Monday's Ministry Musings: Dethroning the Mini-king

"Your words are always in pursuit of some kind of kingdom. You are either speaking as a mini-king, seeking to establish your will in your relationships and circumstances; or you are speaking as an ambassador, seeking to be part of what the King is doing."
-Paul Tripp, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making, page 73.
We must ever keep this truth in mind when we come into the pulpit and in the relationships we forge within our congregation. I have been far to guilty of building my mini-kingdom (of course for the sake of Jesus) than just seeking to be a part of what the King is doing. Lord help me!
