While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. John 17:12 (KJV)

What a testimony!

The AMP says,

While I was with them, I was keeping them in your name which you have given Me; and I guarded them and protected them, and not one of them was lost except the son of destruction so that the scripture would be fulfilled.

You’ve got to cater for the flock of the Lord in your care as you would children.

Leadership is a skill. It is not delivered to you by the Holy Ghost; it is cultivated.

As a Minister of the Gospel, know that the Word of God will not stay with you because you knew it, it will stay with you because you constantly know it.

I have discovered that the sheep can be traced to the shepherd. The same way we can be traced to Christ. What you teach God’s people will make up only about 35 percent of what they learn from you. The other percent is made of your normal personal interaction with them.

As a shepherd, you must grow inward to grow outward. This means that your personal growth and walk with the Lord will set the pace for the work of the Lord in your hands. You cannot give what you do not have.

1 Peter 2:2 gives the principle of growth for every Child of God. Every babe desires to be fed the sincere milk of the Word. Once you start feeding them, they will respond.

The first place of parenting and discipleship is to keep the child alive and grow them. When a newborn babe becomes hungry, hot, uncomfortable or dirty, the only way they communicate their feelings and needs is by crying. A parent cannot be upset because the child is crying. you have to identify what the problem is and solve it. And amazingly, it might not be what you are thinking.

Learn not to judge and jump to conclusion in leadership. This is the worst mistake you can make. Find out what the problem is by interacting with them not necessarily what they tell you.

Sometimes in your place of prayers, the Lord grants you the ability to properly discern what the problem is.

I am a leader with a difference. I guard and protect the flock of my Master.

Acts 20:28
