Neill: leadership of the church

Sunday, May 22, 2011
    Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.
    —Acts 8:4 (NIV)
    Is the leadership of the world-wide church in the hands of men and women who know how to lead others one by one to Jesus Christ? We are so concerned with planning and administration that there is a danger lest we allow these things to serve as an excuse for not doing the one thing on which all else depends.
    ... Stephen Neill (1900-1984), “The Church in a Revolutionary World”, in International Review of Mission, v. XXXVI, p. 451 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, do not let our focus stray.
