Easter is right around the corner. I heard a pastor say this past weekend, "Easter for the church is like Super Bowl for the world." Seriously, how true is that? Attendance is high, church leaders and volunteers are on top of their game, and the service is one big banner lifting Jesus' name really high.
We spend a lot of time preparing, praying, and working towards the perfect service. And because we focus so much time prepping, we sometimes lose sight of Jesus that week. We end up focusing more on ministry and the works. Friends-Pastors and Pastors' wives, don't forget this week as you put all the finishing touches on your Easter services that all of this is to glorify Him, and point people to Jesus. Don't miss the purpose because you are too focused on the perfect service for Easter 2015.
Let Jesus consume your every thought this week, not the service. Take time to spend with Jesus, so through Him you can glorify Him in your ministry. You got this. Relax. The service is going to me more than great. Remember this service is ALL about Him, and pointing people to the cross. What it isn't about is the little perfections, and minor details you get stressed about.
Enjoy this week.
