One of the greatest stories of faith in the Book of Luke and when the centurion's son is sick and looks to Jesus to heal him. Jesus states he will go to the centurion's home and see his son, but the centurion states "You just need to say he's healed, and it will be done." 

 

The Roman tells of how he commands hundreds of men and for something to be done, he only needs to say the word and it will be done. He's confident that his men will accomplish the goal regardless of what it is. So he states to Jesus, all you need to do is say it, and I know it will be done.

 

Imagine having that much faith in someone, that all you need to do is say it and you'll know...I mean really know that it will be done.

 

Now we know that faith in God and faith in man are two different things, but when you operate in a team, you need to have faith in your team. The question is....how do you get it, and if you have it, how do you spread it?

 

We all go through our phases where we feel it's just not getting done. We spend too much in the day checking on things that we were hoping were already done to find out they are not. We double and triple check and find out the day is gone and not much got accomplished, or at least not as much as we would have liked.

 

We want to have faith, but sometimes....it can be weak. 

Now there is the question, how can our faith grow? When we speak of our faith in God we can be confident that as we fervently seek Him, He will seek us. 

 

Now is there a way to apply this to our team building? I think there is. As we empower our team, they will become powerful and when they become powerful, they will get things done. And when they get things done, you confident that things are getting done.

 

Being responsible with a few things, let us be confident to allow our team to be responsible with many things.

Be the person that gets things done for your team and they will be the ones to get things done for you.

Amen Brad. When Jesus washed the disciples feet, it was another great story of leading by example.

Thanks for sharing this Rex; empowering and holding accountable and believing in your people definitely will grow them. "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." it says in Romans. For our employees to grow they need to hear a consistent message from us.
