Agenda!

While preparing for our church Leaders Meeting, and thinking about the progress of CCC, I was reminded of something that Pastor Tim Jack, our National Leader, had written recently to us as church Pastors.
‘Everyone lives to an agenda. It may be written clearly and precisely, easy to follow and explain. It may be an unwritten agenda imprinted upon the subconscious mind, yet be as powerful as anything contained in a document. It may come from learning or instinct, or shaped by culture or experience but an agenda exists in every life. The question arises then as to who controls the agenda’
Pastor Tim reminded us that if Jesus had followed the agenda of the disciples, he, and they, would have remained in Capernaum where they had been accepted and had experienced great success. (Mark 1: 32 – 39)
But Jesus mission and purpose was also for the wider region and so He moves them on. In fact they were always on the move!
It is a principle of personal and church growth that believers allow the Lord Jesus – by the leading of the Holy Spirit – to set the agenda, and then willingly follow and move forward with Him. Certainly these are the steps that keep us by His side and in His will.
