Imagine being Mary or Martha and seeing your bother, who had been dead for 4 days, come back to life. How would you respond?

Recently, I did some training on Leading Like Jesus while meeting with leaders from Central Asia. One delegate came up after a session with tears in her eyes and said, “We have only known the ‘Pharisee-way’ in our churches. We thought it was right because everyone used this method. Now we see a different model. This is so freeing.”
We remain amazed at how the Spirit regularly brings repentance when leaders see themselves in the Pharisees and ‘see’ what Jesus thinks of it. They often go through some brokenness in how they have failed Jesus as leaders. This often results in a heart to follow His model.
We praise Him for His patience with us as we seek to more closely align ourselves with His ways.
MentorLink partnered with Jesus.Net to produce a new video discipling series called “The I AM Series”. Like Days with Jesus, this series uses a short video clip from a film based on the Gospel of John. In this series we draw out Jesus’ seven I Am statements.
Let us know what you think and how it impacts you. As in all we do in MentorLink, our heart is to draw people to Jesus to live, lead and influence people to be more like Him.
