or the integrity and advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
Now, don’t be so quick to say, “the integrity and advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Why do I say that?
The fact is, over several decades in the ministry I have discovered that there are not as many Christians and church leaders as you might think that walk the walk when it comes to laying aside their legitimate human and spiritual rights for the sake of the Gospel. Yes, many pastors preach it on Sundays, but in actuality, how they live is often quite different.
