What are you aiming for, in this life and in the next? What would help you to achieve those things? What did Jesus do?
Once things are going well, it can be tempting for us to just ‘settle down’, but Jesus did not think like this. He was always on the move.
In only a few centuries, Christianity quickly become the main religion of the entire Western World. How did that happen? Could it ever happen again?
If we want to serve God, we will often have to venture out into the unknown. This can feel quite scary, but the LORD is with us.
Who could you ask to lead your congregation with you? Who will you train up to lead another one? Do these people remind you of Jesus?
Leadership teams don’t always agree, but arguing well with one another can be very helpful. It all depends on how well our conflicts are managed.
We are all called to follow Jesus, but we all respond to His call in different ways – especially when it involves some degree of personal change.
God has not designed us lead our Congregations on our own. No-one is that good. We lead much better when we do so in teams – together.
Most of us do not communicate well about Jesus, with the people whom we are trying to reach – but we can learn how to do it better!
Are we willing to extend ourselves for the people whom we are trying to reach? Will we place their preferences ahead of our own?
