First 50 Days, Week 1: When you go(grow) in a different direction than your leaders.

Prepping for BIG life Change

Observation #1 

You may find yourself cutting ties or having conflict with present leadership; or simply growing in a different direction.

Matthew 28:11-15

11 Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened. 12 When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 saying, “Tell them, ‘His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.’ 14 And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
