“We have somehow got hold of the idea that error is only that which is outrageously wrong; and we do not seem to understand that the most dangerous person of all is the one who does not emphasize the right things.”
–D. Martin Lloyd-Jones, Sermon on the Mount, 2:244
There is a lot of emphasis on family ministry these days, and this morning Sojourn’s student and family ministry team met for the first time. As a team, we’ve (Gary Almon, Jeremy Quillo, Dave Kidd, Ty Thorne, Jessica Bowman, and myself) been commissioned with the role of leading and caring for Sojourn’s families. BUT our prayer is that our ministry will NOT be merely about the family (though it is certainly right to love, care, and talk about families). Our ministry is first and foremost about the gospel–the good news of God’s kingdom accomplished through the work of His Son by the power of His Spirit. We are dangerous if we emphasize the the wrong thing. So, may the flavor of our ministry together be forever only gospel! Please pray for us that this will be our aim and end.
