How to keep from pastoral jealousy in viewing others’ success

From Art Azurdia preaching from John 3:22ff

  1. Recognize that every expression of success is the exclusive prerogative of God (v. 27).
  2. Recognize that ultimate satisfaction comes in uniting people intimately to Jesus Christ (vv. 28-29).
  3. Recognize that the increasing preeminence of Jesus Christ has been irresistibly predetermined (v. 30)

This sermon was encouraging because as a pastor of a church with 27 members, I tend to get discouraged due to self-centeredness.
