It’s not always going to happen overnight, sometimes His promises take decades to come to fruition. This is why most people give up and move onto something else. A survey of 100 churches in a major Christian magazine stated that a pastor had to be pastoring for 18 years before he / she felt they were doing well in ministry, and on average a church had to reach age 15 before it started doing well. Nobody in their right mind would stick with something for 15 years or 18 years. Except people like Moses, King David, John the Baptist, etc…you get the picture.
Following God is hard. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
In October of 2013 we decided to cancel our monthly movie night for now. It drew the biggest crowds but that’s not what we are going for. To go deeper with God isn’t always fun, or quick, but it’s always worth it.
