Renewal on the Run

Jill Briscoe

Is it possible to run and renew at the same time? Often we think we have to stop everything in order to rest. But even if we are caught up on our sleep and have just had a vacation, if we are discontent, if we struggle with power plays in ministry, if we get caught in personal conflict with other leaders, those things can put us under. 

Instead, Scriptures talk about an inner rest. In prison, Paul writes to the Philippians about the spiritual art of contentment. These messages from the book of Philippians will help us to learn the answer of how to give out without giving out! 

Jill taught these three messages at a conference for ministry wives, and she addresses some of the unique challenges facing pastors' wives and women in ministry.

  2. 2. Learn to Be Small

    Jill Briscoe

    If you want to do something great for God, learn to be small. Jill speaks to a group of women in ministry, reminding them of the message in Philippians 2. Paul says we are to imitate the humility that Jesus showed in volunteering to become one of us in order to save mankind.  

    Jill talks about how having this attitude will teach us to live in unity with other believers. It will help us not to be critical of others, and not to be affected by others criticism of us. In contrast to a critical spirit, she shows how we can have a "Ministry of Presence" through desiring to be an encouragement to those people God puts in our path.
