Christine Caine’s Message to Christian Leaders
I’m live blogging from Catalyst Conference. Catalyst is a next-generation conference that embolden leaders from all over the world. The theme of Catalyst for 2015 is “Awaken the Wonder.” Wonder invites potential. Wonder provides vision. Wonder inspires. Wonder leads us to God. Christine is a lover of Jesus, wife to Nick, and mum to Catie and Sophie. She travels the globe preaching, teaching and advocating for justice.
God is able to do awesome and amazing things. Why can’t you and I as a believe of Christ look at our vision with so much passion?
We have the greatest story to tell because the story points to a greater story of God. We need to rise up because God is great and we need to share his message.
We live in a world full of signs and miracles. We can live in the midst of signs and miracles but can miss out the big destiny God has for you. The greatest days are ahead of us not behind us. Whatever sphere of influence you are in, as followers of Jesus Christ, our primary responsibility is to lead people to Jesus. Therefore, we are all leaders. Whether you are stay-at-home mom, CEO of Fortune 500, the position and the title and sphere of influence is secondary to our primary purpose – that is we are to lead others to Jesus.
What we are talking about is not about self-help or self-actualization. Your perspective will determine other person’s destiny. God’s not obligated to sustain what you started. The fact that you are saved is a miracle. The fact that you are still here despite the hills of storms coming before us is a miracle. We have a generation behind us waiting for us.
Instead of diluting the message of God, start living it and leading it every day in your life. Impossible is where God starts. Do not limit God’s power by the size of your giant, your obstacles. The only difference between and others is that I’m focusing only on the fruit. We often use the word “but”…Nothing is possible. But when you are in Christ, everything is possible. We need to mobilize leaders who will go to every sphere of life. What is God asked of you isn’t difficult – it’s impossible. The life we live isn’t the dress rehearsal. There is not one question that God can’t answer. There is not one enemy cannot destroy. There is no need God cannot meet. There is nothing that my God cannot do. I can do all things in Christ that is possible. Without faith it’s impossible to please God.
