Session Notes

  • If we lead strong, we’e going to lead people to Jesus, because people are going to want to be like us.
  • I realized I was stalking Jesus, and I was creeping both of us out.
  • Let us not love with words or speech but with action and in truth. -1 John 3:18
  • I didn’t want a son-in-law, I wanted a friend, so we did stuff together.
  • What is it that Jesus made you to do?
  • Live a life worthy of the calling you’ve received.
  • Don’t live someone else’s calling; it will come off like a bad Elvis impression.
  • Finding your calling is like a Polaroid photo – let it develop over time.
  • Funny story about he & his sun landing a sea plane on a small lake – Land the plane
  • I’m a poser. Some of you are posing too. Don’t be afraid. Live a life worthy of the calling YOU have received.
  • If you want to be a great leader, see people for who they are becoming.
  • Interrobang – question mark with an exclamation mark.
  • I don’t know what heave is going to be like, but don’t you hope Jesus touches you on the nose and says “You rascal!”
  • If you want to be leaders in your community, say “Yes.”
  • But you can’t say yes to everything. Every Thursday I quit something.
  • God wants to blow your mind!
  • Isn’t it great that God’s ability to forgive us is bigger than our ability to get it?
  • Romans 8 – nothing can separate us from the love of God
