Defining Leadership

July 29, 2008

How do you define leadership?  Especially in a period of time where there isn’t much evidence of “solid” leadership.  

How would you define “spiritual” leadership?  Take a look within your family, your social circle, your church, etc.  

Pastor John Piper, says this in his article, “The Marks of a Spiritual Leader”, “Everyone has the responsibility of leadership in some relationships.”  

What about “biblical” spiritual leadership?  Is there a difference between this one and one of the other ones? Or are all three the same or do they share some similarities?


O Great God

July 14, 2008

O great God of highest heav’n,

Occupy my lowly heart.

Own it all and reign supreme,

Conquer every rebel pow’r.

Let no vice or sin remain

That resists Your holy war.

You have loved and purchased me,

Make me Yours forever more.


I was blinded by my sin,

Had no ears to hear Your voice,

Did not know Your love within,

Had no taste for heaven’s joys.

Then Your Spirit gave me kife,

Opened up Your Word to me;

Through the Gospel of Your Son,

Gave me endless hope and peace.


Help me now to live a life

That’s dependent on Your grace.

Keep my heart and guard my soul

From the evils that I face.

You are worthy to be praised

With my every thought and deed.

O great God of highest heav’n,

Glorify Your name through me.
