You Are Not Alone
How help from God and group members takes the worry out of leading
There are few other tasks in the family of God that surpass shepherding
Jesus' flock—which is what you as a leader are doing. As you prepare
to lead—whether it is one session or an entire series—keep
in mind that you are not alone. God knows everything about you, and he
knew that you would be asked to lead your group.
It is common for all good leaders to feel unready to lead. Moses, Solomon,
Jeremiah and Timothy were all reluctant to lead. But as he did for them,
God promises to us, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake
you" (Hebrews 13:5).
Remember, you don't have to try to do this alone. Pray right now for God
to help you build a healthy leadership team. If you can enlist a co-leader,
your experience will be much richer.
This is your chance to involve as many people as you can in building a
healthy group. All you have to do is call and ask people to help—you'll
be surprised at the response.
