HOW DO YOU SEE THE CROWD? | For Church Leaders
One of the most common things that trips up a genuine church leader is the crowd. It’s not what the crowd does, but how we as Church Leaders [apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers] SEE THE CROWD. I recorded a short video to expound on two verses that show how the religious leaders saw the crowds and how Jesus saw the crowds.
When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy. They began to contradict what Paul was saying and heaped abuse on him. — Acts 13:45
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. — Matthew 9:36
Let’s fight to maintain a right spirit and use our influence to minister to the crowd and not allow ourselves to drift into simply using the crowd to build or validate ourselves.
Are you using your influence to serve the crowd or using the crowd to build your influence?
