Dear pastors, let’s set up an appointment with our Eye Doctor. As He looks at us, let’s receive His assessment of how we truly look at Him.

Do not only investigate the success or failure, the momentum or monotony, the victories or defeats of our group goals. Let’s each study our own spiritual life. Investigate growth.

Scrutinize condition.

Explore potential.

Conclude, not by placing blame or feeling shame, but by choosing to return to basics.

Pray, study, witness, worship. Attend, care, refuse to gossip.

Think about the nearby faraway God. Confess to the local global Listener.

He hears. So let’s be honest. And let’s keep the heart of Christ.
