Limping to Heaven


Can’t help it. Arthritis.

But most likely, it’s from years of wrestling with God.

“Grown up pastors walk with a limp,” writes Jerod Wilson.

“They’ve had their feet knocked out from under them at some point and discovered that God is still good all the time.

“Grown up pastors know that the gospel is the only power to save, and that it is of first importance, so in their maturity they’ve grown weary of putting on airs or putting on shows or putting on millstones.”

I’m still growing up.

We all need to remember that “it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” (Philippians 2:13)

A sign of maturity in the Christian life is to realize it’s not about us.

So I will continue to wrestle with God. And limp along…

…with you.

John Wimber, founder of the Vineyard Movement, said, “Never trust a leaders without a limp.”

You can trust me.

Can I, you?
