Conrad Mbewe addresses the significance of leadership in the Bible and how it affects nations. He emphasizes that leaders often reflect the character of God, and their actions have either positive or negative consequences. The story of Israel's shepherds who fail in their roles, resulting in the scattering of God's people, is consequential to the church. Mbewe asks for prayer guidance and emphasizes the importance of God-centered leadership. He draws on Jeremiah and other prophets as examples of messianic figures who arise in times of deceitfulness and takes a stand against them. The Bible provides examples of God's intervention in history to restore his people, making these prophecies of specific importance to all Christians. Watch Conrad Mbewe preach Jesus and the gospel from Jeremiah 23:1-8 at The Gospel Coalition's 2011 national conference at McCormick Place in Chicago.
