'and the people, when they knew it, followed him:and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God and healed them that had need of healing'
A leader must always have space for people in his heart. When a mission is being carried out, one things is certain new persons would come your way and there'd be need to cater for them. Its expected that a Leader's heart be enlarged.
Jesus was in ministry in Israel and people began to troupe after him, the striking word in that verse was that 'he RECEIVED them'. Irrespective of their number he received them. Have you as a leader developed an accommodating capacity to receive people?
Do you know that what saved Rahab and her entire household in the massacre of Jericho was that 'she received the spies with peace'?
How accommodating are you?
It pays to be Like Jesus Christ, as God sends persons your way, minister to them by receiving them.
Central Truth: Your receptive nature attracts more people to you and gives you the opportunity to minister to the needs of other.
FOCUS SCRIPTURE: Luke 9:11
