Lifting Brave Leaders

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.”

John 15:16

Where we see only crises and problems, God sees fertile grounds where he will send his servants to expand His kingdom. Although, we may see an increasingly gloomy outlook, the current difficulties and tensions are serving as the perfect reasons for new generations of leaders to rise up. They are tasked with the challenge of making things
differently.

Our world is in deep need of leaders. We are looking for people who influence and lead a community towards the knowledge of the gospel of salvation. In one way or another, societies are shaped by their leadership. High-quality leaders represent one of the most valuable treasures to your organization or community. On the contrary, a weak one can produce irreparable damage and consequences to those around him.

A leader with the heart of God never lacks resources. None of us should consider ourselves undervalued or deficient to meet His commission. Our Lord Jesus never focused on creating an institution, he dedicated himself to training people. At first, none of the apostles had any qualities worthy of recognition, but Jesus saw in these men the potential to be leaders who impacted their society to announce the Kingdom of God.

A true leader is a person who is more than involved, but is completely committed to a cause.We are called to live in the midst of darkness, sin, tragedy, immorality, and many other dangers. As leaders, we are responsible to tackle them.

Are you influencing others around you? Are you being the type of leader you are called
to be? God is waiting for you to lead!
