Driving Us to Our Knees

The Wise Master Builder (Part 14)

For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:9)

There’s a big difference between being told prayer is important and being placed in circumstances where we are compelled to pray. As master builders, disciplers, we quickly realize we are out of our league. The complexities of ministry and brokenness people become overwhelming. This realization drives us to our knees and we become utterly dependant on the Holy Spirit to work in and through us.

Prayer is not a requirement for ministry, it is a desperate need! If you feel like you’re doing well without prayer ask yourself these questions: “Are men and women being radically transformed in heart and mind or am I just getting them to do stuff or regurgitate a particular doctrine? If I stop propping them up spiritually, would they continue to walk with Jesus?” The answers to these questions can be quite revealing. It takes the supernatural work of the Spirit to develop others beyond mere conformity. Are you driven to prayer yet?
