One of my favourite quotes from the Leadership Summit was "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together". I was reminded of that this morning when I read 2Cor2:12-13 where Paul says " Now when I went to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ and found that the Lord had opened a door for me, I still had no peace of mind, because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I said good-by to them and went on to Macedonia.".
I find that amazing. Paul had an opening to preach the gospel, to see lives changed, yet rather than going fast he wanted a team so he could go far. Jesus did the same. Imagine how fast he could have gone in three years without having to deal with the disciples every day. How many more lives changed, how much more healing and deliverance. Yet he wanted to have an impact that reached beyond the cross and resurrection, he wanted to go far, so he went together.
Where today are you tempted to go fast and go alone. In family, at work, in church or with an issue or decision you're facing. Can I encourage you right now to consider what going together, and going far, might look like.
Have a great day.
