Streaming Jesus–Enabling Christ-Followers To Develop Their Full Potential (General André Cox Quotes)

The Holy Spirit wants to work through each believer, not just through one “ordained” person. “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.” –1 Corinthians 12:7

Streaming Jesus keeps Christ-followers beaming!  Perhaps we could let the living, resurrected Jesus stream through anybody present in a church meeting! It’s an incredible thing to see everyday people streaming Jesus! Paul of Tarsus put it this way: “Christ in you, the hope of glory!”

Quotations from General André CoxInternational leader of The Salvation Army:

General Cox 2

“When we look at our history, particularly the early days, the Army readily adapted innovative and unorthodox ideas.”

“Our leadership model is not about personal elevation, but how we enable others to develop their full potential.”

“Jesus clearly did not like the prestigious titles used by the religious leaders of His day and declared: ‘But none of you should be called teacher. You have only one teacher, and all of you are like brothers and sisters.'”

“‘Beyond spectatorship to discipleship!’ The Salvation war requires total mobilization, belief and commitment. Building for God’s Kingdom is the responsibility of all who know Jesus as Savior, living as salt and light just where we are.”

As Salvationists (soldiers of The Salvation Army), we are keenly aware that our places of Christian worship are not retreats from the world for a select few. Rather, they are bridgeheads of God’s Kingdom into the world – Jesus-centered, grace-filled communities serving others selflessly. Our churches are places in which Christ’s disciples can be resourced, empowered and enabled to fulfill the Great Commission – in word and in deed.”

“Moment by moment, day by day, we can know the power and the victory of Christ’s resurrection in our life!”

General Cox displays this:

“The mark of a mature leader is not how many people that they can control, but how many people they can release into ministry.” –Jeremiah Johnson

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
