I started reading Scatter this morning and almost didn’t put it down. Seriously, I read 18% of the book before I left for work. Andrew Scott gets ministry.
Here are a couple of quotes:
“A new paradigm is needed – one in which we recognize that all of life is where every believer gets to be a “full-time” follower of Jesus.”
“This generation has learned to worship in the church but seems unwilling to worship in the world.”
“A good measurement of true compassion is resulting action.”
For a while now, I’ve seen what many consider “ministries” – like greeting, ushering, etc., not as ministries, but as things you do because you belong – much like setting and clearing the table at a family gathering – not a chore or your purpose in the family, but something you do because you are part of a family.
Your ministry is how you make a difference in a world that doesn’t know Jesus. What is your ministry? Are you satisfied?
