Reclusive Leadership…

Few areas in life are more exciting than seeing God’s hand at work.

However, Dorsey Traw said, “It is difficult to see the hand of God at work in our lives, if the only place we ever go is to the supermarket and the service station.”

Consider how limited a reclusive life becomes if we only visit one or two places.

Leadership never takes place in seclusion. If we plan to make a dent in the spiritual transformation of the world, we must get out and get involved in the lives of others.

We must pray fervently, lift up our eyes and look for opportunities, and step up to lead others to our Lord.

Committed Leaders…

The key to leadership is commitment. Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” 

At the heart of any lasting endeavor is the power of commitment. When commitment exists, we can change the world.

As Ms. Mead stated, “It is the only thing that ever has.”

When we look at the early church, the apostles demonstrated a level of commitment that is rarely, if ever, seen in our time, but Christians followed them freely making a sacrifice with their lives for Jesus.

Our leadership for Christ should exemplify the same if we hope to change the world.

Leading In Global Times…

No longer is it a matter of if or when, globalization is here, and now! We often hear people say, “It’s a small world.” 

With the touch of a button, messages can be sent to the other side of the world.

However, we need to ask a few questions.

Are we aware of the changes globally? Economically? Politically? Socially? Religiously?
Have we considered how to embrace these changes?
Does our current plan involve a domestic or global approach?
How are we preparing spiritual leaders within a global context?

As the Lord’s church, we need to answer these questions and take steps to lead with a global perspective.
