What does spiritual leadership look like? This is a great topic because there are so many motivational and inspirational speakers, and relationship gurus today that we as people have become confused on what true spiritual leadership looks like…..In the church body, I’m not talking just about the physical church building but among us as believers, there shouldn’t be any division. We should be united in mind and thought because we are worshiping the same God. Why would there be a need for division amongst us?
The Lord has anointed and called certain men and women to bring forth his word to his people. Why then do we not listen to them? We should be obedient and show faithfulness towards God 1st, the local church 2nd, godly leaders 3rd. A spiritual leader should be godly, unified in purpose, good examples to others, and serving God joyfully. Leaders should be able to discipline God’s people by teaching them God’s word. Leaders should not desire greed or power. It’s not about becoming rich from doing God’s work and they shouldn’t abuse authority.Know the difference between spiritual leaders and motivational gurus. These motivational gurus will feed your mind with stuff that tickles your ears but doesn’t grow you spiritually. Why do we find ourselves following these individuals? We see the worldly success and associate that with blessings from God. Spiritual leaders should always spread the good news by glorifying Jesus Christ, making disciples out of God’s people, and to build up the people by growing them spiritually in Christ Jesus.
