August 22, 2021 – A Leader of Leaders – Matthew 5:13-16

The Bethlehem family of ministries exists to encourage, equip, and empower people to be Spirit-led champions, unleashing each person’s leadership calling.  Every single person is called by God to be a person of influence, to be salt and light in a dark world.  That influence is leadership.  Many people, however, do not see themselves as leaders or understand the powerful impact they have within their circle of influence.  But Jesus did not exercise his leadership to gather a mass of followers.  His ministry plan was to transform the world by raising up us as leaders to use our gifts of influence to propel people toward eternal life.

Matthew 5:13-16 [Jesus said,] 13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

About the speaker

David Langewisch

First and foremost you need to know I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I believe my life is fully in him. I feel good about my training to be a pastor. However, my heart's desire is to simply be a servant of Christ, used by him to help people experience fullness of life in him. Sometimes I think I’m smart. Sometimes I think I’m funny. But I count all of this as a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ and being found in him. My favorite book of the Bible is Romans, and if you have to pin me down, my favorite chapter is Romans 8. Personally, I think this matters more than knowing I’m from Minnesota, or that I was graduated from Lutheran schools starting with elementary school. Curiosity might lead you to ask about my wonderful wife, Lynn, and four children, but I would probably exaggerate about their greatness and how helpful would that be? If you really want to know other positions I’ve held, honors I’ve received, etc., you can ask and I will try to remember. But when you walk away from our conversation, this is what I want you to remember about me – I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus and I believe my life is fully in him. And if, in my contact with you, some of this rubs off on you, and you share the same perspective with greater conviction, I will count it a blessing.

  • As we all are “influencers” in one way or another, I ask that “God order our footsteps by His word and make our hearts sincere” with love and integrity.
