Ordinary, Faithful, Cruciform Leaders
Topic: Sunday Morning Passage: 1 Corinthians 3:18–4:16
Theme: The crucified and exalted Messiah adds to and strengthens his church through the work of ordinary, faithful, cruciform leaders.
I. Ordinary Leaders, not Rock Stars
II. Faithful Servants, not Motivational Speakers
III. Cruciform Examples, not Prosperity Preachers
Questions to consider: Have you placed too much hope in human leaders? How do you evaluate or criticize your pastors, elders, deacons? What would it look like to evaluate leaders by one principle: are they faithful to the Word of the One who sent them?
