Graham Cooke: ​I think the responsibility of leadership in church is to produce a people like Jesus

Standard

I think the responsibility of leadership in church is to produce a people like Jesus, not to do slick meetings or simply figure out how to get 5,000 people through your facility in a weekend. Let’s be a people who are actually producing something on the ground that could totally annihilate the enemy in our city. That’s our job!
(from The Overcoming Life 2: Rules Of Engagement)

The wisdom from above

Standard


But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity). And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].
James 3:17‭-‬18 AMPC
