I heard a question Friday night, and I’m still thinking about it. I was talking to my pastor, and he related part of a conversation he’d had with another pastor regarding ministry.
And the question was this:
“When was the last time you were inconvenienced for Jesus?”
I can’t think of a time when I’ve done something for someone, believer or otherwise, without first considering whether or not I had the time, or the money, or whether or not I liked the person who needed the favor.
I don’t think I’ve allowed myself to be inconvenienced for Jesus.
Because even after all I’ve been through, and all the healing I’ve been blessed enough to receive, I’m still self-centered much of the time.
Because it’s all about me.
Not about Him, and not about serving in His name. It’s not about doing things sometimes just because they’re right things, and they need to be done.
It’s about what’s convenient to me, and about what I need.
I hope to have the chance to be inconvenienced again soon.
