When people want to move toward becoming more incarnational and missional in their ministry, often their chief obstacles are church structures and leadership that is more focused on the institution than on the mission of Jesus. The reality for many of us is: “If I really did what Jesus wanted me to do, I might lose my job.”

What does that tell you about how far from our roots we as a church have come? Jesus is calling us back to the simplicity of following him. Sacrifices and costs are involved. Are you willing to follow Jesus regardless? Or is job security more important?
