All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Following his first book on leadership, Leaders Who Last, Dave Kraft consulted with colleagues, readers, and fellow leaders to generate a list of the top ten fatal mistakes leaders make--fatal in that they can be the end of ministry effectiveness, relationships, and God's blessing. Drawing on his extensive experience in helping leaders avoid these errors, Kraft methodically addresses each mistake by looking at the problem, the principle, and the practice of a solution. He uses the narrative device of a fictitious church leadership team to illustrate his points in an engaging manner and offers us a professional book, for male and female leaders, written at a trade level.
