There has been many evangelists, ministers, pastors, elders, bishops in my life. Many of them have taken the time to express the amount of time they have been preaching, evangelizing, and ministering through sermons and testimonies and this will commonly impress the audiences, including myself at a time.
This changed when I started to focus a couple of scriptures:
- “The foolishness of God is wiser than men…”(1st Corinthians ch.1: v.25a)
- “For the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God…”(1st Corinthians ch. 3: v.19a)
How does this apply? Think of any man or woman that has told you at any time how many years he or she has been ministering in ANY form or fashion. Take each year and make it one gallon of water; for example, Pastor Creflo Dollar started the World Changers Church Ministry in 1986, so lets say he has been preaching 27 years, so 27 gallons, give or take.
Now lets say that the foolishness of God is represented by the amount of water in gallons that covers the earth at any given time which is around 326 MILLION TRILLION gallons, (326,000,000,000,000,000,000).
We have a LONG way to go, and so many wonders to experience with God. The possibilities are ENDLESS.
