I love leadership in all its components. However, all the techniques, skills and motivation aside, where I really live and base my thinking is this. I’m a Bible based, faith focused, born again believer. I take my Bible and my relationship with my Heavenly Father seriously. I’m a Christian. You can be as well because God loves you.
“For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 NIV)
We were designed with a plan.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:13-16 NIV)
We have all sinned. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23 NIV)
Christ lived and died paying the price. He gave his life for you. “God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners. Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 NIV) Christ said, “I have come that they may have life, and may have it to the full”. (John 10:10 NIV)
Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6 NIV)
We need to receive Christ. “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12 NIV)
We receive Christ through Faith. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV)
As we receive Christ we experience a new birth. Pray today for God to forgive your sin and come to live within your heart. He has gone to prepare a place for you.
Leadership is, accepting God’s call.
Yours in Service,
