Let’s Follow Jesus, Not Superstar Faith Leaders

It is one of the strengths of our American culture that we have learned how to make everything bigger and better. It is one of the weaknesses of the American church that we apply this same mentality to our faith leaders. We know how to turn servants into superstars!

How foreign this is to the New Testament mindset, where rising in leadership meant persecution more than popularity and rejection more than recognition. In the early church, as a senior leader, you could expect to be executed than exalted. Today, ministry often leads to stardom and success. How have we fallen so far?
