A New Year Commitment to Excellence

The holidays and new year are a perfect time to reflect and commit/recommit ourselves wholeheartedly to Jesus. Don’t allow your past to define you and your future! God delights in comebacks and loves ‘do-overs’ with people who humbly come to Him and ask for forgiveness. People like me and you!

Throughout the Bible, Jesus chose people for significant leadership roles and to be His apostles who messed up, had horrible pasts, committed murder and adultery, along with various other sinful acts. If the Lord can forgive these fallen men within the Bible and renew their hearts and minds, he can certainly forgive our mess-ups and help us reach our full potential. Romans 3:23 says, “All of us have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.” And 1 John 1:9 encourages us, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Friends, I believe we are living in a world of compromise all around us each day. I recently wrote a book, “The Discipline of Consistency in a World of Compromise” and will be sharing different excerpts from the book through the coming months. The leadership model I write about is a Christ-centered leadership style called Consistent-Centric Leadership. There are 10 pillars which I will touch on in my “Consistency Corner” each month which include the disciplines of trust, character, accountability, integrity, humility, wisdom, listening, persistence, determination, and authenticity.

In the meantime, Happy New Year and continue to Be the Difference!
