We both felt the approaching melody in "The Next Episode" Instrumental by Dr. Dre. Sure enough, John Lim (I'll introduce you to him soon) came by and took responsibility for the tune takeover in Jubala Coffee. We were very pleased. Even if we weren't, I'm glad that people like Derrick know that you can't please everyone. As a campus pastor, Derrick daily surrenders the desire to receive the approval of others in order to fully experience a relationship with God and the opportunity to share it with others. Sometimes that looks like leaving his phone off at home when he's stewarding his #1 ministry, his family. Other moments, it looks like intersecting relationships with his daily activities. "I'm getting back to the point where I can play basketball," he told me with excitement. I'd say that sports are one of the greatest settings for authentic relationship. In fact, basketball is where Derrick was challenged by his high school coach to pursue a deeper relationship with God. As a leader, Derrick is now challenged to submit in his relationship. "I have to ask myself, 'Is this for God's glory or Derrick's glory?" he shared with me. He has to be the #1 follower at his church. It's a beautiful privilege. What's interesting about submission is that it can also be a place of rest. "Rest shows us we are in need of a Savior." Rest allows us to be realigned, recharged and reaffirmed. We're at our best when we're at rest.
