Build leadership on sure foundation and that is Jesus!
Our problems all these years come from Christian who has the same heavenly Father but not mother. Grace and Law.
When leaders are self promoting, something is wrong. The best leader don’t promote themselves.
Is the substance behind the word that matters.
Secure in what God has made us to be
God is bigger than 4 walls.
Anointing – Olive trees
Fig tree – sweet
Whenever there is a vacuum, there must be a leader
There are leaders who rule with diligent
God’s kind of leader feed! They dont threaten.
Leadership are not over people. Perspective is to lifting people up to God.
We are here to serve to serve better.
Ideas is always serving!
We are not pretending we are preaching the gospel straight!
No restriction of preaching the gospel. No mixture!
What makes leadership effective?
1 Corinthians 3:10-17
According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
Foundation laid is Jesus Christ! Everything must be built on Jesus!!
The name is Jesus Christ!
Build on no other names.
Leaders know it is not about them.
God gives rewards!
The season of fire exposes our motive.
Season of good days are longer than the day of testing.
The day of fire will reveal what sort of work is built on.
1 Corinthians 3:12
Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
Fire touches and burn
Wood is always mankind. Wood represent mankind.
If we depend on our fleshly effect, it will burn out.
Pray n ask God for His favour. Bad things happen because they are too smart. Lets be more dependable on His grace. Wisdom is different.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;
Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”
People of the world depends on human smart and they just fade.
Grass refer to people and flower belongs to glory.
The most famous of them are just like flowers and they dried up.
Build on gold silver n precious stones!
If our trust is always in finished work it is secure!
Foundation of Jesus Christ, the golden board! Rest easy our foundation are solid silver based on the sure work of Jesus Christ!
We are built on the solid work of Jesus! Before we can fall, He must fall first! But Jesus won’t fall!
Don’t behold the “wood” in your brother’s eyes.
On Jesus’ heart is you and me!
Precious stones! All of us are precious stones! See people as precious stones.
Build on grace and we receive the reward!
Rewards are not gifts n blessings. Rewards is something He gives us in grace to do and He rewards us when we do that something.
1 Corinthians 3:17
If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
Defiles n destroy are same greek word (Phtheiro) – Fault doctrine
The day of fire will burn it up.
Is the mercy and grace of God for His people.
Too good to be true is the gospel!
Right living comes out from right believing.
God is watching over His people!
If a person preaches and point to Jesus, that person will be rewarded.
Build on Jesus and not always a “I” and “I”. Don’t corrupt people’s faith.
1 Corinthians 6:15-20
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
We are the vine and we flow.
We are not called to produce the fruit but to bear the fruit!!
One spirit with Him!
Don’t trust your flesh. Don’t expose ourselves to temptation.
Preaching the truth and the truth will set us free!
Positive faith is believing Jesus for good.
Negative faith is believing for bad things to happen. U r expecting punishment. Root cause is guilt.
See all our sins been punished at the cross.
This is peace and shalom!
Our body is the temple of God! We are bought at a price!! Glorify God in our body and spirit.
Man who trust in their own works will fade.
The word of our word stands forever!
It is repeated in
1 Peter 1:23-25
having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because
“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
Is the gospel of grace that the word of God stands forever! Only One name will stand! Jesus the centre of our lives!
It is not the word of condemnation! It is the word which by the gospel the gospel of grace is preached to you!
