Always Wanting More

Rick Warren and ObamaMuch of the Institutionalized Church today is spellbound by the greedy drive that continually seeks for more and more. And it is all because of the fact that many of our church leaders have never learned the basic life lesson of contentment.

 

 

 

Over the years pastor after pastor has fallen because of it. One had a very successful ministry that quickly grew from nothing to one of the largest churches in town. The church’s rapid growth was the result of the fact that it had built up an evangelical outreach ministry that flourished in a big way. Because so many people were getting saved, everyone in town from every church imaginable brought friends to these events. Many of these guests were saved as a result, but they would eventually drift off to the churches that their friends attended. This bolstered many youth groups throughout the city.

The pastor of the host church led a spirit-filled congregation of servants who advanced their ministry upon the belief that they should to trust God for their growth and finances. After a while, though, the pastor decided to change directions. He was filled with covetousness. Even though his own church was still prospering from the outreach ministry, he began to feel envy and resentment because he was feeding other churches. Because his church was financing the whole ministry, he wanted all of the pot, not just part of it. He was also discontent with the church that he had. It was big enough, but in his mind not bona-fide.

Because of his envy he shut down the evangelistic ministry and left the denomination that he was in while completely changing the format of the church. The church faltered from that point on. Eventually coveting got the best of him and he fell into sin, which ended his marriage and his ministry for good.

Another pastor led a successful church in town. Through the years he had managed to move his church to the outskirts of town and build a big beautiful campus. He was a wise businessman and was able to get the entire campus constructed with absolutely no dept to the congregation. However, the immense facility lacked one thing, a full-fledged sanctuary. Consequently, the church body had to temporarily meet in the fellowship hall. In spite of this inconvenience, ministry flourished and the church grew daily.

TOlive Drive Churchhe congregation was founded on a rich history of tradition and the task of erecting a sanctuary was a very important mission. However, rather than waiting on God to provide the funds for the worthy endeavor, the pastor brought in growth consultants to help him raise money for the project. A lot of manipulative behavior rose out of this that eventually enraged the congregation. The sanctuary was completed, but the contention over it rose with each passing week. It was not long before the pastor, who had faithfully and diligently served the congregation for decades, was forced prematurely into retirement. As a result he never had the opportunity to fully enjoy what he had worked so hard to build.

To this day, though magnificent, the sanctuary has remained a point of contention in that body. The church has never been the same since as enrollment consistently has fallen every year. The church remains a shell of its former self.

The lesson is that covetousness leads to our ruin while contentment opens the door to more than we could even imagine. As Paul stated, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Phil 4:13 MKJV) As the fall of Lucifer clearly demonstrates, covetousness will lead us to our end. But in contentment there is strength and anything for God’s glory can be attained.

The key to the worship of God lies in contentment. Only those who are solely satisfied in Him will come before Him in thankfulness for who He is and what He has done. The pastor who is always searching for more will never be a worshipping pastor. He will be filled with too much covetousness to acknowledge the provisions he has been given. He will not lead a worshipping congregation either. His flock will be filled with the same strife and contention that drives the church leadership, as together they entertain themselves with their constant pursuit of more and more never to be fulfilled. They will seek God only for what He can do for them rather than praising Him for that which He has already given. You cannot worship the Creator when your focus is on worshipping the creation.

Those who worship the creation will never be satisfied. Created things are perishable things. But the worshipper who sets his heart on things above is content. He will seek the Lord in every circumstance with a heart of thanksgiving and a mouth full of praise.

"I might not be a religious man myself but I know good music when I hear it, and this is very good! . . . I don’t think that I have ever given such high ratings to so many songs before. But the fact is that they are well deserved because the music is amazing. Simply wonderful religious ballads and they really get to your heart. . .everytime."
