Jesus Didn’t win the World!
Jesus didn’t win the world…
Jesus had a tribe of 12. He didn’t come to win the world but came to die for the world! He invested in and equipped a tribe of 12 that did win the world! What a great challenge for leaders!
Jesus didn’t spent His earthly ministry trying to do everything himself, or His vision for His church would not have survived! He had to invest in others to the point they were not just PASSIONATE about the Gospel vision, they OWNED it, and it OWNED them!
We need to examine our philosophy and strategy of leadership. Are we trying to carry a single or multiple visions by ourselves, burning the candle at both ends “trying to get it done.” Or, are we investingÂ and equipping a group of leaders that will move things and go places we never imagined. I believe that was Jesus’ heart, and that’s why He said, “greater things will you do.”
When God gives a BIG vision, that person generally doesn’t see it fulfilled! (i.e., Moses, Abraham & Jesus)
If the vision is only about YOU it will die with you. Invest and plant it it others and the vision will live WITHOUT you! That’s what Jesus did!
Are you willing to lead like Jesus did, and give the vision away?
