Spirit Media is made up of Contractors. Managers. And Developers.
Recently, Kevin White, the CEO of Spirit Media, challenged our staff in core values for effective leadership. As we celebrated the formation of three departments: sales, production, and operations, Kevin trained our new department leaders in front of the whole company. Kevin pointed out that department heads are to embody these core values. His point was that these values are not just for department heads but for the whole company.
Today’s value is to be a Developer.
God is the ultimate developer.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.”
Genesis 1:1-5 (NLT)
“Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began!”
John 17:24 (NLT)
“Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.”
Ephesians 1:4 (NLT)
“For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake.”
1 Peter 1:18-20 (NLT)
“This letter is from Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives. This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God—who does not lie—promised them before the world began.”
Titus 1:1-2 (NLT)
What if the Bible was the story of how God just started working? Or what if it shared how God started managing? Fortunately, it starts with God developing.
