Often we can be our own worst enemies (2 Timothy 2:25). Although this quote focuses on preaching, it can just as easily apply to serving. God does not just want people who can interpret, He wants people who live what they interpret. God does not just want people who can teach, He wants people who can practice what they preach. Every single one of us has fallen short of this at one time or another. Our hands or our mouths are saying one thing and our lives are not following suit, and we hinder our ministry. So, let me ask you one question. What can we do about it? The answer: “the difference lies in the formation of Christ within.”
