From the beginning, God has utilized human instrumentality to lead the community of faith in the way they should go and the work that is to be accomplished. Even so, he is not dependent upon any one person or personality for the continuation of his missional purposes. A long-suffering, persistent, and enduring faith is best evidenced in the life of those whose faithful service is dependent upon not the presence or absence of any one person, but rather, the One who has called us to walk steadfastly and serve faithfully in a world of ever-changing circumstances.
