“Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”
The two disciples who heard this question were as unprepared for it as most people usually are. They blurted out an answer that didn’t get to the deeper question that Jesus was asking.

Everyone thinks they know what they want but when they get it they often realize it wasn’t what was needed.
Legendary rock star and singer of the band U2 Bono hit on this when he penned the lyrics:
“I gave you everything you ever wanted
It wasn’t what you wanted”
In today’s video, CEO and co-founder of Exponential, Todd Wilson explains how he found himself in a room full of leaders who had “arrived” in ministry.

They had found bucks and book contracts but lost the excitement for ministry along the way.
The problem was that they weren’t seeing the exciting multiplication that they had read about in the book of Acts.
Many people have never answered the question of what they truly want.
Maybe a better question to ask is what does God want for your church?
Watch the video below to find out what God wants for your church.
