Leadership is influence. Everything rises and falls on leadership, everything.
The world can be loud about sin, Journey Church is being loud about Jesus.
If the world can be loud about sin, why can’t the church be loud about salvation?
Sometimes we live too timid, too quiet and we are not bold enough for Christ. (Acts 4:29, NKJV)
Just because you feel the heat it doesn’t mean you’re burning.
When on fire, your have-tos become want-tos and get-tos.
When on fire you don’t have to push yourself to start, you have to push yourself to stop.
Don’t allow the fire to go out and don’t take it for granted.
For a fire to keep burning you have to add wood. For your spiritual fire to keep burning, you have to add God’s Word.
Watch out for Firefighters; anyone or anything that tries to put your fire out.
- Firefighters focus on what’s wrong with the idea rather than what’s right.
- Firefighters possess a questioning spirit.
- Firefighters work behind the scenes to cause dissension.
- Firefighters hate change. They protect what IS not, not what COULD BE.
- Firefighters keep many people with great potential from going to the top.
Keep the fire burning. (Psalm 90:16-17, NRSV)
Spend time with fire lighters, not firefighters.
Be involved in things that are on fire.
Ask God for fire.
Attempt great things for God.
Read, hear, and think on His Word.
