Ok Seth you guessed 10% of leaders practice this, well my guess 2%. How many times do we hear minister tell of their fears and failures???
Yes Seth, indeed self-protection isn’t Jesus’ way of leading… He also said, “Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.” (John 12:27)
Could this be another reason many of our discipleship methods produce more weak than strong believers? Are we led by masquerades whose real personality can best be seen at home…in the bedroom…bathroom? I didn’t say boardroom…
Anytime I tell a story of how I messed up, brethren around are mute for a brief moment that could seem like an hour. I guess they are trying to readjust to the shock. “He shouldn’t say such things in public…” is the expression on their faces.
May our model be Jesus…He even cried, “My Father, My Father, why have you forsaken me?” I can’t stop wondering why He had to say it. He should have just thought it in His heart and that way, people wont know He’s ignorant.
Thanx for the blogs Seth. You are a blessing.
