"I woudl like to offer more than just lodging or fuel assistance...I'd like our small churches to know they have a 'voice' in what happens in our mission and work in the State. They matter to the overall impact to God's Kingdom, and I value their input." --Ken Sartain.

A Final Lesson from Bill Hybels and Willow Creek by James Emery White for OutreachMagazine

No one has breathed more vision and challenge into my vocational world than Bill Hybels and the fleshed-out picture of the church exhibited by Willow Creek.

I’ve known Bill for a long time. I’ve been in his home in South Barrington and he has been in mine in Charlotte. I’ve stood on the deck of a boat with him where he summered in South Haven, Michigan. We’ve been on mentoring retreats together. He traveled to Charlotte many years ago to speak at our church in support of a capital campaign. He’s endorsed many of my books. I’ve taught at Willow Creek conferences and at Willow Creek itself. We were just together again this past February when we led a conference together in England.

Which is why his newly revealed, deeply entrenched, shadow life has felt so distressingly … personal. Attempting to reconcile the man I respected (and felt I knew) with what has come to light has been as confusing and disturbing as any reconciliation I have ever had to make.

And I still haven’t made it.

What people have been able to do is gather leadership lessons from the wreckage. The man (and church) who singlehandedly put the importance of the spiritual gift of leadership in the life of the church on the map for our generation has (ironically, from horrific failure) given us many final lessons.

How to Foil Satan's Go-To Temptation by J. D. Greear for OutreachMagazine

Every army general serious about success enters a battle with a plan. He knows his strengths, his weaknesses, his tactics, his contingencies. Most of all, for his plan to be successful, he must know his enemy. If he doesn’t, even his best intentions won’t keep him from destruction.

When it comes to battling temptation, however, many of us assume that good intentions are sufficient. We really do want to overcome temptation, but we’ve never considered that our temptations are administered at the hands of a skillful, ruthless enemy bent on our destruction. Our good intentions are no match for the corruption of our flesh, much less the cunning of our enemy.

As the apostle Paul noted, as long as we dwell in corruptible bodies, we’re going to have temptations. And we’re going to stumble—sometimes quite often. The greatest saints have despaired over their propensity toward temptation even in their dying days. In his eighties, John Newton confessed how discouraged he was with his lack of spiritual progress and how acute the temptations of his flesh still felt to him. John Bunyan lamented the fear and faithlessness he felt going into the last chapter of his life.

Even so, we don’t have to throw our hands up and simply give in. If we know a little about Satan’s tactics, we can have much more confidence when he attacks.

Satan’s Go-To Tactic

When Satan tempted Jesus, he began by saying, “If you are the Son of God …” (Matt. 4:3).
