Leadership Summit- Part 1, "People You Can't Help"

This past Saturday we had our bi-monthly leadership summit. Below are the notes of what I shared with our team as we head to the next level organizationally & as a church. The first part is a reminder that as much as we want to help people, there are some people that you can't help.

1. You cannot help someone who does not believe that they have a PROBLEM.
Proverbs 26:12 (NIV) “Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.”
2. You cannot help someone who believes that YOU are their problem.
(example- Pharisees & Religious Leaders that crucified Jesus)
3. You cannot help someone who desires a different OUTCOME then God does.
Jonah 1:3 (NIV) “But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish...”
4. You cannot help someone who refuses a SCRIPTURAL solution to their problem.
Hosea 14:9 (NIV) “Who is wise? He will realize these things. Who is discerning? He will understand them. The ways of the LORD are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.”
5. You cannot help someone who expects You to make a greater INVESTMENT in them then they are willing to make in themselves.
Joshua 1:8, (NIV) “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”
6. You cannot help someone who consistently chooses RELATIONSHIPS that destroy them.
Proverbs 13:20 (NIV) “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.”
7. You cannot help someone who leads others ASTRAY.
Galatians 5:9 (NIV) "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."

So Who can you Help? HUMBLE PEOPLE (see Proverbs (NLT) 9:7-12)

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a

My Back Story- Week 1- How To Break Your Confidence Crisis

My Back Story-  Part 1 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”   Hebrews 10:35 Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald Key Thought-  Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”   Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT) Faith  is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence  Confidence  is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing.  “The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”  Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV) When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel: Inadequate  --  Inferior
