Not Leading Purposefully?

Pursuing the church's purpose is not a matter of leadership style, personality, or following a current church fad.

Leading Purposefully is a Matter of Lining Up with God and His Word
 

1) God has included a good number of verses in His Word about us being purposeful, planning, and preparing in accordance with His ways.
 
Lk. 14:28-33; 1 Cor. 2:15-16; 9:24-27; 10:31; Eph. 5:15-17; Phil. 2:2; Heb. 10:24; 12:1-2
2) God Himself is purposeful.
 
Ex. 9:16; Ps. 33:11; 57:2; Prov. 16:4; Eccl. 3:1, 11, 17; Isa. 14:24; 25:1; 46:10; 55:11; Jer. 23:20; 29:11; 32:19; Rom. 8:28; 2 Cor. 5:5; Eph. 3:10-11; Phil. 2:13; 2 Tim. 1:9; Heb. 6:17
3) Jesus was purposeful in His time here on earth.
 
Mk. 1:35-39; Lk. 19:10; Jn. 6:38; 17:4; Rom. 14:9
4) God communicates the results of purposefully lining up with Him.
 
Prov. 12:5; 16:3; 21:5; 1 Cor. 3:12-15; Gal. 6:7-10; 1 Pet. 4:10; 1 Jn. 2:17
 
Read the above Bible verses and take time to reflect on how your leadership should be affected because of it. The Steering Your Church Toward God's Purposes Leadership Guide provides some thoughts to help you reflect and retool in order to be more purposeful in light of the teaching of God's Word.
