The Greatest Leadership In The World Today Is…

I have commented on this many times but I have the privilege of attending Fellowship Bible Church where Dr. Crawford Loritts is our Senior Pastor.  Today’s message was from I John 2:23 – 3:3.  It’s not talked about often, but after reading this passage I have come to the realization that the greatest leadership in the world today is Jesus Christ leading his children from this life all the way to Heaven

Leaders love power quotes.  Here are Crawford’s from today.  Enjoy and please use them yourself.

  1. Too often Christianity runs parallel with our lives.  Often we line up our Christianity with what we want to see happen in our lives.  We need to avoid accomodation and become fully committed.
  2. For the follower of Christ, there is nothing permanent here.  Nothing requires our heart’s attachment.  Living for Heaven gives meaning here.
  3. Living the Christian life should provide an alternative to the watching world.
  4. Where you are going (Heaven) determines present priorities and behavior.
  5. There is a difference between Acceptance and Acceptability.  Acceptance requires grace.  Acceptability requires permission.
  6. A non-Christian sinning is a creature sinning against its creator.  A Christian sinning is a child sinning against its Father.

For more quotes from Crawford, go to Leadership From A Firehose and his Quote page.

Tomorrow I will be posting Leadership Lessons From Toy Story 3.  Talk to you soon.
