I hope you hear a forgetful preacher tomorrow.
From H.B. Charles Jr:
Personal holiness, spiritual growth, and ministerial faithfulness are rooted in what you remember and what you forget. You should never forget what the Lord has sovereignly and graciously done for you. You should not forget what God has called you from and what God has called you to. You should never forget the wonderful privilege and great responsibility you have as a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ.
But a good minister of Jesus Christ must also know what to forget. More specifically, you must learn to forget yourself. Faithfulness to Christ requires a holy sense of self-forgetfulness. It’s like riding a seesaw. Both persons cannot be up at the same time. As one is up the other is down. You cannot exalt Christ and yourself at the same time. In the words of John the Baptist, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).
