Ego and ministry

He's sharing personal thoughts, but Bob Martin is by no means alone in his concerns about ministry and ego:
Who I am has everything to do what God thinks of me. It has everything to do with understanding that no matter what, my ministry is far beyond my ability to do this on my own. My life and work are not about proving to others that I am adequate and able. Rather, it is about relying on God who raises the dead. My hope is not on finding the right church or getting recognized in some way that might stroke my ego. My hope is in only one who is worthy of my complete reliance.
