Chad Ward ,my co-planter 10 yrs ago, and I, have joked about the fact that the secret to our church’s success is the fact that we were simply too stupid quit! One of the reasons I love speaking into the life of church planters, is because our story proves that if we can plant a successful church, almost ANYONE can! Our story is about “the little engine that could”. The story of two ordinary, non-name guys from Alabama, to whom God gave a vision.
Looking back, however, I really believe there are so many times, if we had had a clue, that we should have quit on the vision! There have been so many times when we felt like we weren’t making a difference; so many times when we felt like we had lost momentum; so many times when we wondered if all that God had placed in our heads and hearts was going to happen. Today it is. Largely for one reason and one reason alone: We were too stupid to quit. What about you? Are you too stupid to quit?When the going gets tough? When things aren’t moving ahead like you thought? When it gets painfully hard? Are you stupid enough to hang in there? if so, explosive impact could be just around the corner!
