Don’t miss the moment. Once it is gone, it is gone forever.
You are called to a Savior, a Kingdom, and a moment. What are you going to do in this moment?
For such a moment, you must lead. And lead you must. Nowhere in the Bible is cowardice or apathy rewarded. In fact, cowardice is punished (Numbers 14). Moral courage is always rewarded and blessed. Standing up for righteousness is an act of obedience.
We must recover and embrace God’s definition of ‘leadership.’
“Biblically, leadership is not someone at the top or someone out front. (A leader) is a person who takes the initiative and takes responsibility for either the opportunity or the crisis right in front of them…. That is what we must recover.”
– Os Guiness
Trying times call for tough leaders. In God’s providence, you and I were put in this moment in time and this place to live for Him. For God’s sake lead! Whether it is your family, your community, your workplace, or your church, you are called to take initiative and responsibility for the opportunity or crisis you are facing right now. If God placed the crisis or opportunity in front of you, don’t be fearful – Be faithful!
“It is going to take an enormous amount of biblical commitment, theological clarity, and individual and congregational courage to stand against the tide of the moral and ideological revolution of the culture.”
– Albert Mohler
Do not miss the moment. It has arrived.
The question is, “What are you going to do in the moment?
Reflect and meditate on the following scriptures that will challenge, equip and encourage you to lead!
“For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation….” Acts 13:36
“And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14b
“And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place…” Acts 17:26
“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son…” Galatians 4:4a
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
“Those who know God’s plans are responsible to live courageously for Him.” – Dr. Bill Egner
