Confront Entitlement With the Power of Grace

This week I’m talking about last days leadership. Leaders in the church live in a culture of entitlement. We will be faced more and more with people who come to faith in Jesus but carry an entitlement attitude into their new life with Him. Leaders will be challenged with teaching, imparting, and demonstrating the lifestyle of a servant that is 180 degrees opposite of the entitlement culture.

It is even now a major challenge in the church as leaders seek to get people in the doors, knowing that many feel entitled to a certain kind of experience and certain amenities. Leaders must seek God for effective ways to communicate the servant attitude of Jesus who came not to be served, but to serve. We must resist the temptation to feed the entitlement attitude with affirmation. We must confront it with the power of grace.
