When a Leader Fails

Artwork for Changing Wanderers into Worshippers: From the Exodus to the Promised Land

In light of the tragic consequences of a spiritual leader’s fall, how should spiritual leaders guard against failure?

As Moses fumed over the Israelites’ complaints, he let anger impel him to disobey God; Moses struck the rock even though God told him only to speak to it. In his sermon on Numbers 20, Chuck Swindoll draws out from Moses’ failure core lessons—including our responsibilities to serve others patiently, obey God completely, and accept God’s plan willingly.

Listen in as Chuck encourages us to lead with the Spirit’s power rather than depend on our own.
