"The truly worthy career does not end with its own story, but
in the story of those who follow." - Richard Phillips
The church exploded with growth after Jesus left earth. Stop and think about that reality. Jesus told his disciples it would be better for them if he "went away" because then the Holy Spirit would come upon them which is exactly what happened on Pentecost. A leadership lesson we can learn from Jesus' example is a major component of spiritual leadership work is to develop a team of leaders who are prepared to take their God given place in unleashing a movement of God in the world which out lives the leader. We see this principle in John Wesley's life where after his death the Methodist movement spread far beyond the scope of his ministry when he was in the flesh.
