MAKE THINGS BETTER
Today is really a conversation about GIFTING and LEADERSHIP.
When we arent honest about GIFTING we hold back our worship services.
When we dont assess GIFTING..we hold back our potential.
Leaders of companies that go from good to great start not with where but with who. They start by getting the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats.-Jim Collins/Good to Great
1 Peter 4:8, 10-11
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of Gods grace in its various forms. 11
If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen
Guitar Hero Battle at NP
-Although Im gifted at guitar
I STUNK at guitar hero
its a different skill. I helped our team LOSE because I wasnt good at it at all
it wasnt my thing.
When people operate..
-Doesnt seem like theyre trying
it comes natural.
-People talk about it
Did you hear? WOW
what a great job!
-Our souls are moved
The load is light…The feel is right -they dont hold your team back. Adding not detracting. Not burdensome.
-There is a general unrest/uneasiness in your spirit. When will this end.
When will this end…Dont do it again
Why do we operate OUTSIDE OF our gifting?
1.Need for approval
2.Need for community
3.No one has had the courage to tell us. I dont want to hurt them…
Keep in mind 1Peter 4:8
1. To be KNOWN
2. To be APPLAUDED
3. To be SEEN
1. To let Christ be KNOWN
2. To let Christ be applauded
3. To let Christ be seen IN US
The stage should never be used as a place to give someone a sense of false identity
LEADERSHIP ISNT ABOUT YOU POSSESSING ALL GIFTS. ITS ABOUT YOU IDENTIFYING GIFTS IN OTHERS AND SHEPHERDING THEM TOWARD THEIR GIFTING.
Identifying gifting and being prayerful and honest about helping people
