Leadership is NOT the Limitless Pill

Everybody’s everything is leadership.

limitlessThe church has become one dimensional in our thinking and nobody seems to see it. We’ve boiled down “follow me” into leadership lessons.

We’ve lost the dimension of walking in love, listening to the Spirit, and living by faith. Everything is now a proven method, a step by step growth pattern, a technique. It’s become to clean and easy.

Give me the messy wisdom and failed experiences of sages and prophets over the
infomercial leaders.

Leadership is a by-product not a catalyst. Moses my servant led Israel through being humble. Joshua my servant led Israel by courage.

gandalfGive me back the development of Christian disciplines as a means of grace and the character of Christ as a portrait to follow and I will show you the leaders of his army.

But don’t give me leadership lessons. Enough of this trite life.

Give me the dimensions of Christ by the Spirit and you will be given leaders, apostles, fathers & mothers, prophets, pastors, martyrs, people who are gifted to be hospitable, givers, administers, comforters, healers, seers, prayer warriors, etc.

You will be given the full measure of the spirit of Christ in and through the whole Body of Christ.

Now do you still want to talk about just leadership?
