Equipped To Serve

I had lunch with a great guy yesterday. He has been a guest in our church for a couple of months and I am enjoying getting to know him. Over Mexican food we talked about God, theology, and life in general. During our conversation he brought up Randy Pope of Perimeter Church in Atlanta. When I got back to the office I pulled one of Pope's books off the shelf. I found a marked quote that speaks to our desire to study for the sake of ministry.

Much in the way that eating creates no appetite for exercise, so too I have found that Bible study and prayer alone do not create mission-oriented Christians. But, just as exercise creates a desire for food and drink, mission-related activities create an insatiable thrist and hunger to feed on God's Word. Randy Pope
