Dare To Lead

Under Authority

26 … Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:26-28 (NIV) Christian leaders should go in the opposite direction of the world.  If you want to change the world, be a servant leader rather than leading from authority.   Before we…

Who Are You For?

13 Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand.
