Today's Message from Chip Brogden
"And He ordained twelve, that they should BE WITH HIM, and that He might send them forth to preach" (Mark 3:14).
You are called to be with Jesus. That is your calling. That is the primary thing, the highest ministry. Going forth to preach or doing anything else is of secondary importance. We should be with Jesus; after that, He might send us forth to preach. But before Jesus said, "Go into all the world" He said, "Be with Me."
The call of the Lord is not more important than the Lord of the call. The work of the Lord must not replace the Lord of the work. No amount of ministering FOR the Lord will make up for a lack of ministering TO the Lord. And knowing the Word of God does not necessarily mean that we know the God of the Word.
