Leadership Transition: Running with Purpose Hebrews 12: 1-3 Four important principles to remember during a transition 1. Run the race that is marked out for you - For us 2. Be aware of the sin that gets you so easily tangled up 3. Learn from those who have run the race before us 4.

Acts 1:15-26 Our text opens with the Apostle Peter taking the lead among the apostles. His failure and disgrace behind him, this natural leader steps to the front and deals with the empty position left in the twelve by the treachery and suicide of Judas Iscariot. Apparently Peter has been reading his Bible and connecting the prophecies of the Old Testament with their present situation. He addresses the group by quoting Scripture revealing both the prophecy Jesusâ€™ betrayal by Judas (Psalm 41:9) and the imprecatory Scripture (Psalm 69:25; Psalm 109:8) that laid the foundation for his decision to replace Judas in the Twelve. This text not only offers us a complete history of the the betrayer of Jesus Christ but also offers us an incredible example of the beauty and integrity of the Word of God. This decision on the part of the disciples has been the subject of much debate. Should they have waited for the Holy Spiritâ€™s gifting before they made the decision? While the question still remains we do know this. The disciples followed the directives of the Word of God and bathed their decision process with prayer. This is the great lesson that we can learn from this historical account.
