What makes you a leader?
Is it your gift to teach, your gift to preach or the charismatic way that you present yourself?
Maybe it's your flashy business card, your awesome website or the fact that your videos have been seen on the internet so many times.
Is this what makes a true leader?
No, what makes a true leader is the heart to serve. Not serve oneself, but serve others.
I find that in my daily Christian walk, I've encountered more titles than leaders, this is a very sad statement.
Too many leaders are walking around with visions of grandeur and their heads in the clouds.
Meanwhile, forgetting the very people that they are supposed to be serving on this earth.
Being a true leader is not about networking, looking good or self promotion.
It's about servanthood.
When you read The Word, you will not find anywhere that Jesus needed to promote Himself or have others serve Him, hand and foot.
Instead if you read John chapter 13 verses 1-17 you will find the opposite.

Verses 14-15 read:
And if your Lord and teacher has washed your feet, you should do the same for each other.
I have set the example, and you should do for each other exactly what I have done for you.

Here we see Jesus showing us an example of what leadership is really all about. So my question is why are so many people still walking around in the church, hurting,
broken hearted and in need of deliverance. The answer is because the very people that need to minister to them, are in need of deliverance themselves.
When the title becomes more important than the calling, the time has come to repent.

As leaders we need to examine ourselves daily and make sure our hearts and motives are pure. If not, we need to go back to basics, and realize that leadership is a calling and a privilege. We also need to keep in mind who called us, and what the calling
is really all about.

I am a husband and father of 4 children. I am a servant for my Lord
and King. I pray your are blessed with what God has given me.

It's 6 in the morning. The alarm clock is buzzing, and you're thinking to yourself, "What's the point in getting up this early for work?" For some of us, the motivation is simply the desire to shut off the clock that is vibrating off the nightstand. But for others, it is truly self-motivation. It is an internal alarm clock that motivates a person to make the best of his or her day.

by bruno sebrechts  
God has entrusted us with his word and his Spirit to lead us all the way. The word and the Spirit are not separate components that function independently (Isa 59:21).

The Holy Spirit never puts the word aside; he makes full use of it. God can lead us in many ways, but his word is always the crucial guide and benchmark. If we think we can draw solely on the wind of the Holy Spirit, we are like a sailboat without a solid rudder.

Personal experiences, regardless of how special they may be, are not the basis of our faith. At the birth of Christ, God gave the wise men from the East a strange phenomenon: they saw the star of the birth of a special king. The star brought them to Jerusalem, where they received scriptural confirmation and specification. Only after gaining this scriptural information did the star bring them to Jesus (Matt 2:4–6).

The shepherds saw an impressive angelic host praising God. But the issue was not the special visual experience itself. The angels delivered a clear message, confirming the biblical prophecies, and it was that message that led the shepherds to Christ (Luke 2:10–14Isa 9:6).

We must—especially in spiritual warfare—never be driven by excitement, enthusiasm, or pragmatism, thinking to ourselves: “It is not entirely in accordance with the principles of Scripture, but I have faith, and it feels good” or, “It seems to work, and many are convinced, so it must be the right path!” No, we must continue to build on the reliable word, regardless of our convictions or level of maturity.

The Holy Spirit is not a lively, colorful fountain, with the word as a contrastingly dry source of information. Only together do word and Spirit form an inexhaustible source of beauty, strength and wisdom. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit, as well as allow the word to dwell abundantly in our hearts (Eph 5:18Col 3:16).

But since God’s word and God’s Spirit can both be misunderstood, and we humans tend to bend everything in our favor, we must remain vigilant. Jesus tells us that a wise man hears the word and acts upon it (Matt 7:24). A mere passive receptiveness to the word and the Spirit is not sufficient. Only when we accept them with a correct attitude will we prosper. There is a constant struggle between God’s truth and human error. But those who passionately seek God in his revealed word, willing to put it in practice, find in that word “a lamp to [their] feet and a light for [their] path” (Ps 119:105).

He also discusses grieving his Godly wife Lois Evans, rebuking his church member Kirk Franklin, the role of women in the church and in the home, racial reconciliation, his Jewish mentor Martin Resnick, and being the first African American to have a Study Bible and a full Bible commentary as well as a successor at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. BCNN1 editors believe that when Tony Evans goes on up a little higher to heaven this article will be one of the classic go-to articles to understand, at close the end of his life, how he was directing Christians in America and Christians around the world based upon the word of God. Dr. Tony Evans has a God-given ability to answer difficult questions quickly, biblically, and accurately. This interview is masterful. He is finishing very well. Glory be to God. Dr. Tony Evans, we at BCNN1 thank God for you and we are praying for you and we love you in the Lord. As you know and as we know, the Christians in America and in the world will not obey you but don’t be discouraged, you did your part and that’s all that you can do. You’re finishing strong. Glory be to God.

(RNS) — Pastor Tony Evans was mentored by male elders early in his life and is now a father figure himself to younger men.

The radio broadcaster and leader of Dallas’ Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship has written a new book, “Kingdom Men Rising: A Call to Growth and Greater Influence.”

The pastor of the predominantly Black megachurch outlines in the volume, released Tuesday (April 6), his belief that Christian men are responsible for changing themselves, their families, their churches and their communities — with divine assistance.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Evans, who is “definitely on the mend” from a February coronavirus diagnosis, turns his attention to other crises, including issues of racial justice, and writes about the spiritual roles he thinks men should have in addressing them.

Evans, 71, spoke with Religion News Service about the death of his wife, Lois, less than two years ago, possible succession plans and how he advised gospel artist Kirk Franklin after a family dispute became public.

The interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Your book is about what you believe should be the role of men in church and society. But you start by remembering your wife, Lois, who you said was ready for her death in 2019 even if you were not. How has coping with her loss changed you as a man?

It’s caused me to go deeper in my faith, in my responsibility. I still have four children, 13 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. And I want to reflect my love for her in how I lead them and continue the legacy she left behind. Her fingerprints are all over my life, my ministry, and my family and I want to keep that legacy so I am going deeper with God. What I’m calling men to do, I want to be doing myself at a deeper level.

You say more than once in your book that going to church isn’t enough and there needs to be action and not just talk, that “God is still waiting for men to take the first steps of faith.” What steps are you hoping men will take?

When it comes to church, they must not only attend. They must serve. What area are you serving in your church that ministers to somebody else outside of you? You can’t be just a taker in and not a dispenser of God’s goodness.

In these days with much controversy and debate about women’s roles in the church and elsewhere — such as Beth Moore’s recent departure from the Southern Baptist Convention — where do you see women fitting in the picture as you write about “Kingdom Men Rising”?

First of all, we must recognize the equality of women in God’s created order. Women should be honored, they should be valued. They should not be abused or misused or downgraded by men. At the very same time, the Bible does give a distinction in roles, just like there is in the Trinity between God the Father and God the Son. So, we should utilize and recognize, appreciate and value the gifts, the talents, the skills and the calling of women, as they have been given by God. But what we should not do is allow those things to take away from what men have been called to do. There is this downgrading of men in society, much to our fault, of course, because of our failure, which has opened the door for a lot of the criticism of men, but men need to still own their role while recognizing and appreciating the creative genius God has given women.

Do you think women have roles, as you write men do, to rise up and be examples for their families, churches and communities?

Every Christian has that role but when God created Adam before Eve, he created Adam because Adam would be held ultimately responsible. The Bible says, “In Adam, all die.” When Adam and Eve sinned, he said, “Adam, where are you?” not “Adam and Eve, where are y’all?” So there is a lead role God has called men to take and own, and we shouldn’t shy away from that.

You say racial reconciliation should go beyond Christians playing a video of a nonwhite preacher at a white church, or vice versa, or posting online that they’ve read a book like “White Fragility.” What else should people be doing?

Here’s where the church, which helped foster a lot of this division, needs to step up to the plate. We have a three-point plan for Christians to change their community, and that is when you come together to serve somebody else worse off than you. So what that means is you adopt a public school together where you serve the average students in that school. The Christians in those churches adopt the police precinct and become the bridge between the police department and the community. It’s where every church in that gathering adopts a homeless family and brings them to self-sufficiency. So the way you have unity is through serving somebody else, not just by having sensitivity meetings.

You describe a mentor of yours, a Jewish businessman, Martin Resnick, who helped pay for your first year of college. How does his legacy fit into the lessons you are teaching about supporting the next generation?

A great deal, because what that did was expose me to a bigger world. I was in a small world in urban Baltimore growing up. I hadn’t seen much outside of my community. He let me see a world of business, a world of economics, a world of entrepreneurialism that was much bigger. When I saw that bigger world, it gave me bigger vision. That’s where my burden for the next generation helped to come from — because too many of our young people are living in too small a world, and therefore they possess too small a vision. I want to make sure they see the potential of what they can be and to align that potential to their relationship to God, who has a unique ability to make dreams come true. So I use my story to inspire their story.

In recent weeks, Kirk Franklin, who has cited you as a mentor and father figureapologized for an obscenity-laced audio that he said was released by his oldest son after they had an argument. Did you have any reaction to this turn of events and/or are you advising him?

I had a big reaction. I called him. When I heard about it, I corrected him. I told him he needed to apologize publicly since the rant went public. I know about the situation in the family and I know how that situation could have led to an escalation of anger. But what he did was let righteous indignation become unrighteous communication, and he was both challenged and corrected for that. And that’s part of the accountability that every man needs in his life.

You became the first African American with both a study Bible and a full-Bible commentary with your name, you have continued to lead your various ministries and you have said you don’t have plans to retire. So, what’s next?

One of the things is seeing how we are going to reshape things in light of COVID because it has re-situated how people work, how we return to worship. The big thing is the next generation, because we want our ministry to outlive us. We still have some new books coming out this year. So we’re just expanding what we have already built and taking it deeper and transferring it as we go along.

Do you have a successor in mind?

(laughs) Well, my son, Jonathan Evans, is working with me a lot more. And so we’re just going to see whether that naturally happens. We don’t want to do anything that’s unnatural — and that has to be welcomed and not just by me but by our congregation — but that is one option we are looking at.

We are called to be mighty women of God. We are called to be mighty women of God. We call to be mighty women of God, say it with me. We are called to be my women of God. I don't care what you've been through. I don't care how bad your week is going I promise you you are called to be mighty. 

 

We need women who will pray, who will fast, who will worship who are tired of waiting on everybody else to do it. Who will keep hammering in prayer. Hammering and fasting hammering and saying you're getting out of my family you're getting out of my home, I'm not gonna let drugs win, I'm not gonna let addiction win! I'm not gonna Let unforgiveness win! I'm not gonna let hell tear my family all to pieces through rebellion. It's going over the wall and I have power and victory in Jesus name. A a woman of God You have authority, women of God to get ruthless with devils and demons and say I will have no sympathy no division in my family and in my home I can throw you over the wall and I tell you what Satan is afraid of. is women who are not only faithful to God, faithful to their families, faithful to their husbands, faithful to their children, faithful to what God has called them to do, but they're peaceable, they are a peacemaker. They have a peaceable spirit, not a troublemaking spirit,  The Bible teaches us in Ephesians 6:10

 

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.

 

It's why there's  witnesses cheering us on. Because it's our turn right here and there will be the mighty men and women who were willing in the midst of much fear, instead of getting the virus and fear, they were willing to stand up on their feet and fight the good fight with a shield of faith in one hand and a sword of the Spirit which is the word of God in the other hand. And you want on that list, and so do I, because I was called to be a mighty woman of God.

 

There is something to be said for an enterprising woman. Somebody who, every day when they wake up and before they go to bed, they are thinking about everything that is going to take to make their life a life of quality. They are not sitting around hoping something good happens today. They made up in their mind, I'm gonna make something good happen today then I sit around hoping and wishing and thinking and believing that something's gonna drop out of the sky, but there is something down in her that says, I've got to be busy.

I've got to be about something: I've got to be building something that I can take pride in,  and the people around me can take pride in. If I know that I'm going to establish something in this earth that makes the world a better place. I know how I'm gonna be when I get in America. I know how I'm gonna be when I run a business, when I get the job I'll, never treat anyone like that. I know how I'm gonna do it. I just don't know when I'm ever gonna get the job. I know how, but I don't know where, but I'm still preparing, like God is going to tell me somewhere along this journey, that x marks the spot that if you keep walking and draggin all of your tools and all of your experiences, somebody needs to be a bag lady in this season, I'm not leaving nothing behind I'm taking everything with me, because when I get to the spot where God tells me to build, I promise you I'm gonna build an altar. When a wise woman builds, She builds, her hands are busy. She is busy making decisions about her finances and about her family and about her health. She is always bringing things into her life that are building towards something that she can take pride in.

Competition: The Heart of A Man

Jesus himself affirmed his disciples when they expressed a desire to be first. He told them exactly how to do it. Shouldn't we conclude that even Jesus understood that some people simply get more excited when they have the ability to compete against other people? If we can introduce that dynamic back into faith somehow, won't we reach a lot of men who feel that Christianity is a good story but is lacking something?

Many Christians believe that pursuing our goals goes against certain Christian beliefs and counteracts whatever plan God has in store for us. On the contrary - Scriptures encourage us to pursue our goals and achieve success.

 

Consider these passages from the Bible:

 

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” 

 

1 Chronicles 4:10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request.”

 

The Promise of God

 

In Jeremiah, God tells you there is a plan for you: a wonderful and amazing plan. It’s a plan for success and joy.

 

Where did God plant that plan? In your heart, of course! God has given you the desire to succeed and manifest His work in this world.

 

The question is, “How do I find that plan?”

 

Since God planted the plan in your heart, look in your heart. Look prayerfully.

 

Try these strategies to discover this plan:

  1. What is your passion? Your passion holds the dreams which God planted in your heart. Follow your passion.

  2. Are you pushing it away? Is there something niggling in the back of your mind you're trying to avoid? Bring it to the forefront. Look at it clearly. This may contain God's plan for you that your ego wants to avoid. Your ego is that part of you that wants your will, not God's.

  3. The "What then?" trick. Ask yourself, “Once I achieve that goal, what then would I want?” Keep asking "what then" until you have this deep ah-ha experience that says, "That's it. That's the ultimate plan for my life."

Trust in God's Promise

God's not going to give you the entire plan at once.

 

After all, you might get scared if you discovered God wanted you to begin a world-wide coaching business that would require writing three books a year for the next 10 years, managing a staff of 100 people, and others being jealous of you or speaking untruths about you.

God doesn't seem to write with straight lines. The path may meander about, especially when you interject your own will. God then re-writes the path and you're set again.

The key is trusting that God has everything in hand, even when you can't see more than 10 feet in front of you.

The Prayer of Jabez

 

Once you know the direction you're going, even if you only know the first step or two, let God know you're ready.

 

Consider these ideas found in the story of Jabez:

1. Jabez asked God to "bless me and enlarge my territory."  You can ask God to:

  • Bless you with the wisdom, knowledge, and resources needed to accomplish His plan for you.

  • Bless your business, so it expands in every way according to God's will for you.

2. Then Jabez requested, "Let your hand be with me…"

  • Ask God to guide and direct you, to inspire you, and let you know each succeeding step.

  • Tell God that you'll listen to His messages to you. Stay in communication with God through prayer.

3. Lastly, Jabez asked, "… keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain."

  • Ask for God's protection in every area of your life - for you, your family, and your business.

  • Implied in your request is that your actions will be according to God's word.

4. Then, you're told that God granted his request.

  • God promised through Jeremiah that He has plans for you: "… plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

When you’re living God's plan for you and asking for assistance, the goals you set will be according to that plan. Your goals are God's goals for you. You can crush those goals and all your future ones as well.
