Brothers, We are not Professionals

We are servants, first and last (Mark 10:42-45; 2 Cor. 4:5; Col. 1:24-25).

And,

as under-shepherds, when we will have faithfully served those entrusted to our care, when the Chief Shepherd returns, we will receive that reward that most matters (1 Pet. 5:1-4).

So let’s quit acting as if we have been commissioned by the world.  On that note, let me highly recommend John Piper’s excellent Brothers, We are not Professionals.
