Transitions are sentences that build bridges between two parts of communication. These bridges make it easier for people to follow what we’ve said and the direction ahead.
As leaders, the concept of transitions is critical.
We build a bridge in relationships. Establishing and maintaining quality relationships requires effective communication.
We build a bridge for future leaders. Leaders are always needed. We make this transition smooth through mentoring.
We build a bridge to eternity. The task before us is to transition from the physical to the spiritual realm by teaching and example.
Are we building bridges with the right purpose and in the right direction?

To cause to grow and become more mature or advanced.
If there was one word leaders need to understand for the success of the church, it would be develop.
Throughout the writings of the apostles, they continued to emphasize the need for the church to develop. Prayers expressed requests for God to help the church develop.
The goal of teaching was to present every person mature in Christ. God gave gifts to various individuals for the purposing of helping the church achieve unity and maturity in the faith. We also find the use of imperative language regarding Peter’s instruction for Christians to grow.
Developing faith in a relationship with God is a vital responsibility of leadership.
We must lead others to a greater love and understanding of the word of truth.
We must assist Christians in an understanding and involvement of their God given abilities in His service.
We must encourage the expression of God’s grace through sharing the love of Christ at the cross.
We must provide an example in all the above.
Leadership is about development. Let us get started.
Learning occurs in several arenas. We learn from the mistakes of others as well as the successes. We learn by observation, teaching, personal study, and experience.
We learn from teachers with academic credentials and others who simply have experience.
Learning is not the issue. We learn something everyday. We cannot help it and we cannot resist it. Everything we see with our eyes, hear with our ears, smell with our nose, and feel with our hands creates a learning situation. The empirical connection to our learning demonstrates the value of today’s post.
However, the importance of what we learn really makes the difference.
Just from a spiritual perspective, we learn information that promotes a greater knowledge of God’s word, a closer relationship with the Savior, and a walk in step with the Spirit.
Our fellowship with brothers and sisters must be characterized by love, patience, and an understanding that promotes family.
Learning matters that are spiritual in nature provides a foundation for lasting leadership. When considering the importance of learning, remember it is what we learn that carries the greatest importance.
Join us Monday-Friday!! Devotional thoughts, Scripture Readings and Prayer to start your day right!
Maybe you are thinking, it is only a dream. Perhaps it is a scam or an incredible sales pitch, and maybe that is true.
However, as long as our leadership is limited to thinking that the opportunity to change the world is an impossibility, we never will.
Change occurs one person at a time, but if we can take that one person and groom them them to do the same, we are multiplying the sphere of influence.
Now, consider taking that same sphere of influence into a classroom where twenty to thirty people are groomed, the figures multiply more quickly.
While we are considering the possibilities, imagine following this same process in 50 locations around the world. What started as an effort to change the life of one person is now influencing the lives of hundreds, or even thousands.
The power of this process is magnified to incredible heights when those who are influenced in each location go and change the lives of those within their sphere of influence.
This is how we change the world and it begins with you and me. May God use us to do so!
