Biblical Leadership: Qualifications for Leaders

As we begin to look at the biblical qualification for leadership, pay close attention not only to what is there, but also to what is not there. There is no requirement for a university degree or previous work experience.

Called to Follow

As we learn what a great leader looks like biblically, it will act as a grid by which we will examine the leaders to whom we will submit ourselves.

Biblical Leadership

At the final judgment, men will cast all their crowns at the feet of Jesus…until that day comes,
God looks for, calls, and appoints men and women who will lead in every area of life, including the church.

Tips for Leading Someone to Christ

When the opportunity arises to lead someone to Christ, the first thing that happens for most of us is that we immediately get nervous and feel uneasy. 

Gospel Scriptures You Should Know

When scripture speaks into the life of a person, it cuts in like a surgeon’s scalpel, in order to bring healing and life to the person in need.

How to Share Your Testimony

We are called to be witnesses. In legal terminology, when a “witness” is called in court, he shares his “testimony.”

The Sky-Level Gospel

This method uses the full story of scripture to lay out God’s beautiful, original plan; the problem of sin in humanity, and the reason for which Christ came into the world.

The Shoes of The Gospel of Peace

As believers, we should be living in this peace of God (shalom/eirēnē), right now, even though the war over the rest of creation is still raging!

The Breastplate of Righteousness

While our own righteousness is fully dependent on Jesus Christ and His forgiveness, it must become our own identity in this world.

The Belt of Truth

We need help. We rely on belts, daily, to keep our pants from slipping down and our shirts from bunching up or coming untucked.

Spiritual Warfare

I do see, however, a lack of understanding among many, that we are in a season of mass spiritual warfare!

The Process of Repentance

I took some time to prayer journal, asking God to speak to me about true repentance and how to fight a better fight next time.
