The Cult of Leadership

a Biblical thought...
So Ananias went and found the house, placed his hands on blind Saul, and said, "Brother Saul, the Master sent me, the same Jesus you saw on your way here. He sent me so you could see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit." No sooner were the words out of his mouth than something like scales fell from Saul's eyes—he could see again! He got to his feet, was baptized, and sat down with them to a hearty meal. (Acts 9:17-19)

a Book thought...
The message of Jesus is that we are beautiful and desired beyond our wildest imagining. (p68 Frost)
a Dave thought...
Dr. John Capper is a man I have a lot of respect for, he was a lecturer of mine at Tabor and has come to the Salvos on a few occasions to preach and has shown a great heart and attitude just by the way he interacted and accepted all who were present.

Yesterday at Forge he spoke on the '"Cult of Leadership" it was a fascinating session as he challenged us to remember the fact that Jesus called us to follow Him and to become disciples. Sadly many of us have changed the great commission into go and make leaders, but Jesus wants us to follow Him and give up all our worldly ambitions.

Just a thought.
