'If you don't feel worthy in Christ, or you look to yourself for your worth, then you shouldn't lead God's people. Your leadership will be joyless, complaining and oppressive. You'll hide, rather than being vulnerable. You'll fear exposure. You'll minimize sin. You'll condemn others to boost your own self-image. The fruit of your ministry will be other legalists...
But if you do trust in Christ, you will be - as you always were - one sinner pointing other sinners to the source of grace; one hungry beggar telling other hungry beggars about the bread of life.'
Tim Chester, Captured by a Better Vision, p.88.
