Being in a leadership position doesn’t make you a leader.Neither does having a leadership title. These things only suggest that you might be a leader. They proclaim potential, not success.

There are two essential questions for people holding leadership titles and positions. The first is “Am I really leading people?” The second is “Should people really follow me?” Both questions lead us to an especially potent third question everyone in a leadership position should ask before it’s too late: “In the eternal scheme of life, am I worthy to be followed?”

The Verdict: What the Resurrection Means

Michael Anthony, Godfactor Founder & President | April 21st, 2014 | Blog, Personal Growth, Resources, World Events

Man’s opinion of God is fluid; God’s opinion of man is fixed. Trust and obey or rust and decay. These are the words Leonard Ravenhill wrote to me in a letter years ago. Though dead, through his words, Ravenhill lives. God’s verdict is unchanging. He made his statement on the ministry, the message and the Messianic identity of Jesus Christ with the resurrection. The resurrection and the cross join hands to make God’s definitive statement about the human condition – and His solution.

You might think you understand what Jesus went through on the cross. But have you considered what He endured beforehand? And why? “The Death of Death” podcast will help you appreciate what Jesus went through, so you can soar.

Living an Abundant Life

Michael Anthony, Godfactor Founder & President | April 7th, 2014 | Blog, Personal Growth, Relationships

GOD STILL DOES MIRACLES, and yesterday we witnessed a real one at GraceYork.com. To relive it, listen to the companion podcast to today’s blog post (see below). You’ll be blessed, significantly. It involves the true story of a woman who stole money from the church offering basket on two occasions – and was caught. She repented, and then experienced the blessing of God in a dramatic, life-changing way. In turn, we were all blessed. It was a huge win for everyone, as repentance often is. Repentance opens the door to reconciliation, healing, wholeness and the blessing of God. Try it and you’ll see what I mean. I’m still jumping with joy over the black eye the devil got yesterday as God’s people at Grace Fellowship did the right thing, the right way, and pursued the glory of God in a difficult scenario. Had we not, the abundant life that is found only in Jesus Christ would have eluded not only the person who stole, but also our whole church.

Is This Just Chaos, or is it Demonic?

Michael Anthony, Godfactor Founder & President | March 31st, 2014 | Blog, Personal Growth, Resources

Refusing to acknowledge the truth has no affect on the truth. Truth stands regardless of how we see it. But how we see it can definitely affect how we live. The truth is that evil spirits roam this earth – and they’re looking for someone to latch onto. You need to make yourself “greasy”, so any spirit looking to latch on can’t hold on. Here’s how . . .

Pay Attention, Life is Happening

Michael Anthony, Godfactor Founder & President | March 28th, 2014 | Blog, Leadership, Personal Growth, Relationships

Think often about the brevity of time. Your time. Don’t let it discourage you. Let it inspire you. Consider, often, that you won’t be here forever, and neither will the people around you. Live like you mean it. Do this, and you’ll never be bored. Do this and you, while alive, will be truly living. 

How to Handle a Faith Crisis

Michael Anthony, Godfactor Founder & President | March 20th, 2014 | Blog, Leadership, Personal Growth, Resources

The circumstances of life will pound you – or rock you into a state of indifferent numbness. Sooner or later you could find yourself in a position where you just don’t have the depth of faith you wish we had. It happens to all of us eventually. We find ourselves dry, floating in a sea of doubt – or at least drifting toward one. What can you do? More than you think. Here are a few things from experience that I’ve learned can build faith, and help overcome a faith crisis:

Did Jesus Call You To Do That?

Michael Anthony, Godfactor Founder & President | March 17th, 2014 | Blog, Leadership, Personal Growth

It’s not only possible. It’s probable. With the passage of time, we begin to unwittingly start doing things “for Jesus” that He never asked us to do. And when that happens watch out – because it invariably means that we have stopped doing the one thing that we shouldbe doing.
