A Dose of Humility

Led More By Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Tim McCarthy shares about a discovery that is helping him to be led more by Jesus in all aspects of his life. Can you relate?

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”

1 Peter 5:6

It was the ‘last straw’! One of my kids had made another foolish and inconsiderate decision. Why would anyone want to do that? What was this child thinking! Tempers flared; I made my frustration abundantly clear. I expected this terrible thing to never happen again. After some huffing and puffing, my chastised child grudgingly acknowledged that it shouldn’t have happened. Satisfied, I returned to my own corner of the mat in victory. Continue Reading

Lead more to Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Bill Hogg (Arrow Class 11) gives us a charge to do the work of an evangelist and he provides practical suggestions for all of us to be engaged in proclaiming good news amongst pre-Christians, skeptics and explorers. Share this article with people in your leadership sphere and use it as a conversation-starter to define your own discipleship training and equipping game plan.

Many leaders become conversant with profiles like 16PF, Birkman and Myers-Briggs. Some savvy leaders can identify what their APEST (apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd, teacher) is. As a leader, you might self-describe as extroverted or introverted or discover that you land on one side of the intuitive-analytical spectrum.

The apostle Paul has timeless words that trump your personality profile or your self-description. This fearless, faithful gospel sage had an exhortation for a protégé, which is true for every Christian leader under the sun. Paul challenged Timothy, who methinks might have been a shepherd-teacher, with an enduring exhortation: Do the work of an evangelist (2 Tim. 4:5). Just do it! Continue Reading

3 Leadership Principles We Can Learn from Shepherds

| 25th Anniversary, To The Point | Comments Off on 3 Leadership Principles We Can Learn from Shepherds

Leading More Like Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Sharon Simmonds (Arrow Class 16) briefly explores the imagery of shepherding in the Bible, and draws three leadership principles that will guide and enable us to lead more like Jesus. As you reflect on how Jesus embodies shepherding, as the Leader of leaders, share and discuss what it means to lead more like a shepherd in your family, church, or organization. 

I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding. Jeremiah 3:15 NIV

Interested to learn more about the connection between shepherding and leadership, I visited and interviewed two local shepherds. One comment greatly intrigued me: a calm shepherd creates a calm atmosphere, whereas a rushed or abrupt shepherd creates unsettled and jittery responses in the sheep. This logical insight caused me to reflect on Jesus the good Shepherd and to consider what it might look like for me to lead more like Him – like a shepherd after His own heart. Continue Reading

“Come with Me,” a Call to Walk with Jesus

| 25th Anniversary, General Leadership, To The Point | Comments Off on “Come with Me,” a Call to Walk with Jesus

Led More By Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Hollis Kim (Arrow Class 3) reflects on the first disciples Jesus called to be with him, and how they were attentive, available and responsive to be led by him. Share this article with some friends who might be interested to cultivate, with you, an appetite and aptitude for being led more by Jesus. 

In Mark 1:16-20, Jesus invites four fishermen to follow him on a journey – a journey of being led by Jesus, becoming a new person. This invitation is a calling, a vocation, first to be with him. Jesus gives no details, no specifics about where he is going, but he does make this intriguing promise: “I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women…”

This call of Christ is an invitation to relationship, student-hood and follower-ship.

These first invitees of Jesus immediately and unquestioningly responded. They dropped everything they were doing, leaving behind all that was familiar: their identity, their work/business, their family and prosperity. Jesus was so compelling, they left it all.  Continue Reading
