Wednesday’s Theme — “Be Strong: Leader”

Posted: July 1, 2015 by John McCauley in Bible Study, Sr. Week

This morning, we started learning about our theme of the day, “Be Strong: Leader,” as Purple team captain Lee McGaughey directed our thoughts at the flagpole. Historically, July 1-3, 1863, the battle at Gettysburg was fought. There were over 50,000 casualties as this was the largest cannon fight in United States history. We can learn great lessons from the leadership during this battle.

“There are times when a corps commander’s life does not count.” — Major General Winfield Hancock

1. Be a strong and courageous leader

  • Joshua was a great example of a strong leader (Joshua 1)
  • Even when we’re afraid, we must be strong

2. Put others’ needs before your own

  • Philippians 2:1-8: “If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
  • To be a leader, we must first be a servant
  • We must be selfless, Christ-like
