In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Robby Gallaty, senior pastor of Long Hollow Baptist Church and author of Firmly Planted and Foundations. They discuss how is church is experiencing revival through spontaneous baptism and avoiding burnout in ministry.
“God began to show us that the medium of the screen doesn’t minimize the ministry of the Holy Spirit.”
“Here’s how you know you are burning out in ministry: the Bible for you becomes a tool to use and not a treasure to behold.”
“It’s very easy for us to fall in love with the ministry of Jesus and out of love with the Jesus of our ministry.”
“The Holy Spirit is a great leader, and He is honest. If you ask Him to put His finger on the pulse of the problem of your life, He is great at it.”
“Every great movement of God begins by not moving.”
“So many people want to go out in pastoral ministry and they don’t want to wait on the Lord.”
“I went to seminary and traded an anointing for intellect. And I traded the power of God for ingenuity and my own ability.”
“The more I sat with the Lord the more I realized the human language is insufficient in the presence of an infinite, eternal God.”
“We have to, through silence and solitude, sit long enough for the voices, noises, and volume in our life to slow down enough that we can hear that small voice.”
“Burnout, in your life and my life, comes when we do the thing we are made to do and we do all the other things that other people can do at the same time.”
“If you pray for the hands of God and not His face, you may get neither. But if you pray and seek the face of God, you get both.”
