Leadership is broken because leaders are unbroken
Is Your Altar as Big as Your Heart?
When I was twelve years old I put my heart on God’s altar. It happened on a Sunday morning when Mr. Stewart, the superintendent of the junior high Sunday school department in my church, exhorted us mightily to give our all to the Lord. I don’t remember what he said, just that he spoke with intense passion about giving our all to Christ. As I listened I remember distinctly thinking, “That’s what I thought it’s all about. That’s what I did when I trusted Jesus as my Savior.” I became a Christian in my kitchen with my mother when I was five years old, and it was the real thing. My heart was on the altar for Christ and at twelve I made sure it would stay there.
But that was not the end of it. It couldn’t be.
