Courageous Discerners

Some people have the gift of discernment. Or at the very least, they are incredibly intuitive. They are a gift to the church. But, this is no easy gift to steward.

Some people are really courageous and willing to say hard things and do tough things. We need them too…especially in leadership in the church! Willingness to do and say what is right is not easy, especially when you look up and realize how alone you are afterwards.

But, here is a rare but powerful combination:

Courageous Discerners!

....People who hear from God and see intuitively and spiritually into people and situations.

....And THEN, have the courage to share what they are hearing.

THAT, my friends is a powerful combination. We need people like this in the church.

Are you seeing yourself here anywhere?
