Chasing the 1%

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 11:22 pm

Luke 15:4 What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?

This word came to me today not so much as a challenge but as a reminder of what I’ve already heard from You.  In ministry I’m not to spend my time and energy on the 99% who are safe (and bleating).  I’m to leave them behind if necessary to chase after the 1% that are in real and eternal danger.  It’s so easy to go for mass approval but in the area of music at least I’ve come to acknowledge and embrace the fact that Your will comes first, even if it confuses, disturbs or annoys the safe sheep.

Lord help me to apply this to every part of my life: to chase after the 1%, regardless what the 99% think.
