Striving to Love More

I have read Rick Joyner’s The Vision many times and I am impacted by his words every time I read them. This paragraph quoting Jesus is particularly meaningful to me just now.

“In My kingdom, authority comes from who you are, not your title. Your ministry is your function, not your rank. Here rank is earned by humility, service and love. The deacon who loves more is higher than the apostle who loves less. On earth, prophets may be used to shake the nations, but here they will be known by their love. This is also your call- to love with My love and serve with My heart. Then we will be one.”

How different things would be if we all viewed authority from this perspective. Authority issues continue to plague our work and ministry.
