3 POINTS I WANT TO GIVE YOU AS YOU TAKE THE LEADERSHIP ROLE OF THIS CHURCH
1. RUN YOUR RACE
Heb 12:1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus
YOUR CALLING HAS TO DO WITH YOUR RACE.
2 Tim 1:9 God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity,
1 Pet 5:2 shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; 3 nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
2 Tim 4:1 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
Acts 20:24 But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.
2. CARRY THE FIRE
THAT FIRE IS CONNECTED TO HIS PRESENCE / THE ANOINTING
TPT 2 Tim 1:6 fan into a flame and rekindle the fire of the spiritual gift God imparted to you when I laid my hands upon you.
STAY ON THE ALTAR, STAY DEVOTED, STAY SENSITIVE...
GOD’S WORD IN YOUR MOUTH MAKES YOU AN UNSTOPABLE FIRE.
3. YOU ARE CALLED TO SERVE
Phil 2:5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant,
JESUS SAID, The greatest among you is the servant of all.
SERVE WITH JOY AND GLADNESS – IT’S YOUR ATTITUDE BAROMETER.
LEAD WITH TRANSPARENCY, HUMILITY, FAITH AND CONTEND FOR MIRACLES...
