Handling Pressure Jesus' Way

Date recorded: 24 May 2020 | Speaker: Jim Cecy | Event: ELF Leaders of Christian Organisations Network
Topic: Leadership


Most of us who are engaged in ministry face the life-long struggle with saying “No,” especially out of fear of disappointing people we are called to love and serve. Sometimes, our reasons never quite satisfy. Having to make difficult decisions in the midst of the on-going pressure of pleasing people can take us down a road of loneliness and isolation. We are not alone. Jesus Himself faced these same pressures and expectations, even from His most intimate friends. From the story of the death of His dear friend, Lazarus, and His response to the sisters who were initially disappointed in Jesus’ inactivity, we learn how to handle pressure Jesus’ way (cf. John 11:11).
