We do NOT praise the trumpet, nor the piano, nor the drums after they have been professionally played in a concert. We do NOT give recognition to the dump truck, nor power tools, nor blueprint for their roles in the construction of a building. We do NOT interview the scalpel, suture, nor x-ray machine in the roles they played in saving a life… for they are the instruments. Yet many desire these things when they think they’re doing God’s Will by preaching, evangelizing, singing, etc…. this is an illusion of power sought yet never found.
We are but instruments in ministry. Even Christ acknowledged this. He IS the path that leads to God, the proof of God’s truth and the life everlasting, yet in all of this, He knew His place.
(John ch.14:v.6, Luke ch.18:vs.18-19)
