An amazing man of God recently reflected on leadership challenges within his denomination. He shared with BBT that about 25% of people he met felt they were in crisis and couldn’t take on a leadership role. He said, 50% secretly lacked the confidence and felt they shouldn’t lead. But the final 25%, despite facing their own crises, are able to reach beyond themselves to serve others through leadership. They seem driven by something the other 75% aren't. What is it?
"All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills." 1 Cor 12:11 (RSV)
Those who accept God's call to leadership understand the results of their service are not dependent on themselves, but the Spirit, freeing them to serve without concern for the outcome. Though most people rarely feel ready to accept the opportunities God offers.
- Crisis says you can't lead.
- Confidence lacking says you shouldn’t lead.
- Christ says everyone's a leader.
Everyone has unique gifts meant for serving Him. You are a leader. BBT wants to help you lead.
What would change if you took the leap of faith?
