This is part four of our series Dream Bigger. In 2018 we are celebrating 75 years since King's Church International was founded and it is a time to dream bigger dreams for what God is going to do.
Part 4 of the series is New Leaders, and you can listen to the podcast or read the summary below.
"Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." - Acts 2:14-21
We received a really powerful word this week that challenged us all to think about how we are personally developing as leaders. We must recognise that the only way the church will grow is by seeing new leadership; from many people and in every area of our lives.
1. Existing groups of leaders
2. Radically converted leaders
3. Multiracial leaders from different socio-economic backgrounds
4. Spirit-filled leaders
5. Young leaders
6. Women leaders
7. Leaders who will bring the influence of the Kingdom of God in society as well as in the church
You may have been really challenged by the message this week. Have you accepted God's call of leadership on your life? We are all called to be leaders, no matter what that may involve.
Declare this verse this week as you ask God to reveal His calling of leadership on your life.
2 Timothy 1:7; "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline."
God has called me to be a leader, His Spirit is on me and He is with me.
Thank you Lord that you have called me to lead, I pray that you would reveal this calling to me and give me the strength and courage to fulfil it.
