Nine Monday Morning Questions For Church Leaders
#1 - Did I preach God’s Word yesterday? If so then rely on the reality of Isaiah 55:8-11…these verses are a promise, rest in them instead of your perception of the crowd.
#2 - Am I thinking about giving up? If so then check out Galatians 6:9…this is a promise from Scripture, rest in IT and not your discouragement.
#3 - Am I feeling like I really sucked it up yesterday and am really beating myself up in my mind? If so then check out Romans 8:1…correction does come from Christ…but condemnation does not! Don’t allow them voice of the enemy to be the dominant voice in your life.
#4 - Is there a really tough conversation that I’ve been avoiding that I really need to have? If so see Galatians 2:11-14…I am sure this was not an easy conversation…but it was essential for the unity of the church.
#5 - Is there someone I need to encourage? See Philippians 2:3-4, if all of us in the church just followed the commands in these two verses then I am convinced that our churches would ALL become irresistible environments!
#6 - Am I allowing fear or frustration to take my focus off of who God is and what He’s called me to do? (If so see II Corinthians 4:16-18.)
#7 - Am I willing to take the steps of radical obedience that He is leading me to? (Hebrews 11:6)
#9 - Am I currently on a path that will allow what Paul wrote in II Timothy 4:6-8…if not then what corrections need to be made?
