10 - God Does Not Want Your Training

You find all of Dr. Webber teaching under the menu "Leadership".

Jesus formed His leaders personally. He called them first to be “with Him.”

webber.jpgHe appointed twelve - designating them apostles - that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons. {bible}Mark 3:14-15{/bible}

Leaders build leaders, and Jesus took personal responsibility for each of the leaders He built. He did not delegate this to a “leadership development department” within His ministry.

5. Jesus demonstrated the way of the cross before His leaders.

webber.jpgSuffering is a vital part of the Christian life. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him, (Phil. 1:29)
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him… (2 Tim. 2:12)

…now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials [not only persecution, but “all kinds” of suffering]. These have come so that your faith…may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Pet. 1:6-7)

…those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. (1 Pet. 4:19)

5 - He Taught the Word of God to His Leaders

6. The teaching of the Word of God was central in Jesus' method.

webber.jpgJesus was a teacher. Of course, His teaching was not only by words; He also demonstrated he truths He taught to His disciples. His personal example illustrated and authenticated what He taught. Moreover, He led His disciples into their own personal experiences of the truth. Yet, at the heart of it all - and surrounding it all - was His teaching of the Word of God.

The teaching of the Word was central in Jesus' ministry. Many times in the gospels we read that Jesus “began to teach….” He taught in public, He taught in large groups, He taught in small groups, He taught individuals privately, He taught the lost, He taught His followers, He taught His emerging leaders. The Word of God was central in His life, His ministry and His method.

The Lord Jesus Christ was the greatest Builder of leaders.

webber.jpg1. Jesus focused on a few. His vision was huge (Matt. 13:31-32). His vision was a church that would eventually number in the hundreds of millions! His vision was the taking of the gospel of the Kingdom of God to all nations! Yet He focused on a few men - 12 to be exact. Twelve men to change the world. Twelve men to whom He would commit the monumental task of building His church. And one of them failed, leaving Him only 11 in the end! With these few men He spent His time; into these few men He poured His life; to these few men He committed His entire future agenda for the world.

From this we can learn that when it comes to building leaders it is better to do a lot with a few than to do a little with many.

2 - He Taught His Leaders To Pray

3. Jesus taught His leaders to pray.

webber.jpgOne day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say…” (Luke 11:1-2)
Jesus not only prayed Himself but He taught His disciples to pray also. Jesus not only knew God Himself but He led His disciples to know the Father also.

John the Baptist also built his leaders the same way: he taught them to pray. This is one of the first responsibilities of a leader who is building another: he must lead him to know God.
