That's why you see heads of ministries that are bigger than life. The truth be known, many of them are, without being cognizant of it, trying to be bigger than God. So when you hear or encounter (personally) one of these Christian celebrities, do you perceive the glory of Jesus or are you enamored with their persona? The answer to that question will tell you whether they are part of the Kingdom of God or if they are just building their own empire.
So let's make this personal. Am I part of the Kingdom of God or am I just building my own empire? We can easily sit back and judge the motives and results of those who are more prominent either in the Kingdom of God or building their own empires. But each of us are also doing either one or the other. So when people encounter us, what do they see? Do they see the glory of Jesus in what we say and do or do they have difficulty perceiving the treasure we have because we are trying to outshine Jesus? Let's strip away the gaudy pixie dust and stickers we've plastered on the ordinary clay jars of our lives. Let them encounter the treasure that we carry with us.
