Leadership Summit: Session 3b - Brian Lorritts

Matthew 25:31-46 (Parable of The Sheep and the Goats)
  • Some of Jesus last words before making his way to the cross.
  • Jesus does not want his organization to be monopolized by the affluent.
  • "The Lord has raised you up for the good of the nation." - John Newton to William Wilberforce
  • Book recommendation:  The Clapham Sect by Stephen Tomkins
  • Wilberforce believed the faith would not and should not be relegated to the affluent.
  • This text is not about works-based salvation.
  • This text is not about the root of salvation but the fruit of salvation.
  • 2,350 verses speak of God's heart for the orphan, the alien, the widow, and the poor.
  • Leave margins in your world to give spontaneously and generously to the least of these.
