On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
Life begins at the end of our comfort zone. Do you live in fear of failure or are you locking your doors of your heart to new opportunities. When you let in the spirit of Christ you open yourself to empowerment.
The Law of Empowerment
The job of leadership is to lead with the intent to work yourself out of a job. Imagine what would happens if our politico’s did this! This is what Jesus did. After Christ gave His Peace to the apostles he breathed on them to receive the power of the Holy Spirit and thus empowered them to live the supernatural life. We in turn by the power of the successors of the apostles are heirs to this. Christ wants us to be change agents to bring about the Kingdom. How can we begin? What steps can we take to mentor and empower others?
1. Pray for conviction and vision.
2. Select a person or group from your sphere of influence to mentor.
3. Meet and discuss expectations and goals.
4. Cast a vision to them for spiritual reproduction.
5. Ask for commitment.
6. Determine what tools or resources you will use together.
7. Prepare yourself and set goals for each meeting.
8. Meet regularly for a set time.
9. Discuss and apply the truths you learn together.
10. Invest yourself in the person, the process, and the purpose.
11. Help them find a potential person to mentor.
12. Evaluate and launch them to try the process themselves.
Reflect today on our own Declaration of Independence for freedom from the English Crown.
We hold these truths to be self-evident:
That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
