Yesterday I shared with my team some “staff values” that I picked up while visiting Church of the Highlands. I really like the simplicity, clarity & life-giving nature of these. Plus, they are derived straight from the personality of Jesus in Revelation 4:6-7. I’ll give you the values & the personality trait it comes from.
1. Value :: Love God – Jesus is POWERFUL.
“God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil because God was with him.” Acts 10:38
2. Value :: Love People – Jesus values healthy RELATIONSHIPS.
“We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8
3. Value :: The Right Attitude – Jesus is a SERVANT.
“The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
4. Value :: A Good Work Ethic – Jesus practices EXCELLENCE.
“People were overwhelmed with amazement. ‘He has done everything well,’ they said. ‘He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.'” Mark 7:37
