Excerpt from My Up Coming Book:
Judging Rightly~The Rest of The Story…
“If Satan can trip up the Leader, he can capture a whole Congregation!”
As Leaders we have a very Deep & Wide sphere of influence, whether we know or understand that is irrelevant. The truth of the matter still remains, and that is we are held to a higher standard than most people.
It matters more than we realize how we conduct ourselves, in private as well as in the public. We cannot give Satan any bait to hold over our heads or use against us to move us out of the will of God for our lives. If Satan can get us to move just a little bit, we are still out of the will of God. Scary!
Many times we see Satan reeking havoc within the Churches simply because he nudged the Leadership just enough to cause them to move ever so slightly, and his influence got in and started big, big trouble!
Anyone in a leadership position whether they are a part of the Church or not, whether they believe in God- or a god doesn’t matter, they have influence over others and will give an account for that leadership.
. Acts 20:28
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.Accountable to the Blood.
He must increase, but I must decrease.Because we are to model ourselves after the one who gave his everything for all mankind.
It is an abomination for kings to commit wicked acts, For a throne is established on righteousness.Not merely referring to “Believers” or Followers of Yeshua.
Daniel 2:21 (CJB) he brings the changes of seasons and times; he installs and deposes kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those with discernment.
Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it springs all life.What is in your heart comes forth from your mouth and into the ears of others.
But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
So beloved, let us remember to be ever so watchful and vigilant over our own minds, hearts and bodies so that we can serve our Creator with everything he has given us!
If we fail at times~and we do~ don’t stay down, repent, apply the blood, get up and go on!
