Needed:  Pastors and Teachers

The Lord has bestowed upon you an honored position laden with responsibility (1Co. 12:28).  The anointing in God’s people grants them discernment (1Jn. 2:27), but there is still a tremendous need for "pastors and teachers" (Eph. 4:11).  Although the Lord opens the eyes of our understanding (Eph. 1:18), teachers "caused them to understand the reading" (Ne. 8:8).  Balance the Sword questions highlight most of the talking points upon which you will want to expound.  It is the group's job to read in preparation for your guidance as in the case of Philip and the Ethiopian (Ac. 8:35).  Balancing the Sword does not tell people what to believe, but does stimulate intellectual hunger. 

Organizational Growth:  Individual and New Leadership
All institutions--whether families, corporations, or otherwise--are strengthened by the personal growth of its members.  The stronger the people, the easier the leadership and the more successful the group.  Balancing the Sword will help you edify your team members and raise up additional leaders who will in turn assist growth.
