How to lead others as a cell leader

Posted by on Oct 19, 2014 in News, Principal's sermon notes | 0 comments

Not everyone will lead a cell but every believer has the potential to lead a cell

 

A cell is two or more believers committed in partnership to fulfilling the Great Commission through worship, ministry, evangelism, fellowship, and discipleship

 

Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

 

Leviticus 26:8 Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you project planning tools.

 

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

Two cannot walk together except they agree 0unqydc. Find someone who agrees with you to disciple others together. Jesus sent them out two by two. Normally they had great relationships between them

 

Why the need to lead others?

 

  1. The need to obey the Great Commission

Matthew 28:19 to 20 19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.Amen.

 

  1. There is always someone less experienced in the faith than we are

Romans 15:1 to 4 1 We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. 3 For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

 

  1. We are to care for one another.  We are our brothers keeper

Galatians 6: 2 Bear one anothers burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

 

  1. In order to have an environment to care for those we win to Christ

Hebrews 10:24, 25 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

 

  1. In order to grow spiritually and bear spiritual fruit. It also helps us to avoid spiritual stagnation

John 15:8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

6. It is our responsibility to disciple others

2 Timothy 2:1, 2 1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

 

How to lead others as a Cell leader

 

  1. Make yourself available to serve in this capacity

Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us? Then I said, Here am I! Send me.

 

  1. Be willing to be trained and discipled by those who are already experienced

 

  1. Be committed to winning souls for Christ and spreading the gospel

Luke 19:10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.

 

  1. Look out for those who need encouragement and strengthen them

Romans 12: 10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;

 

  1. Do not allow your weaknesses and failures to define you

Hebrews 4:15, 16 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 

  1. Make yourself accountable to spiritual authority

Hebrews 13:17 Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.

 

  1. Make yourself accountable to those you disciple by your example

1 Timothy 4:12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

 

Other Guidelines

 

Be committed to following up on other believers especially New Believers, visitors and those who miss service

 

Hebrews 12:12, 13 12 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

 

Isaiah 35:3 Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees.

 

Be there for those who you wish to be part of your Cell group especially when they are going through challenges – birth, marital conflict, family challenges, bereavement, moving house, loss of employment, financial pressure

 

Be committed to a daily devotional life. Be committed to holiness

Hebrews 12:14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:
