I’m done with people trying to tell me how awesome I am. Especially fellow pastors.
We should know better.
I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but very recently I reached my limit on this.
Maybe it was the automatically-generated messages I get from some pastors after I follow them on Twitter. Everyone who follows them, including faceless corporations and porn trolls all get the same “you are awesome!” message that I get. So it means nothing.
Or it could have been the church I saw on vacation that calls themselves, “The church for awesome people. Like you.”
Sorry. No. I don’t want a church for awesome people. I’d feel out of place.
I need a church that helps broken, sinful people find an awesome, loving and forgiving God.
