Jesus, Friends and The Ministry

03 Sep

In a recent sermon, John Piper said ,” Jesus never intended that the enjoyment of his presence would replace the enjoyment of the presence of Christian friends…Christ always intended that your friendship with him would be the heartbeat of your friendship with others.”

Piper then addressed some of the relational pitfalls that often accompany friendship for those in ministry.

Consider these words of wisdom I extracted from the many points he made.

rgh

> Christian ministry is relationally hard.

>Friends in the ministry can let you down and never care for you again.

>Good friends in ministry can let you down and still be good friends.

> Nevertheless Jesus is the only totally reliable friend…and the only flawless friend.
