Doug Goins, pastor at Peninsula Bible Church in California has written...


There are also many temptations that can capture our attention, trying to seduce us with false promises. There are many books (in Christian book stores), video tapes, and seminars that will tell us what we can add to God to have success in ministry: how we can have more presence and power in our leadership, how we can attract and hold more people in our ministry, how we can make our ministry more enjoyable and fulfilling for us personally. There are many temptations, even when we’re trying to do the Lord’s work, not to rely on the Lord.

From Paul Decker’s Sermon: What a Way To Go!
