True apostolic leaders know they haven’t appointed themselves for their own glory or power – but they have been anointed and appointed by God.

It is the anointing that produces lasting fruit, signs, wonders, and transformation power.

The Apostle Paul knew he was not as exciting as some at presenting the Gospel – but “God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them” Acts 19:11-12.  God used Paul to influence and change much of the known world through signs, wonders, and his steady words about Christ and the Good News. He demonstrated the transforming power of God.

A dynamic personality will not produce lasting fruit – but the anointing will.

Look for the anointing!
