How Do Leaders Experience the Life God Wants to Give?

2011-11-14 04.43.07God wants people to be ALIVE

Joyfully alive

Abundantly alive

Grace-filled alive

Personally connected via the Holy Spirit resurrection life

So what is essential to experiencing the LIFE God wants to give?

Read Psalm 131:1-3 (ESV) 

1 O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. 2  But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. 3  O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.

Implied in this Psalm is a subtle truth.  The stuff essential to being alive must come from outside of me.

It is true physically.  No food, no water, no air = no life

It is true emotionally.  No love, no hope, no goals = no life

It is true mentally.  No words, no images, no sounds = no life

We are infants trusting God to give our souls what they need to live.

Leaders enjoy and help others enjoy God’s menu for spiritual life.

What are you discovering to be the water, food and air for the soul that God provides for his children?
