What Every Discouraged Leader Needs to Remember

Page 1

Listen carefully as Jonathan Falwell, Senior Pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church (TRBC), encourages church leaders to trust God with every detail of their ministry and motivates them to stay faithful and grounded in the Word of God.

What hardships have you faced in your ministry? What did you do to get through those moments? How have people, especially those who have committed to work alongside you, disappointed you? How did you react to them?

Take a moment and pray that God will continue to heal your heart especially if you are currently hurting. Pray for those who have offended you and ask God to help you to love them.

Jonathan reminded us that God always comes through when we least expect it. God will surprise us and provide for us helpers or other leaders who will stand and work alongside us at the right moment in time. How has God surprised you in your ministry? Think about your current ministry team, how have they helped you?

Jonathan encouraged leaders to stay grounded doctrinally in the Word of God. Why do you think this is important? How does doctrine impact us when we are suffering?

Jonathan said, "We need to make sure we are pointing people to God not to man's ideas." That's true with our words and our actions. Pray through your hardships and pray for those who are watching, that they will see God's grace and love present in your life. 

                    So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There   
                       we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when   
                       we need it most.
                                                                                      ~ Hebrews 4:16, (NLT)
