Leaders worth following, and followers worth leading

Are you a follower worth leading?

Churches are made up of leaders and followers.  We are at the end…it has taken us 38 sermons to work our way through 1st Corinthians. Along the way, we have hit a lot of tough topics, and it has been good.  This was a letter written from one man to a church he started, to people he loved. He was their first leader.

It takes more than just Paul to build and sustain this church. Today we meet some of the others who were involved.  We have all been in positions, whether church or work where we have different leaders in our life. Some we easily respect and some are more difficult. What does it mean to be a godly leader that people will follow? What does it mean to be a godly follower?

 

Let’s see what is going on with some of the key people in the development of this church! Prepare for tomorrow’s sermon by reading 1st Corinthians 16:5-24. Last week we looked at this same section of verses, but we were focusing on the teaching sections. Tomorrow we focus on the people.
