Life At The Bridge 9-11-20

Leaders Change the world! It’s not all about power and authority, it’s about impact. And who better to impact an uncertain and slightly CRAZY world than the people of God. This isn’t about an agenda, it’s about giving people a Jesus-centered, life-giving vision for moving forward through troubling and uncertain times.

Last week we talked about the importance of leading with moral authority. If you want to be the kind of leader people respect and love to follow, positional authority isn’t enough. As a matter of fact, positional authority is despised when it is not characterized by moral authority. Watch last week's message here if you missed it and to process that message a little more, you can use the attached discussion guide.

Does it seem that our world has become a little...heartless? Maybe much of the uncertainty so many of us  feel is that the world has become a cold and lonely place. I mean, who really cares about one another any more? God is calling His people to be DIFFERENT - leaders worth following because we lead from beneath the exterior. This week we take a look at how Jesus lead with His heart and how He is calling us to do the same. I hope you will join us and consider inviting a friend to join you - online or in person.
