Learning about change

in Christian organisations

Most of us will say, our leadership position is a call from God. We are called to this role. We have to do the best we can to respond to it. We are busy because we are responding to the call. But could it be that God is calling you away?

John 4: 4-6 says,‘Now he had to go through Samaria. So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.’

Now imagine Jesus sat by the well. He was tired from the journey. If I was there, I would get a bit tense. There are more baptising that need to be done. Jesus should be out there gaining more disciples. But here he was, tired and resting.

Have we ever wish to have some time to rest? We become too busy to even realise that this is not the life God intended for us. Most of the time, busyness is a decision that we make. There are pressures imposed upon us by people around us. Sometimes busyness is a result of other people’s expectations.

God is calling us away to a place of rest. Like Jesus sat by the well, God is calling us to rest. Let us not be afraid of empty spaces but instead be thankful for those moments of rest.

This week:
How are you going to lead from a place of rest?
How will you respond to God who calls you away to rest?
