Jesus truly demonstrates the life of a secure leader. From the very beginning of His ministry He heard God call him His “Beloved Son.” Later on Jesus speaks about His security with the Father:

“… whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that he Himself does; and He will show Him greater works…” (John 15:19-20)

It is amazing to see this security, and how it was evident in various situations in Jesus’ life. Remember the situation where many people left Jesus because they could not understand His teachings? Jesus turned to the twelve disciples and asked them, “Do you also want to leave?” This secure leader was not even afraid that they would leave him; he gave them all freedom of choice. Their response was, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” (John 6:68)

Encountering God’s grace, His unconditional love and Jesus’ finished work will help us become secure leaders too. In this teaching letter we present an extract from an article on grace and leadership. We pray that God will minister to you as you study this article.

The second article is from the book “Living the Better Covenant.” A pastor in Ethiopia got a hold of this book, and when I met him a few months later, 29 other pastors had already borrowed and read this one book. I pray it will be a great blessing for you too.

After 7 years as the editor of GGN it is now time to hand the leadership over to others. I take this opportunity to give thanks to all – it has been an exciting journey and a great joy. GGN provides teaching on the gospel of God’s grace to ministers and churches worldwide. Be encouraged to continue on this journey of Grace and bring others with you as well.  God bless you!
