• [I]f people can’t see the anointing on your life through your character, then don’t cheapen the gospel by wearing a title you don’t deserve. I’m not saying people shouldn’t use reverend, minister or even bishop to identify their roles in the church. But can we please dispense with the insecurity and the childish “I’m more important than you” appellations and get back to the simplicity of the gospel? We need to get over ourselves! I think Paul explained it perfectly: “Don’t cherish exaggerated ideas of yourself or your importance but try to have a sane estimate of your capabilities by the light of the faith that God has given to you.” ~N.H. Hoekes
