Busier Than Jesus

John Bishop wrote a blog for the National Outreach convention entitled, Are You Busier Than Jesus?" He said,


There is nothing wrong with serving. Service is a hallmark of great leadership, but there is a big lesson here:  "Our activity for God has to be the response of intimacy with God."  So often we get this backwards.    One of the biggest things I am doing in the next several weeks is letting go of ministry details that have caused me to be distracted unnecessarily.  Sometimes as leaders our activity becomes our identity, but who we are, is always more important than what we do.


Are you busier than Jesus? If so, why? Does God have a better plan? What might it be?  Start with intimacy with God. Don't start with "less busy." If you don't know what that is or how to do it, ask.
