The Church should lead the culture in innovation.
Limited resources + willingness to fail + increasing passion = exponential innovation (Mark 2)
We often think “We can’t because we don’t.”
We should think, “We can because we don’t.”
God guides by what He provides; however, sometimes He guides by what He withholds.
Willingness to fail
Too many church leaders think failure is missing God but failure is often the first step toward success.
We think, “Failure is not an option”. The fear of failure drives us to stop taking risks and to live without faith.
Failure is an event not a person. God uses failure to shape you. If you are not failing now and then, you are playing it way too safe.
I would rather please God by thinking too big than insult him by thinking too small.
We think, “We want to reach people for Christ.”
We should think, “We have to reach people for Christ.”
You’re not going to lead people to Jesus unless you sometimes smell like smoke.
