Leadership: And of You. (Ex. 32:10)

Simply put, ministry is the out working of our regeneration (new birth) to humanity, in other words our vocation. With this in mind, our vision is our unique contribution to humanity, in light of our personality, natural gifts, and spiritual gifts. 

To this end, people (this includes workers) are beneficiaries and shapers (in the sense that they help align and realign our impact) of our ministry, and God remains the inspiration (the breathe or life) behind our vision. 
This wisdom is particularly important for leaders who suffer from what I call ‘people dependency syndrome’, especially in a church setting.

So back to our scripture focus. God said to Moses after the people had created and worshipped a golden calf, not long after he delivered them with his mighty hands from Egypt:

Now let me alone, so that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them; and of you I will make a great nation. – (Exodus 32:10)

And of You, glory to God!

You, and no one else. You are on His majesty’s mission. You are God’s emissary, his agent, his delegate. 
You matter dear friend, and your ministry and vision matters. 

Stay focused,
Pastor Clem

The Words of Our Elders: T D Jakes

In order to make this journey–you have to make it without baggage. You can’t carry loads of bags with weight on you in order to be free and Jesus gives you an invitation to come unto him. Now you have to come to him–you will not get rest from anybody else. If you go to anybody else your going to find more work.

~ T D Jakes

Spiritual Intelligence: Critics…

Critics…

On our journey to a better place we are bound to encounter a few. They help spice up our success story.

Their job is easy; sit on the fence, watch people toil, then pull their work apart without any consideration.

Winston Churchill once said;

You’ll never reach your destination if you stop to throw stones at every dog that barks.

So don’t waste valuable time and energy justifying your idea to them, when there are countless others out there waiting for you to emerge.

Maintain your focus, listen out for constructive feedback, and let the market do the talking!
