Grace Leadership

Here’s an important lesson I am learning and that is I am a grace leader, not a praise and worship leader but a grace leader.  We need more grace leaders in the church.  Singing about God’s grace is truly amazing but I am sometimes amazed at my own lack of grace shown toward others .  God’s grace towards me challenges me to extend grace, be an example of grace as a ministry leader and speak with grace.  I must sprinkle grace into my conversations and my daily living.  Grace talk leaves people wondering how could they be so kind and tenderhearted?  How can they be so loving and forgiving toward each other?   It can only be done by and through the grace of God.  I must keep focused on how gracious God is towards me so I can be gracious towards others.    I am learning more and more, there should be sprinkles of grace throughout my conversations and daily living.  I have learned when expressing my frustrations always remember to keep it a conversation, not an accusation.  Ephesians 4:32(NLT) helps me lead with grace.  It says,  Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another just as God, through Christ has forgiven you.

Daily Challenge-Growing Up

Living on pitch is not an easy task.  There are daily challenges and often pride gets in the way of us staying in tune with the Master.  I’ve learned to be aware of issues of pride in my heart and  often say to myself,  “warning:  The power and control you think you have may be too much for you.”  I just finished a Bible Study series at my church on the 6 things God hates and it was so powerful.  There is so much I need to work on and I am grateful for being challenged  by the Word of God and the people of God.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for warnings, stop signs and detours every day.

Proverbs 6: 16-19( ESV)  There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
