Luke 12:48 KJV 1900
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Luke 12:41–48 KJV 1900
41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? 42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. 45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
You are here today because your pastor sees the potential for you in leadership.
What does that mean?
Steward (mayordomo): Overseer, someone that is in charge of someone else's goods.
Jesus would teach a lot on stewards and stewardship.
Jesus said there are only two kinds of leaders
Hard working and lazy
When the master returns he will find those using their influence one of two ways.
Using his influence to fulfil his MASTER’S wishes
Using his influence to fulfill his OWN wishes
Define leadership
Sometimes we act like leadership is some hard to understand, got to have a special calling, certain personality only the few can have it.
Leadership: the ability to influence other people to do what you want.
Godly/church leadership: the ability to influence other people to do what God wants!
A good leader will influence others to:
build his buisness
raise money for cancer reserch
raise awareness for some great cause
use thier time wisely
A bad leader will influence others to:
bad habits
waste money
join a cult
make bad decision
A bad church leader will influence others to:
doubt their pastor
question holiness
question the message
encourage non commitment
Satan is a good leader!
He is good at influencing people to do bad things!
A good church leader will influence others to:
love their pastor
love holiness and separation
embrace the message
encourage one another
Hebrews 10:23–25 KJV 1900
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
He is good at influencing people to do bad things!
A Godly leader is a doer
Questions that God asked me to ask you the last time I was here
What are you doing as a leader?
What things should you be doing to develop yourself as a leader?
How much are you praying?
How much are you studying the Word of God?
How have you brought to church?
How many home bible studies have you taught?
What is your desire?
Best way to see what your desire is is to monitor what you do!
BECAUSE WE DO WHAT WE WANT NOT WHAT WE SHOULD DO!
Romans 7:14–25 KJV 1900
14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Do you wish to please God or yourself?
Do you wish to sing or do ministry?
Do you wish to see Jesus or be seen?
Do you know your pastor’s desire/heart?
If you don’t know, how can you lead people in this church?
