This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, and this is the “Leadership That Gets the Job Done” Podcast, Episode 58.
Our Bible passage for this episode is Psalms 75:5-7 which says, “Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.”
Our quote for this episode is from Ray Kroc. He said, “The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.”
In this podcast, we are using three books as our texts: Spiritual Leadership: Moving People On To God’s Agenda by Henry and Richard Blackaby; Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, by John Maxwell; and Organizational and Management Leadership: A Christian Perspective by Anita Satterlee.
Our topic today is Part 4 of the Preface from Organizational and Management Leadership: A Christian Perspective by Anita Satterlee. She continues:
Organizational and Management Leadership: A Christian Perspective provides learners from diverse academic backgrounds an overview of the theoretical knowledge and practical experiences needed to be a literate and competent manager and leader. While the book assumes that learners will have limited knowledge in the topic prior to enrolling in the course, the content provides exit learning and competencies comparable to those experienced in courses which require prerequisite knowledge or prior coursework in the field. Thus, this book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses such as Organizational Management, Principles of Management, and Leadership in which no prerequisite knowledge or prior coursework are required for enrollment.
Organizational and Management Leadership: A Christian Perspective is especially suitable for those professors who desire to maximize learning in online and accelerated degree completion courses. Many online professors lament the fact that their learners do not properly know how to study. Further, the busy demands in their learners’ lives diminish the amount of time they have available to devote to their studies. The understandable end result of these two factors is that learners may choose to focus only on completing and submitting the online assignments at the expense of substantive long-term learning.
A unique learning feature of Organizational and Management Leadership: A Christian Perspective is the inclusion of an organic learning system that helps the reader develop excellent study habits. The organic learning system requires readers to engage in a series of educational exercises located at the end of each Chapter. The exercises, based on proven education principles, are intended to be completed in the following sequential order.
— PRAYER —
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, here’s how.
First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”
Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Now this is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.
Romans 10:9-13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
