In answer to Delma's first question about what influence Jesus has had in her life, Sue Miller explained that for her, Jesus Christ is the centre of her life, and whatever has happened in her life, good or bad, He has been the anchor.
Sue Miller said that Jesus Christ for her is the reference point for all the things that happen in her life and the Lord Jesus brings peace into her inner life. Jesus to her, is Love, and her acceptance comes from Jesus, not from anyone else or anything she has achieved.
Delma Tronson then asked what Sue considered to be her strengths in ministry and her personal walk with the Lord Jesus. She suggested it was her love, that she had learnt how to accept people for who they were and love them as they were.
She explained that she only became a follower of Jesus Christ at the age of 30 and that she had many regrets about her life before that, yet she knew she had been forgiven by Jesus, and now she was a new creation in Christ Jesus. This is why she was so passionate about young people becoming followers of Jesus, to ensure that they get off on the right foot from an early age.
Sue Miller talked next, proudly and passionately, about her three grandchildren. She explained that she constantly prays for them; as she had prayed for the Christian commitment of her own children, even when they were young. Later, she prayed that her children would find the right partners in life. Those prayers were answered, and now she prays for the next generation.
Delma Tronson asked her about initiating new congregations, and Sue Miller responded that she and her husband, Syd, had had the privilege of establishing two congregations; one in Moruya on the New South Wales south coast and this new congregation in Harrison, Canberra.
"First, nothing can be achieved in God's Kingdom by working through our own strength alone," Sue proclaimed. "It is the Lord Himself who builds His church. If there is any one single factor in seeing a congregation develop, it is handing it over to God."
In this, Sue Miller says that she has sought to teach and love the congregation, to seek the Lord's wisdom and not to look at religious leaders, but to seek out God's direction for the congregation's endeavours.
As the senior minister, Sue Miller sees her role as one who loves her people, acts as a mentor to her flock, becomes an influencer for good, and is always a cypher in the presence of the Lord.
