Studying Leadership in the light of the Scriptures is the best way of gaining a wider scope of knowledge and understanding concerning Christian Ministry. The Lord Jesus Christ should be our example to follow and a strict adherence to the principles of truth will surely pave our way to a remarkable spreading of the Gospel.
As the world becomes more chaotic and hopeless, Christians should not just sit down and do nothing about it. Believers should act responsibly to the needs of the lost and pray to God for more workers to go to the mission field. It should be our prayer also to ask God for spiritual leaders to handle mission works effectively.
We need godly pastors and leaders to educate, motivate, strengthen and lead others to walk by faith and to have the determination to pursue our ultimate goal of reaching lost souls globally. We need spiritual leaders whose eyes have the capacity to perceive the unseen enemies and could see outstanding success beyond the horizon of impossibility. We need selfless leaders who could train others to become future leaders. In short, we need leaders with Christ-like attitude in our Local Churches today. Through Bible principles, we could set up a Bible-based mission program that would greatly demonstrate the power of God.
(I) The Pastors and Mission Leaders We Need Today
I Peter 5:1-4 Philippians 4:11-13
-Leaders who are following the steps of the Chief Shepherd
-Leaders who are sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit
-Leaders who want to glorify Our Heavenly Father
-Leaders who have special love for the Lord and His Word
-Leaders who have compassion for lost souls
-Leaders who have a servant’s heart
-Leaders who walk by faith
-Leaders who are watchful and prayerful
-Leaders who have a godly lifestyle
-Leaders who have God-given knowledge, understanding and wisdom to handle the “ins and outs” of a mission program
One essential thing every servant of God must realize is the importance and power of having close communion with God. The time and depth a servant spends communing with God determine his victory over the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life. A servant of the Lord who lives in deep spirituality surely stands head and shoulders above others. His life will dramatically inspire the present generation. He will go in the way of the earth, but his motivating testimony will live and be well-spoken of and will touch many lives for the glory of God.
(II) The War They Must Be Aware Of
II Corinthians 10:4-6 Acts 13:1-12 Acts 5:1-3
Spiritual leaders must consider and be well familiar with spiritual warfare and not be ignorant of the adversary’s many faces in the war zone. Many Christians have little knowledge or are not even aware of
