Devotion as a Leader

When everything seems to be against us as a leader, we must hold fast to the truth that God is a breakthrough God! Faith sees differently; it looks beyond the hopelessness of our situation. Sometimes we need to put the naysayers outside and only surround ourselves with the voice of God and those that speak in faith!

Multiplication in Leadership

Sometimes we get so focused on "leadership" and being a "leader", that we zoom past and forget that God first recognizes our "follower-ship" and then makes us a leader! Our goal is not to build followers, but instead to turn followers into leaders.

Reverse Propulsion

Every shepherd leads, but not every leader shepherds! Pulling from the story of Simon Peter, Ps. Jurgen talks about how Jesus was able to rebuke Simon in the harshest way but still Simon followed. This shows not only Simon's ability to take a rebuke, learn from it, and move on, but also how Jesus didnt' worry about someone's feelings in the midst of a teaching moment! Discipling others can sometimes feel like we're movingn backward, but if we lead and guide in love, you can only go up from there!
