MY GOD WILL SUPPLY
Passing the Baton of Leadership
Text: Joshua 1:1-9
I.THE PREVIOUS SHEPHERD WASN’T INDISPENSABLE, Vss 1-2
II.GOD’S SUCCESSION PLANS ARE IN PLACE LONG BEFORE THE NEED IS KNOWN
III.GOD’S MISSION IS THE #1 PRIORITY
IV.INDISPENSABLE CHARACTER TRAITS FOR SERVANT LEADERSHIP:
1. A Servant’s Heart
2. A Humble Heart
3. A Teachable Heart
4. A Broken Heart
i. God secures your salvation, your sanctification & thus your eternal destiny because “He is able” because He is God.
ii. Even when great troubles & sorrows, along w/temptations & trials, come upon us --- He is able.
iii. Beyond that, God is able to meet every need in your life & His church. He will use you in His service until you are face to face with Jesus.
iv. Finally, as our bodies grow weaker & visits to a myriad of physicians seem like a daily occurrence, but remember what Paul told Pastor Timothy, “he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
