So much false humility in the church today. If God was to show up today and say to you “I will make your name great” you would say “No, no, Lord make your name great” and he would say “No, my name is already great, I want to make your name great!”
Any believers you meet that say “I’m just trying to make Jesus famous” just say to them “He already is, he is wanting to make you great.”” … He is wanting to do something in your life so that His blessing rests on you to such an extent that it captures the attention of the people around you and they can say “wow, something great is happening in their life” and at that point your life becomes a reference point to His grace and His glory. It’s just how He is, it’s just how He works."
Taken from his talk “Promise” (10:50min but listen to the whole thing!)
"So like King, I too have a dream: I have a dream that female celebrities will one day feel that they don’t need to imitate porn actors on magazine covers and in their stage acts. I have a dream that the predominantly white music world will stop reducing black music to grills and bitches and twerking. And I have a dream that stupid songs about seducing “good girls” will be laughed at instead of sent to No 1. And most of all, I dream that I never, ever have to see Miley Cyrus gyrating against Robin Thicke’s crotch again. We won’t be free then, but it will be a start."
