Yesterday, I had a few abstract thoughts of my last three years in ministry.
Furthermore, these thoughts were matched with the age Jesus was during his earthly ministry. Before moving on, I’d suggest reading the following post for context: Is Being Thirty Years of Age Significant?
Today, I’d like to take a quick look into Hebrews, chapter eleven. This is an awesome passage on faith and leadership! The author begins with a profound statement: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.‘ (Heb. 11:1-2)
Following this statement, the author uses an array of Old Testament fore-fathers to show the commendable faith that was shown during their lives. As I looked these names over, I had to admit that many of these men and women had a few more years than three!
In regards to yesterday’s post? Well, as I allow you to get personally involved with the space between my ears, I can not always promise logical thinking. However, I am certain that God has allowed our minds to travel to these places, so that we question how we are living our lives.
If you desire some encouraging words focused on faith and leadership in ministry, read through Hebrews eleven. Allow God to show you that being faithful is a long-standing, admirable character trait. Whether you’re just beginning your ministry-life or you only have a few years left; remain faithful and consider the years that you have a blessing from God.
How does faith and leadership develop over time?
