One of the new practices on our elder board is that we take 30 minutes at the beginning of every meeting to cross-examine one of the brothers. You hear a lot of expected questions (How is your prayer life and quiet time? How is your parenting?), but you also a wide range of unexpected questions. One question that I heard recently that I thought would be good for other pastors to consider:
"If the devil were to ruin your ministry, what area of your life would he pursue?"
And a follow-up question: "Whatever area of life is vulnerable, what are you doing right now to protect against the devil's work?"
Brothers, don't let the devil get a foothold in your life. Pray and Fight. There is much work left to be done.
