Vintage message from December 22, 1996.
“That’s another question I have to ask myself: would I allow for another person to step into my ministry if God asked, and move on? It’s a question I believe we’ve always got to be asking ourselves: God is there something more You want me to do and is there someplace else You want me to be? Or do I find my importance here? You know, I’m not important. What I do is not important, because Whom I speak about, Whom I teach about is important. Jesus is important. The Holy Spirit is important. Gathering people together for fellowship to me is important. And if I do it…or some total stranger does it, it’s just important to me that it’s being done…
And that’s the other thing that I find for all of us, if we could come to that place of realizing…that we are simply and only God’s chosen instrument. It makes preaching the gospel, it makes sharing our faith with someone else so much easier.”
