Cost of Leadership

If status quo was good enough, there wouldn’t ever be a need for leaders. 

Because if you are leading, by definition you are leading change. And if you are leading change, you will be misrepresented, you will be misaligned, and you will be misunderstood.

All these things will happen, just because you are leading.

And when those times come, your first gut reaction will be to run, to quit. Don’t do it. Leaders, please never quit.

You are right where God wants you to be. And remember, no matter what you are facing, no matter what you are going through, God is enough. He is more than enough.

It's precisely our context, our communities, our churches, our homes God had in mind when God placed you there so God can lead through you.

And this God who called you into your context of ministry is saying to you, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me…for I am the way, the truth, and the life.”
