Give Hell Fits

19 May

Every pastor should live such a life that he causes hell to shiver. Make up your mind that you will not be content to live anything less than a sold-out, on-fire, radically righteous, ridiculously loving, God-centered, Word-filled, Christ-exalting, Satan-stomping life. Decide that you will be a pastor who God uses to the absolute maximum of your abilities. Become a spiritual gate-kicker and one who snatches souls from the flames of hell. Be such a holy warrior that your life gives headaches to hell itself.

Dave Earley in Pastoral Leadership Is …: How to Shepherd God’s People with Passion and Confidence

While the author aims his quote at pastors, this is a standard of spiritual excellence that every Christ follower should aspire to.
