February 27th 2017 – Godly Leadership

“For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because he burned the bones of the king of Edom to lime.” (Amos 2:1)

As Israel was coming through the desert to the promised land, Balak, the king of Moab attempted to bribe God’s prophet to curse God’s people. Obviously, Balak was not a good leader as time and time again he dismissed God’s words in order to advance his own kingdom. While Balak had the opportunity to submit to God, he chose not to and he and his people ended up suffering the consequences. Unlike the Moabites, it’s important for the church to have godly leaders.

Leaders inside the church have a responsibility to remain faithful to scripture and stand firm on God’s Word so that others will see this and be encouraged to do the same. In 1 Timothy, the Lord supplies qualifications for those who enter into leadership. These qualifications include being faithful to the body of Christ and their families. They must be self-controlled, peace loving and gentle. Living inside these guidelines, leaders are best equipped to guide others into a life dedicated to our Lord.

“Strong leadership in the church is important.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your Word and for the godly leaders in my life. Father, I pray that You would continue to be with those in church leadership as they seek You. Give them wisdom and discernment as they teach, counsel and care for those in the body of Christ. Lord, protect them from the enemy and fill them with Your Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
