From inside the walls of our churches to the halls of Congress, people are looking for leadership. But what is a real leader?
Is it the person who “makes the rules” and “calls the shots?”
Is it the one who constantly reminds others of who is in charge?
Is it the person who has the “my way or the highway” mentality?
Is it the person who listens to the advice of others? Is it the person who takes suggestions and criticism, and has the wisdom to run with the good, and throw out the bad?
In his book, Jesus: The Man Who Lives, British author Malcolm Muggeridge made this observation…
If the greatest of all, Incarnate God, chooses to be servant of all, who would wish to be master?”
Jesus said that “whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.”
Do you wish to lead? If you do, then find out what it means to serve, and become a servant today.
We are in the beginning of what is already promising to be a great week at Abba’s House. Yesterday, we began our annual Fresh Oil New Wine Conference, and it is off to a great start. I’m being joined this week by Pastor John Hagee, Perry Stone, Rabbi Curt Landry, Dwain Miller, Randy Caldwell, and more. We are already seeing God move in mighty ways, and are expecting an outpouring of His Spirit as we tap into the ancient wells of our heritage as believers. I hope you can make it, but if you cannot get to Chattanooga, you can watch us online by clicking this link. You can find out more about Fresh Oil New Wine by visiting here.
