Amazing Testimony From Coffee Shop Conversations

Welcome to Part Five of this week's series on leadership. For Part Four, "Developing Godly Influence" you can click here. You can also read this article from our archives; "Servant Leadership."

Revelation 12:11(KJV) - And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Watch this amazing testimony. Each Thursday we gather at a coffee shop in downtown Atlanta, GA to discuss God's Word. When this man met us at Coffee Shop Conversations he was homeless, depressed, spiritually empty and had not eaten in 3 days. We had no idea of the challenges he was facing at the time but responded when he asked for prayer. We stood with him before The Lord and gave him some scriptures to meditate on. In a matter of weeks God turned his life around. Listen to his story.

Developing Godly Influence

Developing Godly Influence

Welcome to Part Four of this week's series on leadership. For Part Three, "Every Christian Should Be A Leader" you can click here. You can also read this article from our archives; "Servant Leadership."

“The act or power of producing an effect without apparent exertion of force or direct exercise of command” – Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary

An influential person doesn’t need to force anything. People just take notice.

Jeremiah 15:19(NLT) - This is how the LORD responds: “If you return to me, I will restore you so you can continue to serve me. If you speak good words rather than worthless ones, you will be my spokesman. You must influence them; do not let them influence you!

Today's message is simple. We are supposed to exert Godly influence wherever God sends us. We should inspire positive change in others. Many people in our society are natural-born followers. They can't think for themselves and are easily swayed by the things they see, hear and the people around them. Therefore, we have the perfect opportunity to sway them in the right direction.

How Do You Gain Influence?

1) The Golden Rule – If you do good things for people they will pay attention to what you have to say.

Romans 13:9(NLT) - For the commandments say, “You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.” These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

2) Be Consistent – People admire commitment because it inspires them.

Proverbs 22:29(AMP) - Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.

3) Be Proactive – Choose to lead. People follow people that are proactive.

1 Samuel 17:26-32(NKJV) - Then David spoke to the men who stood by him, saying, “What shall be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” 27 And the people answered him in this manner, saying, “So shall it be done for the man who kills him.” 28 Now Eliab his oldest brother heard when he spoke to the men; and Eliab’s anger was aroused against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride and the insolence of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle.” 29 And David said, “What have I done now? Is there not a cause?” 30 Then he turned from him toward another and said the same thing; and these people answered him as the first ones did. 31 Now when the words which David spoke were heard, they reported them to Saul; and he sent for him. 32 Then David said to Saul, “Let no man’s heart fail because of him; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.”

4) Uniqueness – People follow trend-setters.

Romans 12:1-2(NLT) - And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

5) Find Common Ground - People follow people they can relate to.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23(NKJV) - 19 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; 20 and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law; 22 to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 23 Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.

Every Christian Should Be A Leader

The Heart of The Anointing

Welcome to Part Three of this week's series on leadership. For Part Two, "Leadership Lessons From Jesus" you can click here. You can also read this article from our archives; "Servant Leadership."

Matthew 5:13-16(NKJV) - “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Good for nothing! That's right! Jesus called Christians who don't make a difference good for nothing. In other words, God asks Himself; "What's the use of these closet Christians? It's not like they matter anyway?" When God inserts a Christian into a situation it's for that person to make an impact for His Kingdom. If nothing is done, He's very disappointed.

Even a little salt adds flavor to a meal. God just wants you to add flavor where He puts you. Sometimes that requires a little input like a kind word or a positive suggestion, other times it requires much more. God doesn't always want you to make a big scene and try to take over the place. It's alright if you don't turn every conversation into a crusade or every hello into a Hallelujah.

Too much salt can completely destroy a good meal. Over the top Christians operating out of unnecessary zeal are like too much salt in a meal. You don't need to scare people away with religion, you just need to draw them to Christ with love, integrity and excellence. Just like each meal requires different amounts of salt, each situation is unique.

Every Christian Should Be A Leader

Mark 8:36-38(NKJV) - For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”

It's alright to take off the mask and let people know you're a Christian. Sometimes, you don't have to say it but you definitely need to show it when you get the opportunity. There's nothing to be ashamed of. The world is in darkness and you are the light. They need you.

Leadership Lessons From Jesus

Leadership Lessons From Jesus

Welcome to Part Two of this week's series on leadership. For Part One, "What Defines A Leader? Position Or Influence?" you can click here. You can also read this article from our archives; "Servant Leadership."

Philippians 2:5-11(NKJV) - Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

From the top to the bottom to the top! That's the story of Jesus. The giver of life gave His life then took it back so that we who were dead in sin could live again. He left His top position in heaven to become one of us just because He loved us and not because we deserved it. He gave up the opulence of His throne to walk among men.

Even though He walked away from His position it was that decision which made Him the most influential man to ever live. He considered it more important to win our hearts as an influential leader than to force us to obey Him due to His position. It was this decision which triggered a response from The Father like no other. He gave Jesus more authority than everyone in heaven, on earth and under the earth.

When The Apostle Paul says, "Let this mind be in you" in Philippians 2:5 he means think just like Jesus. Humble yourself before God and do His Will. Even if that means tirelessly serving in God's Kingdom without any consideration of your reputation. You should be concerned with being famous in heaven for your service to God even if you don't get much recognition on earth.

Leadership Lessons From Jesus

Luke 14:7-11(NKJV) - So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: 8 “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; 9 and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.’ Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you. 11 For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
