In ministry we often try to get organized to function like a well oiled machine. There are a lot of churches out there who do it . . . and some even experience genuine conversion growth. But there is something about the Gospels (I just finished them in my reading though the Bible in a year plan) that points to the messy ministry of Jesus. Somehow his ministry did not receive consistent rapid growth. It was up and down. But Jesus willingness to step away from the sanitized life of the religious leaders and get his hands dirty left a mark on a generation who changed the world.
How can we get our hands dirty today in a way that will change the world?
