More good stuff from Pastor T.

Thabiti Anyabwile cautions pastors to be careful how you build because "whatever you do to build the church is what you'll have to do to keep the church." He writes:

So here's a plea. Please, please Lord build your church on "boring" preaching and "regular" personalities owned and fired by your Holy Spirit, so that your people will find excitement and emotion that comes from the truth and their affections will rest on You rather than the earthen vessel that proclaims your Name.

Amen to that! And may those of us in the pews stop valuing feelings and entertainment over the ordinary means of grace.
