Imagine for a moment that you, your spouse, your child, a loved one, or a friend are struggling with discouragement, deeply marred down with dismay, and marked by the stains of having ventured out into the world. On such an occasion you place an urgent call.
At your time of need, what would you expect from your Christian leader? Would you want him able to show you the way to Christ with a relevance that enraptures your heart with the grace of Jesus’ love?
Suppose you awake to a day dawning with the heaviness of loss, the anxiety of being out of control, debilitated by worry, anxiety, and depression. Perhaps it is a day similar to Job’s when he exclaimed:
For my sighing comes instead of my bread,Job 3:24–26 ESV
and my groanings are poured out like water.
For the thing that I fear comes upon me,
and what I dread befalls me.
I am not at ease, nor am I quiet;
I have no rest, but trouble comes.
Would you want your spiritual leader, at such a time as this, to be capable of speaking the words of life into your soul in an authentic manner that would resurrect your spirit from the depths of despair?
Would you desire for your Christian leader to help you find your way when you are lost amid the wood of spiritual exhaustion?
Would you want him bearing the torch of God’s enlightened truth in the darkness of your night so you could find your way?
How would you want to find your Christian leader on the day evil comes to your life?
But where does your Christian leader turn when he/she faces similar situations? Who is available to help them through the foggy nights? Where do they turn when they can’t find the way to relevant truth?
DESPERATELY DEPENDENT COMMUNITY exists to engage and encourage Christian leaders to find Christ relevant to every area of life thereby promoting effective, sustained ministries.
