Leadership (Part 10)
The Qualifier: His Word
Oh, how I love Your Law!
It is my meditation all the day.
You, through Your Commandments, make me wiser than my enemies;
For They are ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers,
For Your Testimonies are my meditation...
I have restrained my feet from every evil way,
That I may keep Your Word.
I have not departed from Your Judgments,
For You Yourself have taught me.
How sweet are Your Words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through Your Precepts I get understanding;
Therefore I hate every false way.
Your Word is a Lamp to my feet
And a Light to my path.
Psalm 119:97-105 (NKJV)
Actors, models and talent for Christ: God's Word is your Qualifier. I confess my absolute dependence on It. I am in love with God's Word, and I intend to stay in this relationship.
Consider Adam She: AMTC's president, my leader and son-in-law. He is unchurched and un-degreed. As the American-born child of Chinese immigrants, he was a teenage rebel. In desperation, his parents sent him to four different high schools: Atlanta's best public school, Atlanta's best private school, a Christian school and even a military academy. None of them would tame or teach the defiant one: a young man searching for truth. Now Adam leads God's march into media.
Consider me: AMTC's founder, daughter of a super-model. I grew up Episcopalian, became a Buddhist and dropped out of college. Without direction, I fell into the family business. Work became my idol. I wanted to be the best. I sought man's approval and worked ceaselessly toward this impossible goal. I believed in God, but didn't know Jesus. I didn't open His Book until I was 51. Now His Word is my constant Companion in AMTC's quest to raise up talent missionaries.
By standards common among today's leading Christians, neither Adam nor I are qualified to lead an international Christian ministry of end-times significance. But God's Word is our Qualifier. Jesus Christ is our Qualifier. Surely, God has provided us with human teachers along His way: even more, an amazing group of field workers who share our passion.
Actors, models and talent for Christ: Most of you have been raised in God's church. I hope your earthly parents fed you His pure, undiluted Word. I pray you eat It today. If not, I am proof that it's never too late to adjust your eating habits. Adam is proof that the only School you must attend is God's. His School is His Word. Stay in It.*
