VFOM SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP LAWS
LAW OF EMPOWERMENT

  • Many leaders say they intend to work themselves out of a job. That is exactly what Jesus did.
  •  
  • In John 20 Jesus puts His final touches on the empowerment of His twelve, and then turns them loose.
  •  
  • He gives them His peace (v.21) and breathes on them to receive the power of the Holy Spirit (v. 22).
  •  
  • This peace and power would enable them to serve supernaturally. Those men He mentored were now ready to be change agents.
