He is Responsible

In the last few months I have been made more and more aware of the weightiness of the responsibilities I have been given as the campus minister at Boston University. "16,000 students and no RUF--it's your job to start one!" I like to think that I'm a responsible guy--the kind of guy that does what he says he's going to do. This is a good thing, until I try to be responsible for things that I was never meant to be responsible for. Colossians 1:18 says "And he is the head of the body, the church." The "he" the verse is referring to is Jesus Christ. As head of the Church, he is responsible for its growth and its preservation. As servants of Jesus, we are merely to be faithful in our various (and often ordinary!) callings in the body of Christ. It is a refreshing truth as a rookie campus minister at BU to know that I've got a veteran and capable Captain.
