Adam Weber: How to Love Difficult People (for Pastors)

“Love doesn’t always look like love. Sometimes love is having a really hard conversation.”

“Thankfully, the same God who raised Christ from the dead lives inside of us.”

“As a pastor and as a leader, it is easier and easier to become a ‘professional Christian.’”

“One of the things I think is so important is as pastors and leaders we should constantly be rubbing shoulders with people who have no idea who we are and who don’t care who we are.”

“It almost feels like we get discipled in theory.”

“Love is more than a theory; it’s really, really messy.”

“I think a key part of the discipleship process is, who are you loving?”

“Hopefully, our churches are meeting people who are messy.”

“You say, ‘I want to go deeper.’ Ok, that single parent on your block: care for them.”

“Do we spend our entire life reading just the manual [of discipleship]?”
