Spiritual Leadership in the Church

Just wanted to share some thoughts on spiritual leadership in the church. One of the great needs in the church today is for true spirituality and authentic testimony from those who say they are leaders. My prayer is that these thoughts will bless, convict, and encourage you to be faithful in your walk with the Lord.

Those aspiring to be spiritual leaders in the Lord's work must not forget what Henry Blackaby once said about the importance of leadership: The greatness of an organization will be directly proportional to the greatness of its leader. It is rare for an organization to rise above its leaders. If the leader of a church or organization has serious character defects in his life, it is only a matter of time before someone will have the wisdom and the courage to say, "The Emperor has no clothes."

What a challenge to deny our youthful lusts and to be addicted to God.
