“Shalom aleikhem!” Yeshua repeated. “Just as the Father sent me, I myself am also sending you.” John 20:21 CJB
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, our savior let us remember the reason He came was to be with us, to redeem us and to return again. Our mission is to be fishers of men, and to equip and train others to lead others to Him.
Behold, The Lamb who was slain for our sins!
For a church to be constantly needing revival is the indication of much sin, for if it were sound before the Lord it would remain in the condition into which a revival would uplift its members. A church should be a camp of soldiers, not an hospital of invalids. But there is exceedingly much difference between what ought be and what is, and consequently many of God’s people are in so sad a state that the very fittest prayer for them is for revival. Some Christians are, spiritually, but barely alive. ~Charles Spurgeon – What is Revival – Sword & Trowel 1866
Revival is not measured by the number of people who come to a church, Revival is measured by the number of sheep trained, equipped and led to the pasture God wants them! Mark Geppert, Founder SEAPC
Fishers of men are: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, Equipped by the Holy Spirit and Emitted by the Holy Spirit
True Leadership is mindful of others.
Therefore, if you have any encouragement for me from your being in union with the Messiah, any comfort flowing from love, any fellowship with me in the Spirit, or any compassion and sympathy, 2 then complete my joy by having a common purpose and a common love, by being one in heart and mind. 3 Do nothing out of rivalry or vanity; but, in humility, regard each other as better than yourselves — 4 look out for each other’s interests and not just for your own. Phil. 2:1-4 CJB
May the Lord bless you and your family this holiday season!
